While the family of the late Nollywood actress are hard at work in organising a befitting burial for Moji Olaiya, it appears some elements have a different agenda concerning the dead.
In a press release circulated by the family and planning committee, it was alleged that there is a news in some quarters that the late actress died of poison.
So the family has this to say:
The attention of the Burial Committee of Late Moji Olaiya has been drawn to the rumour spreading about that the autopsy carried out on the deceased stated that the late thespian died of poison.
The family through this committee wish to vehemently debunked this news and state as follows:
i. Late Moji Olaiya DID NOT die of poison.
ii. The younger brother of the deceased Femi Olaiya who travelled from UK to Canada and top Nigerian promoter in Canada Mr Yinka Farinde monitored and recieved the details of the autopsy and nothing of poison is in the documents.
iii. Whoever is spreading the rumours is evil and have no respect for the dead and that Karma like kinetic energy will locate and find such detractors, using the vulnerability and anonymousity of social media as a channel.
iv. That we know BREAKING NEWS doesnt wait for no one but it makes more sense for the media and blogger to verify vividly the source of a news item and have documetary evidence or fact in sight before going to press.
v. The family finds the rumour disturbing and see it as a deliberate attempt to frustrate the befitting burial they are putting in place for their beloved one.
vi. The accused women were of help to the deceased in terms of accomodation and so on during her lifetime in the same Canada and one of them has been taking care of the 2months old child the deceased left behind as we speak. Any envious intentions against their persons should not degenerate to the level of spreading falsehood such as murder against. It is bizarre and appaling.
vii. The committee humbly again ask for total respect for the dead and family.
Thank you for usual understanding and co-operation in this regards.
