A member of House of Representatives representing Ifako Ijaiye Federal Constituency in Lagos State, Hon. Elijah Adewale, yesterday slumped and died in Abuja.

The lawmaker was found dead in his Abuja home. He was said to be the only person living in the apartment.

Aged 65, Adewale was said to have attended the caucus meeting of the House on Wednesday night.

Adewale’s death shocked members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja. It was gathered that he never showed any sign of illness and weakness before his passage yesterday.
