In 1999, Olabimatan was elected as a senator for the Alliance for Democracy party for Ogun West. He served just one term, standing down in 2003 in order to allow a younger successor to take his place. Later in the same year he was killed in a motor accident.
His death preceded the release of his autobiography, The Graces, the Grass and the Gains. This contained the claim that, in a 1994 meeting, a number of Yoruba leaders had supported the continued imprisonment of Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola, in return for bribes in the form of money and political positions. Those accused of attending the meeting, such as Ebenezer Babatope, have denied knowledge of it
