He reportedly drove himself to Hon George Alabi’s house to pay homage after which he returned home but died few minutes later.
Effort was made to take him to hospital but he was confirmed dead on arrival.
Hon Raheem Issa Sofoluwe was sworn in a few months ago as the Ejigbo local government caretaker committee chairman by the executive governor of Osun state senator Ademola Adeleke.
Just last year before he emerged as local government caretaker committee chairman, he survived a very terrible motor accident where a life was lost but, his life was saved after spending months in hospital living on oxygen at a teaching hospital in Ilorin, Kwara state.
Alhaji Raheem Issa Sofoluwe was a good party man and a cheerful giver during his lifetime.
He was age 48 years. He has since been buried according to Islamic rites. May Allah comfort the bereaved family.
