Some Twitter Users Wish Ajimobi Dead…. This Is Why


When the rumored death of former Oyo state governor filtered in, some users on Twitter were excited over the news.

This is coming from the eight-year rule of the All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain over some controversial issues in his second term; one of them was the LAUTECH school fees that gave him a nickname “Mr constituted authority” and the pension row. The other was the kingship controversy between him and the Alaafin of Oyo then, which is believed to have lead to the party losing the number one seat to the People Democratic Party (PDP) in the last general election.

The news was reported by some media organisations (Not AllNigerianinfo) and it was quickly denied by his aide and family members. Ajimobi is reportedly in a coma, due to coronavirus complication.
