An Ibadan-based radio presenter popularly known as Baba Bintin has been reported to have slumped and died while trekking to work on Saturday, March 11.
Baba Bintin’s death was announced during a radio programme by the Fresh FM Nigeria on Saturday.
It was gathered that the presenter died on his way to the Fresh FM station where he had a programme with Komolafe Olaiya and Olalomi Amole at Ayefele Music House, Challenge, Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
A radio presenter at the station, Mayor Isaac Brown, revealed that the late presenter died while trekking from Amuloko to Challenge on Saturday morning with the hope of getting a point-of-sale (POS) agent to get cash.
“I’m finding it very difficult to believe this story that is breaking here,” Brown said on the radio station.
He added, “He (Baba Bintin) left his home like we all did this morning to come into this station to do our daily job and contribute our quota to national development, to the job like we love to do, and I’m being told that the man just slumped this morning and he died while getting ready to come here.”
Until his death, Baba Bintin was a comic presenter on the Oyin Ado programme on Saturdays on the radio station where he usually released information on market opening days in the state and across the country.
