According to report released few minutes ago on Sahara Reporters platform, the former governor of Oyo state, Abiola Ajimobi’s death has been officially announced.
Recall that 9News Nigeria had on 18th June 2020 reported that the Oyo state governor died in a hospital in Lagos after battling with health complications induced by Corona-virus infections.
The news of Ajimobi’s death was refuted following statements from the ex governor’s Media Aide who according to news reports stated that “Ajomibi is alive and not dead.” Another debunking remark also emerged quoting the ex-governor’s daughter in law as saying that “their father is still alive.”
SAHARA REPORTERS’ REPORT
The 70-year-old, who had been on a life support machine since last Friday at First Cardiology Hospital in Ikoyi, Lagos, after slipping into a coma following Coronavirus complications, finally died on Thursday, according to findings by SaharaReporters.
On Monday, a reliable source close to the ex-governor had told SaharaReporters that Ajimobi had been on life support machine after he slipped into a deep coma and may not make any recovery going by the observations of medical experts around him.
The source further disclosed that the former Oyo governor had a lung surgery since being rushed to the Lagos hospital but made no progress while his kidneys had also failed.
Doctors treating Ajimobi, it was reliably gathered, last Friday informed his family that his situation had defied every medical intervention and that only a miracle could bring him back to life.
Those projections came true on Thursday as the ex-governor finally succumbed to the virus that has also killed several prominent Nigerians including late Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari, who was also treated for the disease at First Cardiology Hospital until he died.
