A popular Nigerian television presenter, Rachel Bakam, has died at the age of 38.
Her brother broke the news to the Punch in an interview. The young man, Armstrong Bakam said Rachel died of anaemia on Tuesday, April 13 after she was taken to the hospital on Friday.
Armstrong said, “She had anaemia; so, she was taken to the hospital on Friday and she died this afternoon at about 12pm. I was not with her when she died, but her mother was by her side. “Before Friday, she fell ill and was admitted for some days but she was discharged and taken home. However, she was returned to the hospital on Friday.
“Right now, her mother is not in the right frame of mind to speak. Rachel was 38 years old when she died; she would have clocked 39 on September 11. She had a son.” Armstrong further revealed that the family was in shock as Rachel reached out to them for prayers via the family group chat on Sunday and everyone thought she was recovering.
He said, “We will really miss her because her death is a shocking and devastating news to the family. In fact, the whole family is actually troubled and quite a number of people are yet to believe that it is actually true.
