Ex governor of oyo state, abiola ajimobi

The ex-governor of Oyo state and ex-senator, Abiola Adeyemi Ajimobi, has died from a critical health condition that lasted for weeks.

The ex-senator died on Thursday at a private hospital in Lagos after spending weeks in intensive care from coronavirus complications, according to Akin Alabi, a federal lawmaker and political associate of the former governor’s. He was 70.

While confirming the development to PREMIUM TIMES, Mr. Alabi said he was shocked by Ajimobi’s death.

Mr. Ajimobi’s passing came a week after he was rumoured to have died at the same private hospital. That rumour turned to be false.

He was first hospitalised in early June after contracting the deadly virus that has now sickened millions and claimed nearly 500,000 lives across the world.
