The Hidden Truth Behind The Death Of Veteran Yoruba Actress Iyabo Oko (Details)

Iyabo Oko, a well-known Yoruba actress in Nollywood, has sadly departed from this world.

The veteran actress, also recognized as Sidikat Odukanwi, took her last breath on the evening of Wednesday, June 29th, 2023.

It is disheartening to learn that Iyabo Oko had been away from the film industry for an extended period due to her ongoing health struggles, and unfortunately, these challenges led to her untimely passing.

Iyabo Oko’s passing has been confirmed by her daughter, Bisi Aisha, although specific details surrounding her demise have not been disclosed. In a heartfelt message, her daughter wrote, “May your soul Rest in Peace, Mummy.”

Interestingly, there was a peculiar incident last year involving Iyabo Oko. She was previously reported as deceased but miraculously came back to life a few hours later. The veteran actress, who had been bedridden for over five years, was declared dead on Wednesday, January 5, 2022, only to unexpectedly revive in the early hours of Thursday, January 6, 2022.

Reports suggest that Iyabo Oko even exhibited movement in her hand after being pronounced dead. Her daughter, Olamide, initially confirmed the news of her passing but later shared the astonishing news of her resurrection.

It is unfortunate that Iyabo Oko’s actual passing has occurred now, following the recent death of her fellow actor, Murphy Afolabi, just a few weeks prior.
