Former Governor of Oyo state Senator Abiola Ajimobi is dead
A reliable source confirmed to Mouthpiece NGR that he died today.
Although the news of his demise was announced last week but it was denied by the media aide, Bolaji Tunji.
The 70-year-old slipped into coma on Thursday for the second time as a result of COVID-19 complications.
The news sparked rumours of his death, sending panic across the landscape especially among his supporters and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) where he is the National Deputy Chairman (South) of the party.
On Monday, a reliable source close to the ex-governor confirmed to Mouthpiece NGR that Ajimobi had been on life support machine since Friday 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 has had a lung surgery since being hospitalised but made no progress while his kidneys have also failed.
Doctors treating Ajimobi, it was reliably gathered, on Friday informed his family that his situation had defied every medical intervention and that only a miracle can bring him back to life.
