Former governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi, has died.
According to details, the 70-year-old former governor had been on life support since last Friday, at the First Cardiology Hospital, Ikoyi, Lagos State after he slipped into coma following coronavirus complications.
Ajimobi finally lost the battle, as he’s died on Thursday, according to findings by Sahara Reporters.
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.
Recall that his aides last week announced that he has recovered from the virus but was being treated for other ailment.
The source who spoke to SR 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.
On June 18, it was rumored that Ajimobi passed on from coronavirus complications as a result of underlying health conditions.
It was later debunked by his aides and family members as untrue, but that he was recovering from another illness.
Reports emerged three days ago that the Senator’s health deteriorated and was allegedly placed on life support after undergoing lung surgery but his kidneys failed.
More details to come.
