SF Taxi Driver Richard Odeboju
suffered a stroke allegedly while
driving a taxi. He was taken to a
hospital by ambulance but died

On July 6, 2011, San Francisco taxi driver Barbajide R. Odeboju, (AKA - Richard Odeboju), was admitted into the hospital after suffering from a stoke, which allegedly occurred while driving a taxi.
Odeboju, who was 58 years old, was Nigerian born and had resided in Oakland for at least 25 years. He is said to have no next of kin in the United States.
According to California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC) records, Odeboju was taken by ambulance to CPMC's Davies Campus at 45 Castro St. in San Francisco. He stayed there in the hospital until he passed away eleven days later on the 17th.
Stroke is listed as the "immediate cause" of passing away, according to public record, although an autopsy wasn't performed.
In addition to, or aside from the facts so far, the following is an interpretation of an account that was offered to Taxi TownSF by Yellow Cab taxi driver Tariq Mehmood, regarding Mr. Odeboju's passing.
