Exploring the multiple times Oscar Brown has been poisoned
Kemi Filani reported that they received information from Brown's friend, who claimed that this is not the first time the influencer has been poisoned. The first attempt proved unsuccessful. However, the third took his life.
Following Oscar Brown's second poisoning, he was reportedly hospitalized. This supposedly took place at an event Brown was attending.
Brown's friend said that this was the third time he had been poisoned in three years.
Before his passing, he reportedly sent a message to his friend from the hospital bed which read:
"I just got poisoned again. It seems my enemies are using me to rehearse (their powers). This time, I wasn’t poisoned in the village. I was poisoned in Abuja last week at an entertainment event. I really cannot explain how I was poisoned because it was a gathering of people, though it was not a big event."
"I am recuperating although I have neither worked out nor driven since I got ill. However, I intend to take a walk this (Friday) evening, because I am hopeful that I would get better. I am eating well now, and I’m prepared to go back on set any moment from now."
Unfortunately, the TikToker did not survive the poisoning. Kemi Filani shared a screenshot of a WhatsApp message they had obtained from an unidentified person, which confirmed his death. The message was written by "My Manager T." It read:
"With deep sadness I announce the passing of Oscar Brown who was poisoned again but didn't survive. The last time I spoke to him, he said he was recovering only to hear again and confirm he's gone to rest finally. May his Soul RIP. Be safe out there and be careful of the things you get involved in. Also be prayful. It is well."
Reacting to the unfortunate news, his fans took to social media to pay tribute. A few tweets read:
No other information regarding Brown's death has been made public. Official statements by law enforcement have not been revealed either.
