Rosemary Adebutu, the wife of Chief Kessington Adebutu, the Chairman of Premier Lotto, popularly known as Baba Ijebu is dead. 

The billionaire’s wife who was said to be of good health suddenly developed malaria-like symptoms this weekend.

On Saturday, her condition deteriorated rapidly and she had to be taken to St. Nicholas Hospital, Lagos where she was pronounced dead. 

Sources say she died of COVID-19. 

The deceased was the mother-in-law to former president Olusegun Obasanjo’s son, Juwon, whose marriage to Temitope Adebutu-Obasanjo ended barely a year after it was contracted in controversy. 

She was laid to rest at the Ikoyi Vaults and Gardens.

The Adebutu family have yet to come forward with a statement about the death of his wife.
