At the time of this report, close members of his family are yet to confirm his death.
Recall that over a week ago, there were rumours that the ex-Governor had died after testing positive to Coronavirus and was reported to be in a critical condition before the time of his death.This was debunked by members of his family and media aide, Bolajii Tunji who insisted he was still alive.
