SECOND  Republic Politician, Dr Tunji Braithwaite is dead. He died yesterday, aged 82 after a brief illness. His son, Olumide, said the legal icon and activist politician fell ill in the early hours of yesterday and was rushed to St Nicholas Hospital where he died at 5.55 am.

Family sources said that  Dr Braithwaite fell from a thread mill a few weeks ago and had been ill since then. The illness was said to have worsened yesterday morning when he had breathing problems prompting his being rushed to the hospital, the source added. Olumide, who is yet to reconcile himself with the fact that his dad is no more said the family was sad about the death of his father but they are also happy about what he stood for while he was alive.
