ONDO, Nigeria – Kingsley Shaba, a leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, is dead.

Ade Adetimehin, Ondo APC Chairman announced his demise on Monday.
In a statement by Alex Kalejaye, the Publicity Secretary, Adetimehin described the development as shocking.
“Dr K. B. Shaba was a man of integrity and exceptionally hardworking. He was a very committed and dependable political ally.

He prayed that God would grant Shaba eternal rest.
