Awolowo’s Son, Oluwole Died In London

Awolowo’s Son, Oluwole Died In London
One of the children of the late Premier of the Old Western Region, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Oluwole, has passed on at an unknown hospital in the United Kingdom where he had gone for treatment few months ago.

Confirming the incidence to LEADERSHIP in a telephone interview, one of the children of the deceased, Mr. Babajide Awolowo, said, “My father died in London few hours ago.”

Family sources told our correspondent that the late Oluwole Awolowo had been bedridden for sometime now, owing to a ghastly motor accident he had sometime in 1992, which left him partially paralysed since then.

The source said his health deteriorated in the last few months prompting the family to move him to the unknown hospital abroad for proper medical attention, where he finally gave up the ghost on Wednesday night.

“Brother Wole had been in bed for sometime at his Ikenne home and he had been receiving treatment until the family realised that his health was fast failing. Unfortunately, he couldn’t make it back home,” the source, who is a first cousin to the deceased, said.

With the death of Oluwole, who was elected into the Lagos State House of Assembly in the Second Republic on the platform of his father’s party, Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN), the family has lost three of the children of the late politician.

He is survived by his mother, Chief Mrs. HID Awolowo, his wives and children.
