Immediate past Chairman of Lagos State Sports Commission, Deji Tinubu, is dead, reports said.

One of the reports, by THISDAY, said it was learnt last night that Tinubu, a former board member of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), slumped and died while playing football at the retreat organised in Epe for Lagos Commissioners and Special Advisers of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, who was present at the event.

“Although no official statement from Lagos State as at press time last night, his family and associates in sports circle confirmed his death,” THISDAY said.

It added that “Tinubu was certified healthy during the screening carried out before the start of the novelty game aimed at ensuring none of the government officials had such misfortune.”

Until his death Thursday, Tinubu was Gov Ambode’s special adviser on commerce. He was moved from sports to commerce during the cabinet shake up carried out just recently.
