The Chairman of Onigbongbo Local Council Development Area of Lagos State, Mr Babatunde Oke, is dead due to COVID-19 complications.
Before his death, Oke was spending his second term as the council chairman and was a strong member of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Babatunde Oke died early Wednesday, 12 August, 2020 from complications arising from Coronavirus Infection.
Sources said that Oke, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been sick for sometime but recovered, only for the sickness to relapsed late last week due to the stress he went through during the last Sallah break where he was reported to have exposed himself again.
According to a post on his Facebook page, Oke died today at St. Nicholas Hospital on Lagos Island, where he was moved, when his illness became critical.
He did a lot of awareness on COVID-19 in the council during his lifetime, according to residents in the council.
He was the second council boss to die of COVID-19.
In June, Augustine Adeoye Arogundade, chairman of Agbado/Oke-Odo LCDA also succumbed to COVID-19.
