Speaking to Punch, Waheed said he had a short telephone conversation with the deceased on Sunday night – he died shortly after.
He said, “We chatted for a while on that night. He even asked me about the outcome of a summit that I attended in Lagos. We talked about other things and we agreed to meet on Monday or Tuesday before I went to bed. I went to his residence to see him the following day (Monday) as agreed only to learn that he was dead.”
He also said Ijuade said the late actor’s co-tenants said they had to force his door open when they did not see him come out, as usual, only to find his lifeless body in a sitting position.
According to reports the actor was not known to be ill. “He never told me that he was sick. He appeared to be quite healthy when I spoke with him on the phone. His death remains a mystery to me,” Waheed said.
The actor has since been buried according to Muslim rites. Ayinde was aged 51, he is survived by a wife and four children.
