I’m Still Alive, Not Dead, Olunloyo Breaks Silence

Contrary to the rumour that he has died, Elder statesman and former Governor of old Oyo State, Dr Omololu Olunloyo on Friday broke his silence, saying he is alive.

Reliable sources within the Olunloyo family in his Molete, Ibadan residence, Oyo State capital said he was hale and hearty.

Speaking in a statement obtained by CityMirrorNews, the renowned Mathematician said, “I’m still here, not yet gone”, while expressing worry over the rumour, asking who would live forever.

“Those breaking death news and the person presumed dead will all die one day. I’ve been lucky. My father died at 42, while my mother died at 102. I’m 89. I’ve crossed the expected life age”, he said.

The elder statesman also illustrated how the rumour of his death hit several news platforms on June 7, 2022, noting that the rumour mongers claimed that he died at the University College Hospital, (UCH), Ibadan.

A few days later then, the family issued a statement, declaring that he was not dead but suffering from old age ailment and asked Nigerians to pray for him to survive the health complications.
