The family of late Nollywood actress, Moji Olaiya, has denied allegations that the deceased did not die from poisoning.

A statement by the Moji burial committee quoting  the family said the younger brother of the deceased, Yinka Farinde received the autopsy report and there was no poison found in her body.

The statement signed by Yomi Fabiyi, reads in part “Whoever is spreading the rumours is evil and have no respect for the dead.

"Karma like kinetic energy will locate and find such detractors, using the vulnerability and anonymousity of social media as a channel to perpetrate their motive.

“That we know BREAKING NEWS doesn't wait for no one but it makes more sense for the media and blogger to verify vividly the source of a news item and have documentary evidence or fact in sight before going to press.

“The family finds the rumour disturbing and sees it as a deliberate attempt to frustrate the befitting burial they are putting in place for their beloved one.”

Moji Olaiya died in Canada from complications relating to child birth. Her body is still in Canada.
