On Friday 4th of January 2013, Nollywood Actress Bisi Komolafe was laid to rest at the St. Theresa Catholic Seminary cemetery in Ibadan after her funeral mass at the funeral mass took place at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Oke-Padre, Ibadan.
Ever since her death on the 1st of January 2013, there have been rumours and accusations against Bisi’s fiance, Tunde Ijaduola. The couple had been together for over a year, completed their traditional introduction in 2012 and were expecting a child before Bisi fell ill 3 months ago. There were additional claims that Tunde refused to perform the dust-to-dust rite at Bisi’s grave during the burial ceremony.
Tunde gave his first interview since the tragic incident earlier today as he spoke to NaijaHottestGist.com
Here is what he had to say.
On Bisi’s Jeep and Property
I didnt take Bisi’s property. I don’t think it is a proper thing for family members to be fighting me for Bisi’s property less than 24 hours after Bisi’s death when we should be mourning her.
Bisi died at age 27 and it is sad.
I am sending the Honda Pilot (vehicle) back to them, sadly enough Bisi’s parents do not have issues with me but her extended family members.
Please note I have given them time and place to pick the car.
On the Accusation that he went back to pack Bisi’s belongings while she was ill
I came back to Nigeria on October 24th 2012. Bisi and I left the Ikorodu flat on October 26th 2012 and till now (as I speak), I have never been to the Ikorodu apartment I rented for her. It is shocking what I am hearing. When I meet Bisi, she was living in Ajao Estate and I was the one who rented the Ikorodu apartment for her.
On accusations that he was “hiding” Bisi while she was ill
I had to change Bisi’s numbers because she needed rest. When she was ill people kept calling her for work.
His Opinion on the Cause of Bisi’s Illness
It is sad that Bisi died the way she did. One of the main issues between me and her family was that when Bisi’s sickness dragged on, I went spiritual and we were told her problems were spiritual but her family didn’t allow us to take her for spiritual care.
“I Loved Bisi”
I loved Bisi till she died and she loved me. What property of bisi will I take? Please go and ask about me. I am from a good family background and we are comfortable. My father retired as a permanent secretary in Lagos and I have a thriving car business.
On reconciling to his ex-wife after Bisi’s death
All that is crap! Till Bisi died she was my wife and I will forever cherish her.
Bisi’s death is so sad. May her soul rest in peace. We hope that all family issues are settled as soon as possible.
