Chief Lanre Razak a.k.a KLM dies of protracted illness unrelated to COVID-19

Jumoke Razak, the wife of late APC chieftain, Chief Lanre Razak, has denied reports that her husband died of COVID-19 complications

Razak told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Epe, that her husband’s death was a result of protracted illness.

She said the way her husband died showed that it was time for him to answer the call of his creator.

“Although, my husband was sick, 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,’’ she told NAN.

The widow disclosed that her husband was on admission at Reddington hospital in Lagos and that he was not isolated.
