The Accord Party candidate for Atisbo/Saki West/Saki East Federal Constituency of Oyo State in the forthcoming 2023 general election, Jacob Funmi Ogunmola, popularly called JFO, is dead.
According to reports, Ogunmola died on Sunday, December 4, 2022, a few hours after attending a function in Saki.
The late politician was the caretaker chairman of Atisbo Local Government under the late Governor Abiola Ajimobi.
A source close to late Ogunmola said he was being moved to Lagos, his base, from Saki, when he breathed his last.
