Walter Oyatogun,Ace NTA broadcaster, dies

Walter Oyatogun has died on  Friday, 14th of February, 2014, after a long battle with his health due to the stroke he suffered a few years ago. Walter, who died in his later 70s, was a man who gave his best as a broadcaster in the history of Nigeria. His voice was resonate and people loved to hear it on NTA in the 70s and 80s. His children are also into broadcasting, who include Moyo and Mofe Oyatogun, both presenters and producers of TALKBACK and DAILYGUIDE on Star FM, Lagos; Layole Oyatogun, another daughter of his, works with Silverbird Television. May his soul rest in perfect peace. We pray for those he has left behind for grace and fortitude to bear the loss.
