Ajimobi died on Thursday at age 70.
Giving details of the ex-governor’s death in his tweets today, Lagos Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, said the multiple organ failure was caused by complications from COVID-19.
It was reported that Ajimobi later tested negative for COVID-19 but the illness had caused his health to deteriorate.
