Naija News gathered that the Ekiti State-born broadcaster died in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

Confirming the death of Olasope, a former Secretary-General, Efon Development League, Prince Adeyemi Adejoju said the late “Olohun Iyo of Africa served Ekiti and Nigeria to the best of his abilities while he lived. He was indeed a great ambassador on many fronts.

“May the Lord console all, his nuclear and extended families as well as the Ekiti West Diocese of Anglican Communion and Efon Alaaye community at large.”

Olasope was Chief Press Secretary to the then Ogun State Governor Olabisi Onabanjo between 1979 and 2003.

He was also the Chairman of Ekiti State Broadcasting Service under former Governor Adeniyi Adebayo.
