HOW AKEREDOLU DIED IN GERMAN HOSPITAL
More details have emerged about how the Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, died in a German hospital – an incident which has generated mixed reactions from across Nigeria.
The first report about Akeredolu’s death claimed that he died in Lagos. However, fresh details have revealed that Akeredolu died in a German hospital after he was rejected by another hospital he had been using.
A fresh update revealed that Akeredolu died in a German hospital where he was taken after being rejected by the one where he had been receiving treatment, the report said.
“The hospital he normally used in Germany rejected him and the doctors told the family to take him home to die because there was nothing else they could do to save him. The doctors reminded the family that they had already told them that he had a terminal illness. The doctors had decided that it was the end of the road for him. The family then took him to another hospital where he eventually died,” a top source explained.
The 67-year-old politician returned to Nigeria in September after a three-month medical leave in Germany and only recently proceeded on another one after he was directed by President Bola Tinubu to hand over power to his deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa.
Meanwhile, the Acting Governor of the state, Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa has officially been sworn in as the new Governor of Ondo State.Aiyedatiwa was sworn in on Wednesday by the state Chief Judge, Justice Olusegun Odusola, in Akure, the state capital.
