Wife of the late All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain Mrs. Jumoke Razak has said her husband did not die of Coronavirus.
Jumoke told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) yesterday her husband had been ill for some time and so it was time for him to answer the call of his creator.
She said: “My husband was sick but he was responding to treatment and looking healthy to recover, but suddenly, death caught up with him. I received a call from the hospital where my husband was treated that he died on August 15. From God we come and to Him we shall all return. God knows best.”
The widow said her husband was on admission at Reddington Hospital in Lagos and was not isolated.
“He was receiving treatment as a normal sick patient and not as COVID-19 patient. The public should desist from spreading rumours of whether my husband died of COVID-19. I am saying emphatically that my husband, Lanre Razak, did not die of COVID-19. Anybody can be sick, get treatment and be fine while some will pass to eternity. Therefore, it was in God’s time that He took my husband.”
