He, however, said he would release a detailed statement later.

The statement read,

“Dipo Jimoh (last born and the closest son of the late mother — Mrs. Theresa Jimoh), who recently graduated from Columbia University and the MD/CEO of Barama Energy Resources, has denounced the root cause of his mother’s death as a result of candle fire and also that her remains were deposited in a morgue by Lagos State Emergency Management Agency.

“Dipo has promised to face any heavyweight individual or group who plans to misinterpret or confuse the populace about the root cause of his mother’s death.

“My mother died as a result of family complications and mismanagement.”

It has earlier been rreported that the 76-year-old was at her house in Victoria Garden City when she was burnt to death by a fire that engulfed her apartment on Saturday.

She was alleged to be praying when she dozed off, while a candle she allegedly lit started the fire.

Her remains were reportedly deposited in a morgue after the intervention of firefighters from the Lagos State Fire Service.

  1. Let the truth prevail is this her first time of doing that kind of prayer that she will doze off

  2. The mum is quite advanced, maybe she was too weak and slept off without blowing the candle which caught fire off.

  3. Please allow the death to rest in peace,she is dead already so why bring out the topic, is good to avoid candle in your room and use touch light an advice

  4. Chaiiii what a sad way to die at 76.. Let me ask pls; nobody at home with her like house help? I smell fowl

  5. Rest in peace ma.
    Of what use is you exposing your family secrets to us. But if you are fighting for justice for her, I understand.

  6. What ever cause is death is not the problem but the fact that she is death and that we should move on and fine solution so it does not happen to someone else

  7. Why looking for what kill her? The person is dead and gone already so no need to argue if it candle fire that kills her or not

  8. CANDLE FIRE DEAD OR MISMANAGEMENT WONT BRING HER BACK SO BETTERSTILL STOP THE NARRATIVE ESSAY WE DONT MIND WISHING HER SOUL PERFECT PEACE IN THE HANDS OF GOD AND CONDOLENCE TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY

  9. This is so sad and sorry for your loss. These are things that should have been avoided. If she was sleepy, would have just put off the candle and sleep.But you’re saying she died of mismanagement, Rest in peace.

  10. The true story or fake story of her death won’t bring her back to life… May her soul rest in peace.

  11. She could not be saved from death. The will of God but not in a painful way. The family she unite and be in love

  12. People will not mind their own business. What’s your business with the real cause when the family had told you what happened. May her soul rest on

  13. “My mother died as a result of family complications and mismanagement.”
