Nigerians were shocked by the news of the demise of Ras Kimono’s widow, Efe Okedi who passed on in the early hours of Sunday 23rd of April 2018.
Recall that a month ago, she and the family were joined by bigwigs in the Nigerian music community for the interment of Ras Kimono
she was not ill before her demise which was similar to Kimono, whose death was bereft of any previous condition.
In a chat with TheNetng, Onome Akpobome, Ras Kimono’s stepson (Efe Okedi’s son who she had before marrying Ras Kimono), revealed that his late mum died of chest pains which started during the night of her death.
“On Saturday, we went to the beach for my uncle’s birthday. Nothing went wrong until about 2 a.m when she woke us up to change over because PHCN had brought the light, she then went upstairs and started complaining of chest pain. At this point, she started breathing awkwardly
“Her elder sister who is a nurse attended to her and gave her first aid but her breathing was still laboured so we decided to take her to the hospital. First, we went to Blue Cross Hospital at Ogba but the staff we saw were unresponsive. I was shocked to see their unconcerned countenance. When we saw that they were not ready to help us so we left and drove to County Hospital. A doctor saw her there, checked her pulse and said she was still breathing but that they had no facilities to treat her. So he referred us to Lagos University Teaching Hospital in Ikeja. When we got to Lasuth at about 4 am, they also wasted our time for over 40 minutes and by the time they were ready to treat her, she had stopped breathing.”
