@OurFavOnlineDoc Dr. Olufunmilayo wrote:” A young medical doctor@ehival has died from Covid19. This is very sad and heartbreaking.
I just checked his page again now. He even used RIP Jimoh and #EndSARS as a profile name.
He believed in Nigeria. He wanted a better country. Today he is gone.
May God comfort his family.”
”So, we lost a friend to COVID-19, a doctor who’s humble to the core. He attended to the wounded people at the Lekki protest few weeks ago. He was a cheerful and an easy going friend. We were even praying for his safety not knowing this would happen. Please pray for him”
