Ajayi breathed his last at 68 on April 20 last year but was buried on February 11, 2021 — about 10 months after his death.

In a recent post on her Instagram page, Helen recounted how she was accused of killing her husband by the deceased’s first wife and older children.

The UK-trained lawyer said it was unfortunate that anyone would accuse her of killing her husband of 25 years, despite spending 42 days beside his hospital bed before he eventually died.

The writer cum literacy advocate also disclosed that she was dragged to the Lagos state criminal investigation and intelligence department at Panti as well as the high court over the matter.

“This the first day of Lent a time for spiritual healing and cleansing. This will be my last word on this matter,” she wrote.

“It was never my wish to talk about the passing of my late husband Dr Tosin Ajayi on social media, despite the fact that during this 10 month period, from his death on April 26th 2020, I was accused of murdering him by his adult children and their mother after spending 42 days in St Nicholas Hospital by his bedside and dragged to Panti police station, then to coroners court and then to High court.”

She, however, thanked God that she was acquitted of the allegations levelled against her and ultimately gave her husband a befitting burial.

“I am thankful that God delivered me from all these false accusations and gave me victory to bury my late husband in the manner he deserved,” she added. ⁣

“I want to express my gratitude to those men and women of God praying with me during these trying moments. I am also grateful for the unflinching support of my family and friends all over the world, who stood by me, even the ‘Aprokos’ propagating me to stardom.⁣

“Throughout this 10 month period my sole focus and objective was to ensure that I gave my late husband a befitting burial in accordance with his status as an icon in the healthcare field in Nigeria, which I am happy I achieved in his honour. Love is at the heart of everything in life. For God is love and love is God.”
