He was said to have been discharged after showing signs of improvement. The deceased reportedly resumed work on Monday but suffered a relapse on Tuesday morning.
Omoluwa reportedly died while undergoing treatment.
The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) is prosecuting Omoluwa alongside Ishaq Kawu, director-general of the NBC, and Dipo Onifade, chief operating officer of Pinnacle Communications.
They anti-graft agency accused the trio standing trial for alleged abuse of office and money laundering of misappropriating N2.5 billion in the Digital Switch-Over (DSO) programme.
