Image result for Olumide Bakare died on his way to the hospital - Dele OduleTop Nollywood actor, Dele Odule has faulted online reports claiming late actor Olumide Bajkare died after a failed surgery.

In a chat with journalists on Saturday, the Oru-Ijebu born actor said the deceased died on his way to the hospital, contrary to different versions of online reports.

“He was declared dead on arrival at UCH Ibadan,” he said, quoting a family source.

On the purported account of a failed surgery as being reported online, Odule said “It is not true that he went through surgery again. He did undergo a surgery, but that was a long time ago and it was successful.

“It will be recalled that he was very sick at one time, but he came out of it and he has been in his home,” he added.

Actor Olumide Bakare had been ill for over three years, battling heart and lung illnesses, which at some point confined him to the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan.
