Yoruba movie star, Aisha Abimbola aka Omoge Campus, is scheduled to be buried in Canada today (Thursday).
Actor, Saidi Balogun, who is president of The Golden Movie Ambassadors of Nigeria revealed this on his Instagram page on Thursday.
He said Omoge Campus, who was the vice president of the organisation before her demise, would be buried at exactly 2:30 p.m Canadian time (8:30.pm Nigerian time).
However, a candlelight procession/artiste night will be held on May 24 in her honour in Nigeria.
Ace comedian, Ali Baba, also posted a Whatsapp conversation between himself and the deceased actress, which took place on May 3. In the chat, the actress admitted that she had a health issue.
Meanwhile Nollywood actress, Lola Alao, has debunked the allegation that the family of the late actress needs the financial support of the public to bury her.
Ms Alao, in a video shared on the Instagram page of fellow actress, Ronke Ojo-Anthony, popularly called Ronke Oshodi Oke, said that the late actress suffered from breast cancer and didn’t make her terminal condition public because she was a private person.
She also said that the actress was a Canadian citizen, and that the country bore the cost of her medical treatment.
Ms Alao, who said she was speaking on behalf of the deceased’s family, asked the public to ignore anyone soliciting for funds for the burial of the late actress.
She said, “We do not need any support from anyone.”
Ms Abimbola died on Tuesday, leaving behind two children, siblings, and a parent.
