Bolaji Tunji who is the special adviser on communication and strategy to former Oyo State governor, Abiola Ajimobi, has dismissed as false, the news spreading about the death of his principal.
Tunji took to Facebook on Thursday to discard the viral rumour of Ajimobi’s death, saying “kindly disregard all rumours, just rumours. In all, we remain prayerful.”
The social media suddenly became abuzz with the news of the former governor’s death Thursday afternoon, except that there was no known source to the news as it spread fast and wide.
He had been known to be critically ill with COVID-19, and has been said to be in intensive care in a health facility in Lagos State.
Prior to his illness, Ajimobi has been at the centre of the leadership tussle in Nigeria’s ruling party, the All Progressive Congress (APC).
