Expired malaria drug killed Eric Arubayi - brother

While Nigerians are still reacting to the demise of former West African Idol contestant Eric Arubayi, his brother has delved into the circumstances that led to the death of the 34-year-old married father of one.

His brother, Derrick Arubayi narrated on Sunday:

“He had malaria and typhoid, which was untreated. It later became worse after he took a medication that had expired and this triggered his liver ailment and afterwards, every other thing just followed at a fast pace before his death.

“The only thing that we had to say is that he lived for Christ. We just want the world to know that the name Eric Odafe Arubayi was for a reason beyond the West Africa Idol show.

“For that reason, God would make manifest even beyond his glorious ascension.”
