Falomo played a key role during Abiola incarceration by the military junta led by the late General Sani Abacha. He was the only physician that Chief Abiola would allow administer drugs to him. He was also the leader of the medical team that performed the autopsy on Abiola’s remains after his sudden death in state custody.
“President Muhammadu Buhari sends condolences to family of Dr Ore Falomo, who served humanity for many years, working for citizens, eminent Nigerians and medical institutions.
“The President commiserates with friends and professional associates of the former Chief Medical Director of Maryland Specialist Hospital, whose dedication to duty and welfare of his patients brought him to recognition, especially as personal physician to politician and business magnate, Chief MKO Abiola.
“President Buhari believes the kindness and humane services of the late chief medical director will be sorely missed, praying that God will grant him eternal rest and comfort his family,” Femi Adesina, Buhari’s spokesman said in a statement.
