Moji Olaiya’s Family Reacts To Reports That She Was Poisoned

The family of late Nollywood actress, Moji Olaiya has reacted to the reports in the media crediting the actress’ death to poisoning. Recall that the actress died a few weeks ago in Canada of heart attack after reportedly suffering post-birth complications and was buried some days ago in Lagos.
In reaction to the report circulating, the actress’ family has released a statement thanking everyone -friends, fans, and colleagues -for the show of love and support and also addressing the alleged poisoning report.The statement issued by the family reads:“The Olaiya Family appreciate the immense outpouring of love and affection the public showed the family since the sudden and untimely death of our beloved Sister, Moji Olaiya, and the huge support we received for her burial.

Her friends, fans, colleagues in the movie industry and the general public displayed an uncommon show of support and kindness towards the family in our grieving time.

We are grateful indeed for your condolence messages, visits, gifts and other forms of support, we are indeed very grateful to have such wonderful people. We also want to use this medium to specially thank the Burial Committee and all those who were involved in helping to raise funds for the return of Moji’s remains to Nigeria, we are eternally grateful to you for rising above the grief to support the family.

This is also appreciating Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, erstwhile governor of Lagos State for his humane and philanthropic gesture in providing the required funds for transporting Moji’s corpse back to Nigeria. Thank you, your Excellency. Indeed, Moji received burial befitting queens because of all your efforts.

We wish to use this opportunity to debunk claims circulating on social media that a friend in Canada poisoned Moji. An autopsy was conducted; the autopsy reports indicated that our dear sister died of a different cause that can be termed natural medical cause.

It is not the desire of the family to have anyone implicated in her death having seen the autopsy reports, therefore, we appeal to friends, fans, and the general public to accept Moji’s death as an act of God though rather unfortunate.”

The statement comes after a member of the late actress’ burial committee, Yomi Fabiyi, revealed that the former Lagos State governor, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and a chieftain of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo facilitated the actress’ burial.
