It is no longer news that some Nigerian dignitaries visited United Kingdom, for the birthday party of the retired jurist at London Hilton Hotel on Park Lane, Mayfair, London, in celebration of the 80th birthday party of Nigeria’s High Commissioner to Britain and retired Supreme Court Judge, Ambassador George Adesola Oguntade.
His celebration coincided with the outbreak of the deadly Coronavirus in United Kingdom, typical of Nigerians that love parties, the sit at home ordered by the British government did not deter Nigerian Creme de la Creme, very important personalities to storm the city of London while many Londoners were avoiding large gatherings.
As expected, in attendance were his billionaire friends ditto: billionaire industrialist, Aare Razak Okoya, who also turned 80 couple of months back, and his delectable wife, Folashade, bet magnate and Odole Oodua, Sir Kessington Adebutu and his wife, property magnate, Sir Olu Okeowo and his wife.

However the deadly Coronavirus dealt a mortal blow, killing one of the guests that attended the high octane shindig. Mr Rotimi Adigun died later from complications resulting from Coronavirus.
See his picture below:
A reliable source who is very close to the deceased has this to say:
“I can confirm that Brother Rotimi is my senior brother’s friend. He died on Monday. He contacted Coronavirus at the 80th birthday party of the Nigerian high commissioner to the UK. The irresponsible Nigerian officials flouted UK rules about social distancing. Now they couldn’t provide the UK government with details of all attendees. A few are in ICU already sadly”.
May the soul of the deceased rest in perfect peace, Amen
