Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has lost his first son.
A source told TheCable that Jide, who was hale and hearty, died suddenly on Wednesday.
“He was not sick. As at last night, he was full of life. But we leave everything to God,” the source said.
Henry Ajomale, chairman of the APC, confirmed the tragic incident and appealed to members of the party to commiserate with Tinubu.
Details of the incident are still sketchy.
Little is known about Jide, who is being confused in news reports with another Jide Tinubu, younger brother of Wale Tinubu, the CEO of Oando Plc.
Wale’s brother is a maritime lawyer and promoter of TSL Limited.
