Top Chicago OBGYN and until recently, Chairman of LUTH management board Dr. Nurudeen Olowopopo is dead. According to reports from Lagos, he died at his home in Ikeja, Lagos.
Dr. Olowopopo was an active member of the Eko Club International USA with whom he had embarked on a series of humanitarian medical missions. He had been at several times instrumental to the supply of free medical amenities to Lagos State in Nigeria.
He would be remembered by all as a very humble and unassuming gentleman. The Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola and other top Government officials had paid a condolence visit to the family. Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, former Governor of Lagos State and a close friend to the Olowopopo family has also received sympathisers on behalf of the family.
The management and staff of Trendy Africa hereby sympathise with the Olowopopo family.
