The wife of late ex-international Yisa Sofoluwe, Busola, has revealed in an exclusive chat that her husband was paralysed in both feet before he eventually died, denying rumours that he had contracted COVID-19.

She stated this in a chat with PUNCH correspondent during the burial of the former Super Eagles defender at Atan Cemetery, Lagos on Wednesday.

Sofoluwe died at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital on Tuesday after being diagnosed with mild cerebral atrophy, a brain disease, aged 53.

“News that my husband died of COVID-19 isn’t true. Even when the doctor released him to us today (Wednesday), the man said it was not COVID-19 that killed him. He said he did not write anything like that, he said he did not know who told people that my husband died of COVID-19, that it wasn’t him,” Busola said.

“So if they write that kind of thing, I will sue them, they should not lie, it is better for them to say the truth, they should please say the truth.

“COVID-19 cannot paralyse a person. Immediately that thing happened, his two legs were paralysed; is that COVID-19? I don’t know where they got their COVID-19 story from.”

Busola also told revealed that her husband left behind two sons.
