How Tinubu’s Son, Jide Tinubu Died
Facts emerged early this morning that Jide Tinubu, son of the former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu died of heart attack.
A family source who preferred anonymity said that the lawyer son slumped and was quickly rushed to the Lagos Island Hospital but was declared dead on arrival.
Jide died on Monday while his father the national leader of the All Progressives Congress was at the party’s caucus meeting in Abuja.
An investigation revealed that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu could not wait to the end of the meeting when he received a call that the son slumped.
However, the source said that he was not told that the son had died when he arrived Lagos until Wednesday.
“We were asked to keep the bad news away from him and members of the press,” the family source stated.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari had sent a condolence message to Tinubu’s family as he prayed that God grants them the fortitude to bear the loss.
Also, the Ondo State Governor, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu had condoled with the Tinubu’s family.
Some of the personalities that were seen at the Tinubu residence early Thursday included the former Governor of Osun State, Chief Bisi Akande, his successor Mr Rauf Aregbesola who had come to pay a condolence visit.
