The South West Zonal Vice Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Olasoji Adagunodo is dead.
Adagunodo, it was learnt, died on Tuesday after a brief illness in the United States of America.
Close sources to Adagunodo, who was a former Osun State PDP Chairman, revealed that he travelled to the US shortly after the general elections for a routine medical checkup but he did not come back.
“He died this afternoon. We were called from the United States that he has died. He travelled to the US shortly after the general elections for a routine medical checkup”, the source said.
Adagunodo hailed from Obokun local government area of Osun State and he was once a member of the Osun State House of Assembly.
Adagunodo before his death had a running supremacy battle with Sunday Bisi, the current Osun PDP Chairman.
Due to the battle, the party in the state suffered from one electoral misfortune to the other.
It was believed that in an effort to settle the rift between both Osun PDP leaders, Adagunodo was elevated to the office of the Southwest PDP Zonal Vice Chairman.
