A nephew of veteran actress, Folakemi Aremu popularly known as Orisabunmi has dismissed claims that she and her siblings died of COVID19 complications.
Orisabunmi and two of her siblings died last week. While the actress died on January 5, her older brother, Steve Onisola, died on January 7 while their younger sister, Janet Ademola died on Saturday, January 9.
Following their reported deaths rumour was rife that they died from COVID19.
However, in an interview with NAN, son of late Steve Onisola, dismissed the rumour.
“It is not true that my father, late Nollywood actress, Orisabunmi and their younger sister, Janet Onishola died of COVID-19 complications. My dad has been on admission since last year and he was diagnosed for another thing entirely. It has nothing to do with COVID-19 at all.
Basketballers are aware, they came visiting, I was with him for a month at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH), taking care of him.
Leave them to be saying their rubbish, how many people will I explain this to, do you know where those things have gotten to?’’he said
He revealed that Janet Ademola has been managing blood pressure (BP) for long and might have died from shock following the deaths of her siblings.
”I think the shock was too strong for her, she has been managing BP for long.’’he said
