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.
