Coronavirus: Ex-Gov. Ajimobi Reportedly Slips into Coma


Immediate-past Oyo State Governor Isiaka Abiola Ajimobi is in coma, Global Excellence authoritatively reports.

Senator Ajimobi, who was moved to a Lagos based highbrow hospital, First Cardiologists Consultant, after he was diagnosed with the dreaded coronavirus pandemic about 17 days ago, sources said, slipped into unconsciousness on June 8 while doctors have since been battling to revive him.

First Cardiologists was the hospital where the former Chief of Staff to President Buhari, Mallam Abba Kyari, was treated of coronavirus before he died.

Inside sources informed Global Excellence 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.

But the drug could not be found in Nigeria, according to sources; hence, a private jet was reportedly deployed to purchase the drug in London.

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 Progressives Congress (APC), is said to be a diabetic patient, and coronavirus a challenge for people with diabetes and other severe ailments.

He suddenly took ill in late May 2020 allegedly after returning from a political meeting in Abuja with his party chieftains.
