Abiola Ajimobi’s death was not announced immediately he died due to political reasons. Kemi Olunloyo who is a relative to the dead former Oyo State governor took to her Twitter and Youtube accounts to clarify these.
Investigative journalist Fisayo Soyombo had earlier reported that the last governor was dead. The announcement brought him a lot of backlashes also from Kemi who went to the immediate relatives to confirm the development.
Fisayo insisted that Ajimobi was actually in a vegetative state and nothing again can be done for his condition. He also said that the doctors have given up on his health condition.
The announcement was only made a day before yesterday and Nigerians knew something was up politically. This much Kemi Olunloyo can now confirm to us in a series of tweets and a video on her Youtube channel.
See her tweet below:
