A nephew of the late Nollywood actress, Mrs Folakemi Aremu, popularly known as Orisabunmi, has dismissed claims that she and her siblings died of COVID19 complications.

Orisabunmi’s nephew denies claims she and her siblings died from COVID19

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.

But according to Punch, Gbenga Onishola, a nephew to the deceased, said the duo’s younger sister passed away on Saturday.

Following their reported deaths, rumour was rife that they died from COVID-19.

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.
