The great people of Kwara state have lost an icon.
Retired Brig-General David Bamigboye lost his battle to stroke disease today at the age of 78.
Although the cause of his death was not revealed in public, a close family source who broke the news on Facebook moments ago said Bamigboye died of stroke.
He was the first military governor of Kwara state.
