Abiola Ajimobi, governor of Oyo state has commiserated with a former governor of the state, Senator Rashidi Ladoja, over the death of his son, Adebola.
IBPulse.com reported that Adebola died in an auto crash which occurred on Eko Bridge in Lagos on Thursday.
The governor, in a statement issued in Ibadan on Friday by his Special Adviser on Media, Dr Festus Adedayo, described the death of the former governor’s son as tragic, disheartening, unfortunate and sad.
“It is with deep shock and utter disbelief that I received the death of Adebola, son of my cousin and former Governor Rashidi Ladoja in a ghastly motor accident that occurred in Lagos on Thursday.
“It is even more painful considering the fact that Adebola was snatched by the cold hands of death in his prime,” he said, describing the deceased as a rising star and potential leader of tomorrow.
Governor Ajimobi admonished Senator Ladoja to take the incident as an act of God as nothing could happen to any human being without the knowledge of God.
While praying for the repose of the soul of the deceased, the governor prayed to God to grant the former governor and the entire Ladoja family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
