Former governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi, has died at the age of 70 after a 3-week battle with coronavirus.
The 70-year-old, was hospitalised at First Cardiologist and Cardiovascular Consultants Hospital, Lagos for COVID-19 treatment.
The former Governor had reportedly slipped into coma some days ago and there were rumours that he was dead. Members of his family and media aide denied the rumours.
However, sources told SaharaReporters 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.
