Jumoke Razak, wife of the late All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Lanre Rasak, says her husband did not die of COVID-19.
She spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Epe.
Rasak was a member of Lagos State Governor’s Advisory Council (GAC).
Jumoke stated that her husband’s death was natural as he had been sick for some time.
She said the way the 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.”
Jumoke disclosed that her husband was on admission at Reddington hospital in Lagos and that he was not isolated.
“He was receiving treatment as normal sick patient and not as COVID-19 patient. The public should desist from spreading rumour of whether my husband died of COVID-19 or not.
“I am saying emphatically that my husband, Lanre Rasak, 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 grant him Aljanat Firdaus,.”
Rasaq was buried the same day he died, in line with Islamic rites.
