The Ogun State Government on Tuesday evening denied the rumored death of the former Head of Interim National Government, Chief Ernest Shonekan.
The rumored death of Shonekan filtered into Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, around 6 PM on Tuesday.
However, the Secretary to the Ogun State Government, Taiwo Adeoluwa, has dispelled the rumour through a telephone call to journalists.
He said, “It is a lie from hell. Baba is alive.”
Shonekan is a British-trained Nigerian lawyer, industrialist, and traditional chief.
He was appointed as interim president of Nigeria by General Ibrahim Babangida on 26th August, 1993.
