Babatunde Oke, chairman of Onigbongbo local council development area (LCDA) of Lagos state, is dead.
Oke died of COVID-19 complications on Wednesday.
Oke, who was serving his second term as the council chairman, was said to have been sick for some time but recovered before the Sallah break.
He relapsed after the celebrations and was taken hospital where he died.
Oke’s death comes two months after Augustine Arogundade, chairman of Agbado/Oke-Odo LCDA, died.
Arogundade was said to have also died of COVID-19 complications on June 2, sparking fear in the LCDA.
The news of his death came a few days after Tawakalitu Ayilara, secretary to the local government, died after a brief illness.
Her death had fueled the speculation of COVID-19 infections at the council secretariat.
As of August 12, Lagos has recorded 16,074 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 200 deaths, the highest in the country.
