A one-time governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi, is dead.
The 70-year-old, who had been on a life support machine since last Friday at First Cardiology Hospital in Ikoyi, Lagos, after he allegedly slipped into a coma following purported Coronavirus complications, allegedly died on Thursday.
It was gathered on Monday, that the ex-governor has been on life support after slipping into a deep coma and may not recover following body language from the medical doctor a close source said.
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.
