There was anxiety in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital on Saturday night over the health of a former leader of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW)  Alh. Lateef Akinsola (aka Tokyo).

Akinsola was reported to have died earlier in the day with sympathisers trooping to his Akobo, Ibadan house for condolence.

But one of his sons, whose name could not be confirmed, told The Reporter that the report was untrue.

Instead of giving details of his father’s situation, he sent a video recorded by ace Fuji star King Wasiu Ayinde to our reporter.

The Fuji super star debunked the report as unfounded in a solo praise of Akinsola, who is one of his famous fans in Ibadan.

Officials of the union in the state were unavailable for comments.

A source with knowledge of Tokyo’s Akobo community, however, disclosed that the former union leader was dead, insisting that mourners thronged his house in the evening.
