Former Lagos State Governor and national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is bereaved. He lost his first son, Babajide to the cold hands of death.
Kemiashefonlovehaven gathered that Jide, as he was fondly called, died after a brief illness, in the wee hours of today, November 1, 2017.
Among all of Asiwaju Tinubu’s children, Jide was the only one who shared an uncanny resemblance with him.
Numerous messages of sympathy have been flooding in since the tragic event occurred.
Late Jide is a law graduate of the University of Liverpool, England. He obtained a Masters degree in Maritime Law from the University of London and was called to the Nigerian Bar in 1999.

Prior to this, he had brief stints with Cargo Maritime, Paris, France, a firm of shipbrokers that specialize in petroleum product tankers, and Ocean and Oil Services Ltd.
Jide Tinubu has since been buried in Lagos.
He is survived by two children.
May his gentle soul rest in peace
