The National Chairman of the All progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and a retinue of his personal aides have undergone tests for the deadly COVID-19 virus following the death of Mr Lateef Raheem, his chief security officer, CSO.
Raheem, 51, who had a history of Diabetes and High blood pressure, died on Friday after his health deteriorated last Monday. It was gathered that samples for the deceased were taken shortly after his death for a COVID-19 test.
On Saturday, ‘Jagaban’ and his aides also submitted their samples for the test. Results are expected to be out on Monday. Speaking on the death of his CSO, the popular Lagos politician expressed profound sadness adding that it came as a ‘shock’.
“I felt nothing but profound shock, and then the emptiness of deep loss when I was awakened early Friday that my most trusted security aide had died and that I would never see him again.”
“I did not know the Wednesday conversation would be our last. The pain of his loss is acute,” he stated.
Raheem was an Assistant Superintendent of Police, ASP before his demise.
