Tragedy struck the Nigerian engineering family early hours of yesterday as one of its finest, Engr Khaleel Ibrahim Inuwa passed.
Unarguably one of the most respected among engineers of his generation, the deceased spent three days of the past week in participating in video conference engagements on the on going mobilisation of local initiatives and engineering responses to current COVID-19 pandemic under the auspices of the Nigerian Academy of Engineering.
He died and was buried in Kano in accordance with Islamic injunctions.
The Nigerian Academy of Engineering posted an obituary announcement. In it, it says:
