Just as the storm rages over who is the legal wife of the late Managing Director of First Foundation Hospitals, Dr Tosin Ajayi, his wife of 25 years, has revealed how she was shabbily treated by her stepchildren and their mum after Ajayi passed on in April 2020.
According to Helen Prest-Ajayi, who had a daughter for the late wealthy physician, she had spent over 42 days nursing him while in his sick bed.
But she was repaid with an arrest, court cases and scuffles at the cemetery.
She took to Instagram and wrote, “This is the first day of Lent a time for spiritual healing and cleansing. This will be my last word on this matter.
It was never my wish to talk about the passing of my late husband Dr Tosin Ajayi on social media, despite the fact that during this 10 month period, from his death on April 26th 2020, I was accused of murdering him by his adult children and their mother after spending 42 days in St Nicholas Hospital by his bedside and dragged to Panti police station, then to coroners court and then to High court. I am thankful that God delivered me from all these false accusations and gave me victory to bury my late husband in the manner he deserved.
I want to express my gratitude to those men and women of God praying with me during these trying moments. I am also grateful for the unflinching support of my family and friends all over the world, who stood by me, even the “Aprokos” propagating me to stardom. 😁
Throughout this 10 month period my sole focus and objective was to ensure that I gave my late husband a befitting burial in accordance with his status as an Icon in the healthcare field in Nigeria, which I am happy I achieved in his honour. Love is at the heart of everything in life. For God is love and Love is God.”
The remains of Dr Ajayi were interred last Thursday in Lagos.
