Wale Bob Oseni With His Lovely Family

On November 1, 2021, real estate guru, Wale Bob-Oseni, detoured from his trip to the airport, into the eternal dark.

That Bob-Oseni got crushed to death in the 21-storey rubble of his friend, Femi Osibona’s high rise building is public knowledge.

But very few people know that he suffered such grisly death at the prime of his life. Just at the cusp of 50.

He probably went quietly or in excruciating pain. Whatever the manner of his departure, the real estate guru went poorly into the deep, dark rubble of his friend, late Osibona’s 360 Degrees Towers’ 21-storey contraption. Unlike many a departed soul of his stature, he did not receive a grand burial.

The Executive Director of the African Bureau for Legislative Empowerment is yet to be interred six feet under the earth hence he probably wanders dissatisfied, like a tormented wraith seeking peace in unlikely places. Nobody knows the actual fate of the real estate magnate at the time of his death. Nobody knows either what final thoughts flashed through his mind. Did he rue his sad, sudden end? Did he regret, knowing his planned 50th birthday would eventually pass as his funeral?

Did he wish that his body and spirit escaped the cold catastrophe of the 21-storey rubble?

On his way to the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA), en route to the US, Bob-Oseni reportedly stopped by at Osibona’s Ikoyi building site at the latter’s behest.

The real estate dealer and executive director of the African Bureau for Legislative Empowerment, was on his way to the US on Monday when he got a call from Osibona, owner of Fourscore Homes, to check out the ongoing development at Gerard Road, Ikoyi, Lagos state.

Alas, the building collapsed with Bob-Oseni and Osibona inside, and they are now dead after their bodies were recovered from the site .

In a video that went viral some minutes after the collapse, a man believed to be Bob-Oseni’s driver was seen crying, saying he was to take his boss to the Lagos airport.

“He was heading to America. I want to go and drop him in the airport,” the driver said in tears.

Bob-Oseni is also the corporate affairs manager of the First Premiere Mortgage, according to his profile on LinkedIn, which also states that he had a master’s in international relations and diplomacy from the Howard university in the US.

As his death continues to elicit gasps of despair among Lagos’ high society, friends and family of the deceased in the US rue his sad end at the cusp of grand preparations for his birthday celebration.
