“Ajiroba” meaning, First to see Tinubu in the morning as he was fondly called was the most trusted aide of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, insiders confirmed.
He was sick briefly and hospitalized. He had high blood pressure and diabetes. He died in early hours of Friday, the source said.

Alhaji Lati! So very painful when I heard about his demise early this morning.A very trusted aide of Tinubu. The one Asiwaju would call and say: Lati, go and buy bread and Akara for me. Tinubu likes bread and akara too much.He was picked up by DSS during Obasanjo administration when Asiwaju too was a governor in Lagos, they were looking for some documents and money then to nail Tinubu, Alhaji Lati was whisked away and tortured for some days, his house was ransacked thoroughly, before he was released.Tinubu further liked him because he didn’t release any information to those guys that picked him up. Since then he had developed some health challenges he was managing till his death.I knew him very well. He’s from Ilaro, Ogun state but not many people know that his mother was an Hausa woman.Very painful.So very loyal to Tinubu. Only one that kept Tinubu glass cup whenever they went to social party.From: Ayo Ojeniyi.
RIP Lati Raheem.
