Following the videos, late Bimbo’s brother Oyindamola Martins, called out IVD. Oyindamola made new revelations in the Instagram posts he shared.
He alleged that IVD is HIV positive and also the one who shot people at a club where award-winning singer, Burna Boy and his crew were accused of engaging in a shootout over a married woman earlier this year. He also shared videos to back up his claim.
Martins further alleged that IVD threatened to shoot him on sight after he released evidence to prove that he is responsible for his sister’s death as he seeks justice.
Her demise comes after many years of physical abuse she suffered from her husband and the father of her children.
In May 2019, Bimbo regained consciousness after she was allegedly beaten to a coma by her husband during pregnancy. She was 8 months pregnant at the time.
Then, on October 4, 2020, IVD released a video of him reconciling with his wife days after she released an exposé explaining how she allegedly suffered domestic violence from him for 19 years.
