Professor Aderemi Adedibu, one of the children of Chief Lamidi Adedibu has debunked the news that the first daughter the late strongman of Ibadan politics died of coronavirus.
Adedibu, in a telephone conversation with Tribune Online, said it was not true that Adijat died of coronavirus, adding that she had been battling cancer for a while but got worsened recently, leading to her death
In his words,“My sister died from cancer at a US hospital on Thursday and not coronavirus pandemic as being insinuated. She was aged 71 and she suffered from cancer for more than six months before she was admitted into a hospital last month.”
“She died in the hospital yesterday (Thursday). I will not be able to provide you the information on her US address and the name of the hospital now. I will provide those two information with death certificate after her burial. Please note America does not bury without death certificate and she will be buried tomorrow by God’s grace,” he said.
He stressed further that the family also got to know of the false report about the death of his sister, and vowed that he would pursue “a logical conclusion the source of the story linking the death of my sister to the coronavirus pandemic.”
He also announced that the deceased would be buried on Saturday.
