Special Adviser to state Governor on Sports, Deji Tinubu is dead. Tinubu reportedly slumped while playing football Thursday afternoon and died by evening.
The cause of his death is still unclear but his friends have taken to the social media to rain tribute to the governor’s aide.
Expressing shock over the news of Tinubu’s death, Dele Momodu on Twitter wrote; “Good night DEJI TINUBU (5TH LEFT, EARLIER TODAY, BEFORE HIS SUDDEN DEATH)… Rest in Peace, dear Brother…”
“Another of his fan, Ayo Shonaiya tweets; “Twitter football banter will never be the same again for me. @dejitinubu Hurts so much to even tweet this. Always with a firm handshake, that smile and a guy hug. Rest in Peace brother. Great guy gone.”
Tinubu made his last tweet Wednesday at 12:58pm. The tweet was humorous.
