Shonekan’s Death: A Lie From The Pit Of Hell

Secretary to the Ogun State Government, Taiwo Adeoluwa, has described as a “lie from the pit of hell”, the reports that Ernest Shonekan, former head of Nigeria’s Interim National Government, is dead.

Adeoluwa debunked the rumour on Tuesday evening.

He said Ibikunle Amosun, governor of the state, has spoken with Shonekan who reportedly told the governor that he is hale and hearty.

Tributes have been pouring in for Shonekan on social media based on the reports.

Born on May 9, 1936, Shonekan is a British-trained lawyer and an industrialist.

He was appointed interim head of the country after ex-Military President Ibrahim Babangida stepped down on August 26, 1993.
