“Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.”
It came as huge shock when NAIJ.com received report that Adeyinka Adeparusi, the award winning photojournalist, was dead.
When Yinka, a staff of NAIJ.com, stepped out of his house on Sunday, November 13, with a brief ‘I’ll be back’, he had no idea it would be the last time he would be steeping foot in his house.
He was involved in motorcycle accident in Abuja and died on the spot.
Yinka was a perfect gentleman who loved his job and made an indelible mark in the Nigerian media industry.
He was present in court during the trial of Olisa Metuh, Nnamdi Kanu and other political developments in the country.
Below are photos that show his amazing contribution to political developments in Nigeria.

Life is a lot more fragile than we think. Learn to treat others in a way that leaves no regrets.
Yinka will surely be missed. May his soul Rest in Peace!
