The lawmaker representing Kosofe Constituency II at the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mr. Tunde Braimoh, is dead.
Mr. Victor Akande, representing Ojo Constituency I, confirmed his demise to the press agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Lagos. Akande noted that his death was shocking because the late Braimoh was always cautious of his health status.
He said: “We indeed lost Tunde Braimoh, I couldn’t sleep since 1 a.m. when I learned about his demise, he’s one among those that never toyed with his health matters.
“Highly cautious and can always maintain strict adherence to all medical counsels from the acceptable quarters because it concerns the prevention of this spread of COVID-19 scourge.
“He would be sorely missed, he was such a fine breed whose impact will ever remain some extent of reference.”
Also, Hakeem Sokunle, Chairman, House Committee on Health, said that the late Braimoh may need to die of COVID-19 and it had been possible he had contracted it from late Sen. Bayo Osinowo with whom he was a close confidant.
“We are battling it for a short time now before his sudden demise. it’s so sad we eventually lost him.
“It is assumed he may have likely contracted the virus from late Pepperito with whom you’re much aware he was an in-depth confidant, it’s confirmed he died of COVID-19,” he said.
The deceased, until his overtime, was the Chairman, House Committee on Information, Security, and Strategy who made copious contributions to state developmental policy debate on the ground of the house.
