A member of the Lagos state House of Assembly representing Kosofe Constituency II, Hon. Tunde Buraimoh has been declared dead.
His colleague, Honourable Sanni Ganeey Okanlawon from Kosofe Constituency 1, broke the news via social media.
The late lawmaker is said to have died few weeks before his 60th birthday.
He had also served in the parliament as the chairman house committee on judiciary, petitions and LASIEC.
Buraimoh was also a former Kosofe local government chairman from 1999 to 2002 and has been a member of the Lagos state House of Assembly since 2015.
A popular lawmaker, he is fondly called 'Big Daddy' by his supporters and admirers.
The cause of his death is still unknown as at the time of this report.
Buraimoh's death comes almost a month after his former colleague in the Lagos state House of Assembly, Senator Adebayo Osinowo died at 64.
Interestingly, both lawmakers are from the same area in Lagos.
Like Osinowo, Buraimoh was an active federal lawmaker on the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
Before he became a senator, late Osinowo was a member of the Lagos state House of Assembly for four consecutive terms (2003-2019).
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos state eulogised Osinowo, saying the late politician lived an exemplary life.
"He has lived a fulfilled man, a respected Nigerian, a respected husband and father.
''How do we want to be remembered, when we are gone. If we missed him, we must learn something from him. Let us know that our time will come and what will people say about us," Sanwo-Olu said.
