Wale Azeez, the personal assistant to the slain former member of the House of Representatives, representing Lagelu Federal Constituency, Temitope Olatoye, from Oyo State, is dead.

A few months after Temitope, better known as Sugar, was shot dead in Lalupon area of Ibadan, one of his close aides, Azeez, died yesterday in Ibadan.

The deceased, who was part of the burial proceedings of his late boss earlier this month, was last week Wednesday knocked down by a bullion van.

Recounting the ordeal, an eyewitness said the driver of the bullion van was driving against traffic on a one way road around the Iwo Road area of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, Wednesday last week when his vehicle knocked Mr Azeez down.

He was later rushed to the University College Hospital, UCH, Ibadan, where he died on Thursday a few days after the accident.

Until his death, the 47-year-old worked with the late lawmaker as a legislative aide in 2011 when he was a member of Oyo State Assembly.
