The elder brother of late Nollywood actress, Folakemi Aremu, (Orisabunmi) has debunked a report that his father and his siblings died of COVID-19 complications.
Tunde Onishola, son to late Kwara Falcons Basketball Club Technical Director, Steve Onishola, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Ilorin that the multiple deaths were “just a coincidence’’.
Onishola, who is also a nephew to the actress, said neither his father, Steve Orisabunmi and his younger sister, Janet Ademola died of COVID-19 related circumstances.
Recall that Onishola died in Ilorin on Thur., Jan. 7, barely 24 hours after his younger sister, Folake Aremu (Orisabunmi).
Their younger sister, Mrs Janet Ademola, died on Jan. 9.
Speaking on the deaths, Onishola 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?’’ Onishola told NAN.
He further stated that the younger sister (Janet), who died a few days ago, has been managing blood pressure (BP) for long and that there is a limit to what a woman can take.
“I think the shock was too strong for her, she has been managing BP for long.’’
Onishola said he has taken solace in the fact that his father lived a worthy life because he was able to touch many lives within the basketball circle and outside it.
