Tunde Braimoh, the state legislator representing Kosofe constituency II at the Lagos State House of Assembly, is dead.

Mr Braimoh, was until his death, was the Chairman, House Committee on Information, Security and Strategy.

Hakeem Sokunle, Chairman, House Committee on Health, confirmed Mr Braimoh’s demise to the News Agency of Nigeria on Friday in Lagos.

According to Sokunle, the late Braimoh might have contracted COVID-19 from Bayo Osinowo, lawmaker representing Lagos east senatorial district, who died on June 15, 2020.

“We have been battling it for a while now before his sudden demise. It is so sad we eventually lost him,” Sokunle said.

“It is assumed he may have likely contracted the virus from late Pepperito with whom you are much aware he was a close confidant. It is confirmed he died of COVID-19.”

Victor Akande, who represents Ojo constituency I, in the Lagos State House of Assembly said that news of Braimoh’s death was shocking.

“It is true that we lost Tunde Braimoh. I could not sleep since 1 AM when I learnt about his demise,” he said.

“He is one of those who never toyed with his health; highly cautious and will always maintain strict adherence to all medical counsel from the appropriate quarters as it concerns prevention of the spread of COVID-19 scourge.

“He would be sorely missed. He was such a fine breed whose impact will ever remain a point of reference.”
