By Kayode Ogundare:
Erstwhile Lagos State Sports Commission chairman and journalist Deji Tinubu is dead. He reportedly slumped and passed away at a novelty football match in Lagos on Thursday evening.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of former Executive Committee member of the NFF, Mr. Deji Tinubu following his sudden demise last night. We are still in shock as we pray for the repose of his soul. #RIPDejiTinubu pic.twitter.com/b42LMrPu68Want more Online SALES? apply the *Social Pipeline Marketing Strategy* and watch your account balance skyrocket.

Really shocked to hear about the passing of Deji Tinubu, he blessed morning radio with his knowledge of football. I cannot believe he has gone just like that, such cruel fate. Our condolences to his family and friends.
