Wife of Veteran Journalist Toyin Kawojue Says He Suffered Partial Stroke Before He Died

Mariam Kawojue, wife of the late retired Lagos Television (LTV) broadcaster, Toyin Kawojue, 62, who died on April 6 and was buried the next day, said her husband died from 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 9:00pm he shouted out loud while sleeping saying, ‘leave me alone, leave me alone,’ and after a short while, he died,” she said amidst tears.

A Lagos state lawmaker, Mr. Abiodun Tobun, described Kawojue as a well experienced and knowledgeable man, adding that he was a foremost Master of Ceremony (M.C.) in Epe area.

    Health is wealth. Let's take our medical check up serious.

  3. Rest in peace sir. I wonder who and what people see before they die. Two days before my brother died he was seeing our dead relatives and kept telling them to leave him alone. Initially we thought it was the sickness that got to his brain. So much mystery in this world.

  4. Omg sorry about the death. RIP to your brother and heavenly comfort to you all Amen.

    RIP to the journalist. May God comfort your family. For him to be shouting leave me alone, death really came visiting

  5. I remember him vividly. Rest in Peace.

  6. May his soul rest in peace... Amen
