Immediate past Oyo State governor, Isiaka Abiola Ajimobi, is in coma, e-nigeria! authoritatively reports. Senator Ajimobi, who was moved to a Lagos based highbrow hospital, First Cardiologist, after he was diagnosed of the dreaded Covid-19 about 17 days ago, sources said, slipped into unconsciousness on June 8 while doctors have since been battling to revive him.
First Cardiologist was the hospital where the former chief of staff to President Buhari, Mallam Abba Kyari, was treated of coronavirus before he died.
Inside sources revealed that when the former governor’s health deteriorated after he suffered cardiac arrest the first time and was placed on a ventilator at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) immediately, doctors attending to him were said to have recommended a particular drug for his treatment.
Still, sources added, Senator Ajimobi’s condition would not improve and he had to be put on the second ventilator with the hope that he recovers. “Although, he is alive, he has been in coma since he was placed in the second ICU,” the source divulged.
Former Governor Ajimobi, who is the deputy national chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), is said to be a diabetic patient, and Covid-19 is a challenge for people with diabetes. He suddenly took ill in Abuja late May 2020 allegedly after attending one of the political meetings with his party chieftains.
This development is coming shortly after e-nigeria! reported the death of a Lagos East, Senator Bayo Osinowo -aka, Pepperoni who died of Covid-19 after being hospitalized at the Lagos First Cadiologist Hospital in Lagos Island.
Isiaka Abiola Ajimobi is a Nigerian politician from Oyo State, south-western Nigeria. He was formerly the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the National Oil and Chemical Marketing Company a subsidiary of Shell Petroleum, Nigeria.
