A man who claims to be the brother of Asiwaju, the Twitter user said to have died after being accused of r*pe, has made new claims. The brother to Michael Asiwaju, the founder of Asiwaju Royal Furniture who was reported to have allegedly r*ped a woman in his car in May 2017 has said that people should stop spreading false information and that his brother Asiwaju is not dead.
Earlier today, reports had emerged that Asiwaju had killed himself in a Lagos hotel.
However, the brother who tweeted using Asiwaju’s handle, said: “My brother isn’t Dead, he’s in Coma. Y’all should please stop spreading False information.”
The Police Public Relations Officer in Lagos, CSP Chike Oti, had confirmed the suicide saying “We are investigating a possible case of suicide. We were alerted that a young man died in his hotel room and the Commissioner of Police was informed.
“He directed that the body should be evacuated and that a team of detectives comprising men from the forensic unit and men from the homicide section should investigate the matter.”
