Nollywood actress, Sotonye Green has died from COVID-19 complications at the isolation centre in Yaba, Lagos, and her colleagues in the movie industry are morning her death.
The death of actress, Sotonye Green was made public by her friend, Debby King who claimed to have taken her to the Yaba Isolation Centre.
Announcing her death, Debby King blamed the Yaba Isolation Centre for killing the budding actress for their ineptitude.
On her Instagram page where she announced the death with accusing fingers pointed at the Isolation Centre, Debby writes:
“Please and Please.
Help spread the word. Yaba isolation center is a dead trap where only the rich and famous are treated after their doctors have been bribed. I never thought I would be saying goodbye so soon. Rest in peace my bestie. May God forgive all your sins and accept your soul into paradise in Jesus name….Amen.”
Please if you know anyone who has COVID, they should stay home, self isolate and treat themselves. They should not go to that Yaba Isolation center. They are killing people there so that they can have numbers to count.
Imagine, they would come and take her oxygen, Oxygen that her family bought for her, they will take it and give to other people. It is the people that give them money they give oxygen to. People that bribe them are the people they take care of. They would come and collect her oxygen and give to other people. Lagos state government, please look into this. That place they are just killing people. That Isolation center in Yaba.”
Debby also shared a screenshot of what she claims to be her conversation with her friends when she was in isolation.
Sotonye Green would be laid to rest on January 15. May her soul rest in perfect peace.

Meanwhile, Nephew to late Nollywood actress, Folakemi Aremu aka Orisabunmi, Tunde Onishola has debunked all the rumours insinuating the actress and her siblings had all died from COVID-19 complications.
While speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin about the multiple deaths, Mr Onishola, who is the son of the late Kwara Falcons Basketball Club technical director, Steve Onishola 71, stated that the multiple deaths were “just mere coincidence’’ and the actress had died naturally.
Recalls that Steve Onishola, her elder brother, died at 71, while the duo’s younger sister passed away on Saturday.
“It is not true that my father, late Nollywood actress, Orisabunmi and their younger sister, Janet died of COVID-19 complications,” he said.
“My dad has been on admission since last year and he was diagnosed for another thing entirely. It has nothing to do with COVID-19 at all.
“Basketballers are aware, they came visiting, I was with him for a month at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH), taking care of him.”
Onishola said Janet had been battling with high blood pressure for a long time.
“I think the shock was too strong for her, she has been managing BP (high blood pressure) for long,” he said. He said that neither his father Steve nor Orisabunmi nor her younger sister Janet Ademola died from the disease. Noting that he takes solace from the fact that his father lived a worthy life because he touched many positively within the basketball circle and beyond.
