Former governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi is dead! This is coming a few weeks after his alleged death was rumoured.
At the time, the rumour was dispelled by his media aide, Mr Bolaji Tunji, and one of his children.
Ajimobi, who was born on 16 December 1949, was reported to have been on a life support machine since last Friday at the First Cardiology Hospital in Ikoyi, Lagos.
One of his security men, who served him for eight years, said the death of the APC chieftain was “real this time.”
An impeccable source confided in Vanguard that the news of his death was kept away from the public because of his recent appointment by the National Working Committee of the APC as acting National Chairman of the party.
The source says: “It is true this time around. It was hidden before because of the political development within the party.”
The source further disclosed that the former governor had lung surgery.
It was further gathered that the medical experts treating him tried all they could to revive him but to no success.
