Former Johor menteri besar Osman Sapian died at 11.45pm yesterday. He was 69.
His brother Aziz Sapian said Osman died at his son’s home in Damansara, Kuala Lumpur.
“I was informed of his death by one of our siblings,” he told Bernama when contacted.
On Oct 13, Osman, who was Kempas assemblyman and Ayer Hitam Bersatu chief, was admitted to the KPJ Johor Specialist Hospital after suffering a mild stroke and later treated at the Universiti Putra Malaysia Teaching Hospital, Selangor.
He was appointed as Johor’s 16th menteri besar after the 2018 general election, serving from May 12, 2018 until April 8, 2019.
