The family of late veteran actress, Ada Ameh, has released a statement on her funeral date.
KFN reported that the screen goddess passed away on Sunday night, July 17, 2022, in Warri, Delta State, around 11 pm.
Ameh was said to have been a guest of an oil company toyshop and his family when she suddenly collapsed.
KFN got a hold of the news that Ada Ameh died of mental issues and a heart attack.
Faceless blogger, Gistlover who got in contact with the bereaved family, revealed the heartbreaking news.
According to the blog, a family elder had disclosed that she died from mental issues and heart attack.
Giving an update on her burial rites, Abahi Amen, Ada Ameh’s younger sister who spoke on behalf of the family revealed that the actress would be buried in August.
According to her, August 25th and 26th have been slated for her burial.
Abahi appreciated the Actors Guild of Nigeria and other bodies who have stood with them during the trying times.
“Goodmorning everyone, my name is Abahi, I am Ada Ameh’s younger sister. I want to thank you all for standing by us. We are a large functional family. We can’t be wiped off. My husband and I decided to take this initiative to collaborate with her to give announcements and a few persons misinterpreted our intention. There is a lot we have seen in the past week that we are not comfortable with. Plans for her burial are ongoing. We have fixed the burial date for 25th and 26th of August, 2022”.
Kemi Filani news recalls in a lengthy post, that Ada Ameh’s family accused people of setting up condolences and mourning houses without their consent.
In their statement, Ameh’s family revealed how people had been attacking her younger sister, Ameh Abahi, and her husband, Hotom Azuma, for their collaboration on her page.
The family stated that it saddened them to realize that the public prefers to hear that Ada Ameh has no living family members so that they can sympathize than hear the truths from family members.
It became obvious to them that their intentions have been largely misinterpreted and twisted by strangers who want to continue to promote the wrong narrative about their family.
The post added how the family had stayed quiet about her death for a while, during which they received several calls from people setting up condolences and opening mourning houses without the family’s consent.
