Mrs Jumoke Razak, the wife of late APC chieftain, Lanre Razak, said her husband did not die of COVID-19.
Jumoke, on Monday in Epe, said that her husband’s death was natural as he had been sick for some time.
She said the way her husband died showed that it was time for him to answer the call of his creator.
“Although, 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 gave up on Aug. 15.
“From God, we come and to Him, we shall all return. God, knows best,’’ she said.
The widow disclosed that her husband was on admission at Reddington hospital in Lagos and that he was not isolated.
“He was receiving treatment as a normal sick patient and not as COVID-19 patient.
“The public should desist from spreading the rumour of whether my husband died of COVID-19 or not.
“I am saying emphatically that my husband, Lanre Razak, did not die of COVID-19.
“Anybody can be sick and be treated fine while some will be sick and pass to eternity.
“Therefore, it is God’s time that He took my husband.
“May Almighty Allah forgives his shortcomings and grants him Aljanat Firdaus,’’ she prayed.
NAN reports that the APC Chieftain dead on Aug. 15 and was buried same day according to Islamic rites.
