A former director in the Ministry of Finance, Mr Emmanuel Ayodele, has reportedly died after he slumped at a club in Abuja, where he had allegedly gone to unwind.

It was gathered that immediately Mr Ayodele, a retiree, went to the ground, he was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead by the doctor.

According to Northern City News, the 65-year-old man had gone to meet his friends at Amity Club in the Garki area of Abuja.

He reportedly showed no signs of illness before the incident, which was why it was a huge shock to his friends and family members, who are yet to believe their eyes.

“He was about entering the club when he slumped and was rushed to the hospital but unfortunately, he died. We shall miss him,” the Assistant Secretary-General of Amity Club, Mr Kazeem Idowu, was quoted as telling Northern City News.

The deceased was described as an easy going man who loved his family and friends.
