Mr Abayomi Ayeola is dead. He was member of the House of Representatives representing Ibeju Lekki Federal Constituency of Lagos State.
Ayeola reportedly died at St. Nicholas Hospital in Lagos on Sunday after a brief illness.
The two-term lawmaker had clinched the ticket of the All Progressives Congress to contest for a third term in the 2019 general elections before his demise on Sunday.
Sources said he had been battling the illness since he bagged the APC ticket to contest for another term in the House on February 16, 2018.
Until his death, he was the leader of the Lagos State caucus in the House.
