Media mogul, Dele Momodu, confirmed Anumudu’s demise on his Twitter handle.
He tweeted: “One of Nigeria’s biggest car dealers Willy Anumudu has died! The Chairman of Globe Motors, Victoria Island, suffered some health challenges a few days ago and “was tested for COVID-19 which came out negative”. Prominent Lagos socialite and Chairman of Globe Motors, Chief Willy Anumudu dies at 68!
He was to be air-lifted to Germany this morning but died about 4am. A jolly good fellow, Willy was everybody’s friend and a prominent Lagos socialite. If TOP fashionista, Nkiru Anumudu had her way as she is wont to in fashion and style, she would have bullishly negotiated with death to name its cost and spare the life of her husband, Willy Anumudu.
WILLY ANUMUDU was happily married to his effervescent wife, NKIRU, who sadly was in London when the tragedy occurred in Lagos early this morning.
The bereaved wife is yet to react to the shocking news of her husband’s death.He is survived by his wife, Nkiru and four children, UZOMA, EYINNA, ZINNA and ZIKKY.
