Lagos State Governor Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Thursday paid a condolence visit to the family of the late former Military Administrator of the State, Brigadier Mobolaji Johnson (Rtd), who passed away on Wednesday evening.

At exactly 6:19pm, a high-powered delegation led by Sanwo-Olu was received by family members at the deceased’s residence in Ilupeju.

The governor was received by two elderly women – Mrs. Shola Agaga-Williams and Mrs. Biola Agaga-Williams – both said to be cousins to the late wife of the deceased.

At separate occasions, Governor Sanwo-Olu spoke to Seyi and Deji, two sons of the deceased on telephone to sympathise with the family.

There were other extended family members of the deceased at the late Johnson’s residence when the Governor visited.

In his tribute to the late Johnson, Sanwo-Olu described the former Military Administrator as “perfect officer and gentleman personified”.

The Governor wrote in the condolence register: “Papa served Lagos State diligently and conscientiously, laying a solid foundation that our dear State is thriving on. Lagosians remain indebted to Papa. His legacies outlive him. May his gentle soul rest in peace.”

Sanwo-Olu spent about 40 minutes in the living room of the late former Lagos Military Administrator, condoling the deceased’s family members.
