Last month,  Senator Bayo Osinowo, who had also represented Kosofe 1 constituency  in the House of Assembly  died of coronavirus complications.

After Osinowo’s death, Braimoh, waxed poetic about life and death:
Life is a conundrum
A mirage and a puzzle
A concomitance of the strange and the mysterious
Sometimes comes with so much joy
Sometimes with so much sadness
What a world of absurdity ?
A world of vanity !
But in all, we remain thankful.
May God have mercy on us
Halt the torrents of sadness
And grant us enduring joy.
