The lawmaker died in the early hours of Friday, July 10th, 2020 after a brief ailment suspected to be Covid-19 complications.
A family source disclosed that; “He told his aides that he wasn’t feeling well. It’s not even up to a week. But we still don’t know if it’s coronavirus.”
However, his colleagues who expressed shock on his sudden death, said; “It is true; I could not sleep since 1.00am, when I learned about his demise. He is one of those who never toyed with his health matters.”
“Highly cautious, he will always maintain strict adherence to all medical counsels from the appropriate quarters, as it concerns the prevention of this COVID-19 scourge. He would be sorely missed. He was such a fine breed, whose impact will ever remain a point of reference.”
“Braimoh died of COVID-19 and he might have contracted it from late Senator Bayo Osinowo, with whom he was a close friend. We have been battling it for a while now before his sudden demise. It is so sad we eventually lost him.”
“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.”
Before his demise, Tunde Braimoh was a member of the Lagos State House of Assembly, representing Kosofe Constituency II. He was the House Committee Chairmanon on Information, Security and Strategy. He equally served as Chairman, Committee on Judiciary, Petitions and LASEIC.
