“He had been sick for a while, since the summer of last year. He was in a hospital in the UK. I went there to see him before he was later transferred to Germany,” Mr Gbajabiamila said.
“When I visited him in the UK, he narrated how he travelled to the UK, what happened during the flight -it was pathetic.”
