Hon. Hakeem Sokunle, member representing Oshodi/Isolo constituency I has refuted claims that he revealed the cause of death of his colleague Hon Tunde Braimoh, stating expressly contrary to the reports credited to a media organisation, he never confirmed that COVID-19 killed him.
The lawmaker who is shocked about the development, stated that he felt it is important he counters the attribution made about him in the said story because it did not reflect the truth about what transpired.
He said:”I was at Infectious Disease Hospital at Yaba earlier today to verify the claim of Hon Tunde Braimoh’s demise, he having been there several days back.

Family, friends and associates paying last respect to Buraimoh

“At that particular time his constituents and relatives were already there to pick up his corpse but the Doctor at IDH did not oblige them the request.

“That was how I got the news and at no time did I speak with the any media correspondent about the matter, it is still a rude shock to me that a colleague pass on and I could not even pick my calls”. Sokunle added.
The journalist report that he made effort to visit the IDH earlier today but was not allowed entrance into the  isolation centres, but Hon Sokunle who saw him afar suggested that they should let him stay and watch from a distance.
His body has since been laid to rest at Ikoyi cemetry today.

The family and political associates of the late Senator representing Lagos East Senatorial District in the Senate, Senator Sikiru Adebayo Osinowo, have debunked comments credited to a member of the Lagos State House of Assembly on the cause of the death of Hon Olatunde Braimoh.

Honourable Hakeem Sokunle, Chairman of the House Committee on Health, had told the media that the late Braimoh died as a result of complications resulting from Covid-19 because he had contacts with the Late Senator Osinowo.

But reacting through the Media Office of the late Senator, family members and associates described the statement as reckless saying linking the death of the lawmaker to their patriarch is uncalled for.

“We are mortals and everybody has his or her appointed time. For our father and brother, their time has come, we can’t query Almighty Allah. So it’s shocking to say the late Braimoh contracted Covid-19 from our dear father,” the statement said.

According to the statement from Osinowo’s Media Office, many family members and associates have closer contact with the late Senator in his last moments and have no symptoms of the disease.

“Allah is the Creator of every being on earth and He takes the life of His creations anytime He wishes to do so. It is His wish that Senator Osinowo should die on Monday, 15 June, 2020 and it is equally His wish that Hon Braimoh should die on Friday, 7 July, 2020. We cannot question Him,” the statement concluded
