Tunde Braimoh, a Lawmaker, representing Kosofe Constituency 2 at the Lagos State House of Assembly is dead.
This came barely one month after Bayo Osinowo, a fellow Lawmaker was confirmed dead after contracting COVID-19 virus.
The cause of the death of his death is yet to be known, as an official statement from the House is yet to be in the public domain.
The deceased Braimoh until his sudden demise was the House Committee Chairman on Information, Security and Strategy and had contributed to state developmental policy.
Confirming the development, Mr Victor Akande who represents Ojo constituency 1, told iBrandTV that late Braimoh was a very cautious individual whose loss made him sleepless.
In his words: “It is true, I could not sleep since 1 am when I learnt about his demise, he is one of those who never toyed with his health matters.

“Highly cautious and will always maintain strict adherence to all medical counsels from the appropriate quarters as it concerns prevention of this spread of COVID-19 scourge.
“He would be sorely missed, he was such a fine breed whose impact will ever remain a point of reference.”
Also, Mr. Hakeem Sokunle the House Health Committee Chairman stated that the late Braimoh died of COVID-19 also and might have contracted it from late Senator Bayo Osinowo with whom he was a close confidant.
“We have been battling it for a while now before his sudden demise. It is so sad we eventually lost him.
“It is assumed he may have likely contracted the virus from late Pepperito with whom you are much aware he was a close confidant, it is confirmed he died of COVID-19,” Sokunle noted.
