BREAKING! Lagos Senator Bayo Oshinowo aka Pepperito Dies - Western ...
Late Oshinowo “Pepper”

The lawmaker representing Lagos-East Senatorial District at the Senate, Adebayo Osinowo, aka Pepper, is dead. The man who famously cut short the tenure of veteran Senator Gbenga Ashafa, is no more. He died from the complications of the pandemic- covid 19 at First Cardiology Hospital, Lagos.

Some residents broke down in tears as they wondered who would fend for their families.

His widow was guarded into a black sports utility vehicle, as mourners were told to keep a safe distance from her. His remains would be moved from the hospital to Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, where he would be buried according to Islamic rites.

The Chairman, Ikosi-Isheri Local Council Development Area, Princess Samiat Bada, while addressing residents who besieged the deceased’s house, begged them to go home, saying COVID-19 is real.

She said, “I am begging you in the name of Allah, I am begging you in the name of God, no social distance here, leave and go home. Pray for him that God will repose his soul. Please go home.

“We will let you know the next programme. I will advise you not to come for the burial because COVID-19 is real. Please go home.”

Bola Ilori, an aide of former Osun State Governor and serving Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, in a post on Facebook, said Osinowo died of COVID-19.

“We lost another good soul to Corona! A leader and major pillar of support for the progressive family. He was my personal moral, political and financial supporter. Good night, Senator Bayo Osiniwo (Pepper),” he wrote.

The Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, in a statement on Monday, expressed shock at the death.

He said, “The death of Senator Bayo Osinowo is painful. He died at a time when we have just begun to consolidate on our successes and see a ray of hope in our fight against the COVID-19. We must not allow the death of Senator Osinowo to deter us from forging ahead in our quest to finding a lasting solution to the dreaded disease.”
