Sombre and grief striken  residents of Ibadan, Oyo State capital, in their hundreds, surged into Oluyole  residence of former Governor Abiola Ajimobi, to mourn his death  on Thursday.

The tearful people who could not wait for the death of Ajimobi to be formally announced, said that  the news had filtered earlier in the morning and had come to verify the death report about the All Progressive Congress (APC) chieftain.

The early sympathizers include party loyalists, including former Commissioner for Lands and Housing, Mr Isaac Omodewu; Chairman, Ibadan Southwest Local Government Mr Bolaji Adeleke and members of the women wing of the party among others.

Senator Abiola Isiaka Ajimobi lost the battle to death today.  He died at the age of 70. Earlier on June 18, rumoured news of his death went viral until his aide and a family member separately refuted it at the time.

The Daily Crucible recalls that Ajimobi slipped into coma in a Lagos hospital.

Senator Ajimobi, who took ill in May this year was evacuated to the First Cardiology Hospital Lagos, for special care after he was diagnosed of the novel coronavirus disease.

The ex - Governor who was diagnosed of the dreadful disease barely three weeks ago,  slipped into unconsciousness on June 8.

Doctors  were battling  to revive him until his death today of complications arising from Coronavirus infection. 

The highbrow hospital is one of the selected few private health facilities in the Centre of Excellence permitted to treat special COVID - 19 patients.

It is the hospital where the former chief of staff to President Buhari, Mallam Abba Kyari, was treated of coronavirus before he died.

It is also where the Senator representing Lagos East, Bayo Osinowo, was being treated of an undisclosed brief ailment before he lost the battle to the cold hand of death on Monday, this week. 

When the former governor’s health deteriorated after he suffered  cardiac arrest the first time and was placed on a ventilator at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) immediately, doctors attending to him were said to have recommended a particular drug for his treatment.

 But the drug could not be found in Nigeria, according to sources; hence, a private jet was reportedly deployed to purchase the drug in London.

 Ajimobi is said to be a diabetic patient, and coronavirus a challenge for people with diabetes. He suddenly took ill in Abuja late May 2020 allegedly after attending one of the political meetings with his party chieftains.
