Against the backdrop that the co-owner of Bukka Hut committed suicide, a close friend of Laolu Martins’s wife has said that the businessman did not kill himself as the media had said.
Accordingly, the friend said that the Co-Owner of Bukka Hut was slumped in a mall, based on what another friend said.
In a post on social media, she said that she didn’t like how the story about the alleged suicide spread so quickly.
She said, “This is complete nonsense.
“He did not commit suicide.“
He fell asleep in a mall.
“They just left home.
“My wife is a friend of mine.
“Some Nigerians and spreading rumors or making money off of other people’s problems is 5&6.
“May God help to bring humanity back to its senses.”
Meanwhile, the Martins family also put out a cryptic statement asking the public to respect their privacy.
The statement says, “We are asking for everyone’s support and understanding as our family mourns the loss of our beloved Laolu in private.”
“In this hard time, we ask that you pray for the family, including the husband, wife, children, mother, father, and his siblings who are all old.
“The family will make more news about the death.”
