Ex Lagos governor, Mobolaji Johnson is dead

Late Mobolaji Johnson

The death of the first military governor of Lagos State, Brig-Gen. Mobolaji Olufunso Johnson, has been broken.

His son, Deji, confirmed that the retired soldier passed on few hours ago.

The late Johnson was appointed as the military Administrator by the military Head of State, Major Gen. Thomas Aguiyi-Ironsi, and later, governor of Lagos State by his successor, Gen. Yakubu Gowon.

He served in that capacity between 1966 and 1975 when he was compulsory retired by former Head of State, Gen. Murtala Mohammed.

However, he and the military governor of Western State were separated from the pack of colleagues who were indicted for corruption.
