But, in a statement on behalf of the family by A. A. Paul, a lawyer, the family expressed their disapproval of the GoFundMe account.

“We plead with the general public to please respect our privacy. We appreciate the public for their concern and love.
“All her children are being taken care of and we have not collected any 32 million from anybody nor are we stranded or begging the public in any form as regards a certain GoFundMe account making rounds. Please everybody should be careful so that you don't get scammed.
“The burial arrangement is in progress and we shall inform the general public once we have made full preparation.
“Please remember us in your prayers as we have seen how far the devil can go but in the name of Jesus we are victorious and the bible says that the steps of the righteous shines brighter and brighter unto a perfect day that is our assurance.”
