Lagos lawmaker collapses and dies after attending APC presidential campaign flag in Jos
The Legislator representing Mushin Constituency II in the Lagos State Legislative Assembly, Sobur Olayiwola Olawale, has died in Jos, Plateau State.
Olawale, popularly known as ‘Omititi’, is said to have crashed and died after the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign kicked off at Rawang Pam Township Stadium in Jos on Tuesday, November 15, 2022.
Speaking to TheCable, a Lagos Assembly source confirmed the development, adding that it is unclear what could have caused the lawmaker’s death.
“It is true that he is dead, but you will understand that at this time I cannot report the death of a very good friend,” the source said.
“He collapsed and died. We both traveled to Jos and it’s sad not to be back with him in Lagos,” he added.
The lawmaker, who was the chairman of the House Committee on Local Government, was born in 1964.
He is survived by a wife and three children.
The Lagos State Legislative Assembly has yet to issue a statement on his disappearance.
