Sobur Olawale, a member of the Lagos state house of assembly, has died after attending the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign flag-off in Jos, Plateau State on Tuesday.
Olawale who is the chairman, house committee on local government, was said to have slumped and died on Tuesday after attending the presidential campaign flag-off in Jos.
A source in the Lagos assembly confirmed the development, adding that it is not clear what could have caused the death of the lawmaker.
“It is true that he died, but you will understand that at this moment, I can’t put out a report to announce the death of a very good friend,” the source said.
“He slumped and died. We both travelled to Jos and it’s sad to not come back with him to Lagos.”
