Charles Olumo Agbako issues string wanting to his colleagues

Kemi Filani recalls that Charles Olumo Agbako strongly warned his colleagues against shedding crocodile tears at his burial.

The 94-year-old thespian granted an interview where he said, “I have told them, and I’m also using this opportunity to inform them, that nobody should come and shed crocodile tears at my burial. If they do, my spirit will flog them because when I needed their help, they were nowhere to be found.

“I have been sick, but thank God I’m back on my feet. My ailment was heart-related, and after a series of tests, I was told that my heart was weak, coupled with the fact that I often forgot things, so I was placed on drugs that must be used to avoid any crisis.

“No, the doctors said there was no way they could perform surgery on me. They said the drugs were very essential and must not be skipped. Though I was recently operated upon when I had a urinary ailment, I’m free from that now”.
