A nephew of veteran actress, Folakemi Aremu popularly known as Orisabunmi has said that COVID-19 isn’t the cause of her death and that of her siblings.
Orisabunmi who died on January 5 was joined by her older brother, Steve Onisola, who died on January 7 while their younger sister, Janet Ademola died on Saturday, January 9.
Their death was rumoured to have been as a result of COVID-19.
Denying the rumour in an interview with NAN, son of late Steve Onisola said:
“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 Janet Ademola who had been managing high blood pressure died from shock on the news of her siblings’ death.
”I think the shock was too strong for her, she has been managing BP for long,’’ he said
