Former Oyo State governor, Abiola Ajimobi, has died after battling coronavirus-related symptoms.
The 70-year-old, who is believed to have been on life support machine since last Friday, was confirmed dead on Thursday at First Cardiologist and Cardiovascular Consultants Hospital in Ikoyi, Lagos.
He had been hospitalised since June 2.
The two-term governor was appointed Deputy National Chairman (South) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) last month.
It was gathered that Ajimobi, who was diabetic, later tested negative for COVID-19. His health, however, slumped gradually due to the ailment.
Ajimobi’s wife, Florence, had been hospitalised for same ailment, but she had since been discharged.
