Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that actor and scriptwriter, Gbenga Ajumoko, recently passed away months after battling with two chronic ailments. The actor, who was from Ijebu, Ogun state, was said to have been hospitalised for over six months after he was diagnosed.
He was being treated at a hospital in Sagamu, Remo in Ogun state. According to reports, Ajumoko was diagnosed with kidney failure and diabetes disease. It was also reported that the actor was earlier diagnosed with hypertension, which led to the failure of his kidneys.
It was said that Ajumoko was being treated in secret when he was diagnosed but when the illness got worse it was revealed to the public. The actor's failing health had caused a lot of buzz in the Yoruba movie industry after Iyabo Ojo urged her colleagues to help Ajumoko.
The deceased actor had begged Nigerians and the government to come to his aide. At the time, the injections he had to take per day cost N20,000 and Ojo alleged that she contributed for him to be taken care of.
