Mariam Kawojue, wife of late retired Lagos Television (LTV) broadcaster, Toyin Kawojue, 62, who died on April 6 and was buried the next day, said her husband died after he suffered partial stroke.
Kawojue, a native of Epe in Lagos State, started his broadcasting career at a young age before retiring and later anchored a Radio Lagos programme, “Epe Lawa” as a freelancer before he died.
The wife told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that her husband’s death shocked her because the sickness that killed him did not last up to two weeks.
“He had partial stroke and was taken to hospital where the doctor prescribed drugs for him to use; yesterday he suddenly passed unto eternity.
“My husband was still looking healthy and sound and never believed he would die so sudden.
“At about 9:00 p.m. he shouted out loud while sleeping saying, ‘leave me alone, leave me alone,’ and after a short while, he died,” she said amidst tears.
