A member of the House of Representatives, representing Irepodun Isin Ekiti Oke Ero constituency of Kwara State, Hon. Funke Adedoyin has been reported dead.
It was gathered that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmaker died outside during treatment of an ailment suspected to be cancer.
The death, which reportedly occurred on Friday, was not yet announced by the family as it was being kept away from her aged father.
A source close to the family said that the deceased had a cancer operation about two years ago, while she had been in and out of the country for medical attention since then.
The source, who said a call was put across to the deceased last week, added that he suspected something was missing when she did not pick or return the call.
The late lawmaker, before her death, was also aspiring to return to the National Assembly in the 2019 general elections.
