This is because the actress, who had been declared dead, awoke three hours later.

Bisi Aisha, her daughter, posted the updates on Instagram.

The 62-year-old actress was believed to move her hand three hours after her death was declared.

“My mum is gone,” Bisi Aisha said in a series of Instagram posts late Wednesday night, announcing her mother’s death. “Rest well mummy. May ur soul Rest In Peace mummy”.

On Thursday morning, she updated the post, saying, “Wonderful being, she moved her hand after being confirmed dead three hours ago. God, we will forever praise your holy name.”

Iyabo Oko’s transition was also early announced by actress Foluke Daramola-Salako.

She initially wrote on her Instagram page, “And finally we lost her… RIP Iyabo Oko, we did our best but God knows best”.

Foluke Daramola-Salako also later updated that Iyabo Oko is no longer dead.

“Just heard from her daughter again that she moved her hand and she is still alive. Hallelujah! She is alive.

“It was her same daughter that announced her death before and she was the one that says is alive now.”
