The lawmaker representing Kosofe Constituency 1 at the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mr Tunde Braimoh, is dead, officials reported.
The Chief Press Secretary to the Kosofe Local Government Chairman, Taiwo Fadipe, confirmed the death. He said Buraimoh died after a brief illness.Until his death, Mr Braimoh was an active member of the state’s parliament and the chairman of its committee on information.
Mr Braimoh was from the same senatorial district as a late senator, Bayo Osinowo, who represented Lagos East Senatorial District until his death in June.
Mr Osinowo had represented Kosofe Constituency 2 at the Lagos assembly for more than three terms until his election into the Senate in 2019, replacing Gbenga Ashafa.
According to one of his colleagues who does not want to be named since he has not been authorised to do so, Mr Braimoh was last seen in the chamber about two weeks ago, but he was, however, not officially reported sick.
