The family of Nollywood actress, Mrs Folakemi Aremu, popularly known as Orisabunmi, has finally spoken on the viral claims that the actress and her siblings died from COVID-19 complications.
Ogatv recalls that the actress was reported dead last week after suffering from a cough, and about 24 hours after her demise, Steve Onishola, her elder brother, died at 71, while the duo’s younger sister passed away on Saturday.
As a result, many claimed the siblings probably died from COVID-19 complications or a spirtual attack.
Even actor Kunle Afod publicly asked ” “Orisabunmi, Her brother and sister died under 72 hours…What can we call this ? Lord pls have mercy on us”
A family member, Oluwaseun Adelubi, has now reacted and described the reports as unfounded lies saying:
“We have been hearing and reading the unfounded lies being circulated on social media about their death being Covid19 related but I can tell you that it is a lie, such nonsense should be ignored.
“I am not sure what those behind the lies want to achieve with their stupid act of misinforming unsuspecting members of the public with unfounded lies about the Onisola family. The coach died in Ilorin while Orisabunmi and aunty Bukky died in Ibadan.
“Death is not what anybody prays for, but the death toll in the family, last week, is not about COVID-19. It was just a coincidence and we have been praying to God to avert such an event in our family.”
