The Former Member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Alli Adebayo Balogun Sarumi has passed away in his sleep on Tuesday morning in Ibadan Oyo State.

He died at the age of 81.

According to the Islamic rites he has been buried at his residence Bashorun on Tuesday.

The daughter of the deceased Bolanle Sarumi-Aliyu confirmed the death of the politician.

It was recorded that he represented Ibadan North Federal Constituency between 1999 and 2003 on the platform of the Alliance for Democracy (AD).
