The leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has been thrown into confusion as the Lagos State House of Assembly lawmaker representing Mushin Constituency II, Sobur Olayiwola Olawale, slumped and died after attending Ahmed Bola Tinubu’s presidential campaign kick-off in Jos, Plateau State on Tuesday November 15, 2022.
Olawale, popularly known as “Omititi” was said to have slumped and died at the Rawang Pam Township Stadium in Jos.

A source in the Lagos State Assembly confirmed the development to TheCable, adding that it was not clear what could have caused the death of the lawmaker.
“It is true that he died, but you will understand that at this moment, I can’t put out a report to announce the death of a very good friend,” the source said.
“He slumped and died. We both travelled to Jos and it’s sad to not come back with him to Lagos,” he added.
The lawmaker, who was the chairman, House Committee on Local Government, was born in 1964.
He is survived by a wife and three children.
The Lagos State House of Assembly is yet to issue a statement on his demise.
