Former governor of Oyo state, Abiola Ajimobi is dead. The 70-year-old has been critically ill for a while now. Reports had it that he has been on life support for days.
Ajimobi had been on a life support machine since last Friday at First Cardiology Hospital in Ikoyi, Lagos. This was after he slipped into a coma following Coronavirus complications. He finally died on Thursday.
On Monday, reports flew that Ajimobi slipped into a deep coma and may not make any recovery. This was going by the observations of medical experts around him.
Furthermore, the former Oyo governor had a lung surgery since being rushed to the Lagos hospital. However, he made no progress while his kidneys had also failed.
In addition, his doctors informed his family that his situation had defied every medical intervention. Moreso, only a miracle could bring him back to life.
Those projections came true on Thursday as the ex-governor finally succumbed to death.
It is pertinent to note that Covid-19 has also killed several prominent Nigerians including late Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari. Kyari was also treated for the disease at First Cardiology Hospital until he died.
May the soul of the departed rest in peace.
