Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and his personal aides were on Saturday tested for the coronavirus following the death of his chief security officer (CSO).
Lateef Raheem, 51, died in the early hours of Friday after falling ill on Monday, but he had a history of high blood pressure and diabetes.
According to the exclusive report by TheCable.ng, Tinubu and some of his very close aides took the test on Saturday, April 25 as a precaution following the death of one of the politician’s aides just over a day ago.
Results are expected on Monday, sources said.
In a tribute, Tinubu praised the late police officer who had been with him before he became governor of Lagos state in 1999.
“Lateef reported for work on Monday. Feeling a bit under the weather, he went home to rest. We spoke on Wednesday by phone. He was in fine spirits and was looking forward to resuming work,” he wrote.
“I felt nothing but profound shock, and then the emptiness of deep loss when I was awakened early Friday that my most trusted security aide had died and that I would never see him again. I did not know the Wednesday conversation would be our last. The pain of his loss is acute.”
