Jide, first son of the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, reportedly slumped and died yesterday evening. Reports reaching NNN from a reliable source close to the former Lagos Governor revealed that Jide suddenly collapsed and died around 9 pm.
However, after the incidence, close family members rushed him down to an hospital on Lagos Island where he was confirmed dead on arrival. NNN reports that the tragic news was kept secret because Tinubu was in Abuja for the National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting of his party, APC.
Meanwhile, VIPs across the nation, mainly members of the APC, have taken to their social media pages to express their condolences.
Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, said via his verified Twitter handle, “I am left shell shocked by the news of the demise of Jide Tinubu. My thoughts and prayers are with our National leader @AsiwajuTinubu.”
“He was such a wonderful soul. Good Night, dear cousin,” said Hon. Adedamola Richard Kasunmu, who is currently representing Ikeja Constituency 2 at the Lagos State House of Assembly.
The senator representing Lagos East at the National Assembly, Gbenga Ashafa, tweeted, “My heart & prayers are with our leader Asiwaju @AsiwajuTinubu and his family at this time of grief. May the soul of Mr. Jide Tinubu R.I.P.”
