Former Chairman of Akure South Local Government of Ondo State and the lawmaker representing Akure South/North Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Adedayo Omolafe, is dead.

Sources said Omolafe, popularly known as Expensive, took ill on Sunday night and was rushed to the Federal Medical Centre in Owo, where he died in the early hours of Monday.

Omolafe was elected in 2019 under the platform of the PDP to represent the people of Akure north and south at the Lower chamber after several attempts by the late politician to secure the seat since he last served as the chairman of Akure South local government during the regime of the late Olusegun Agagu in 2009.

Expensive led a fierce legal battle as the chairman of ALGON in Ondo State against the unlawful removal of the 18 local government chairmen by the then newly sworn-in government of Dr Olusegun Mimiko after the appeal court sitting in Benin sacked the late Olusegun Agagu of PDP from office and Mimiko’s Labour party took over the reins of affairs in Ondo state.
