The Chairman of Onigbongbo Local Council Development Area, Babatunde Oke, is dead.
His death was confirmed by his Chief Press Secretary, Akerele Ismail, on Wednesday.
Ismail said his boss died on Wednesday morning but could not give details.
“Yes, he (Oke) is dead. I cannot give you details now. I am in pain. Please, let us talk later,” he told The PUNCH on the telephone.
When asked if his boss died of coronavirus-related complications, Ismail replied, “no”.
Oke’s death came barely two months after the chairman of Agbado/Oke-Odo LCDA, Augustine Arogundade, died.
Arogundade was said to have died on June 2 of coronavirus-related complications.
Oke is serving his second term in the council.
