Professor Benjamin Oluwakayode Osuntokun died in Cambridge, England on
September 22 1995 after a protracted illness and was buried in his native
Okemesi, Ekiti, Nigeria on October 7, 1995. His death robbed Nigeria of its
leading neurologist and one of its icons of modern medicine; Africa of one
of the Foundation members of the Pan African Association of Neurological
Sciences (PAANS) and the World Federation of Neurology of one of its most
prolific writers and productive researchers on tropical neurology. Born in
January 1935 Osuntokun started his elementary school education in 1940 at
the Holy Trinity School, Ilawe Ekiti, where he was born, and finished it in
1945 at Emmanuel School Ado Ekiti. He entered Christ's School Ado Ekiti in
1946, the famous and prestigious secondary school which moulded many
Nigerians who later won prominence in various walks of life; thereafter, he
studied medicine at the University College, Ibadan, then a College of
London University.
