Sokunle who is the Chairman, House Committee on Health noted that the deceased who was the Chairman, Lagos State House Committee on information, security and strategy died of the deadly virus.
The lawmaker further stated that Braimoh contracted the virus from late Senator Bayo Osinowo, his ally.
Sokunle said they had been battling Braimoh’s health “for a while before his sudden demise. It is so sad we eventually lost him”.
“It is assumed he may have likely contracted the virus from late Pepperito with whom you are much aware he was a close confidant. It is confirmed he died of COVID-19,” Sokunle stated.
Victor Akande, representing Ojo Constituency I, said the news was shocking because Braimoh was always careful.
Confirming the demise, he revealed: “I could not sleep since 1 a.m. when I learnt about his demise, he is one of those who never toyed with his health matters.”
He further stated that the deceased was always cautious and maintained strict adherence to all medical counsels on COVID-19.
Akande noted that his late Kosofe Constituency 11 member would be sorely missed.
“He was such a fine breed whose impact will ever remain a point of reference”, the legislator added.
