Emilia Asim-Ita: Cause of The Future Awards founder’s death revealed

Emilia Asim-Ita‘s brother, William, has confirmed she died after an appendicitis surgery.

He confirmed that Emilia died around 8.20am on Friday during a routine walk around the hospital.

She was 33 years.

Williams told Punch: “My sister died yesterday at about 8:20 am. She had an appendix rupture. The appendix had a small lump underneath it and that lump burst; that spleen went to her intestines and it polluted some parts of her intestine. She had to go through a surgery to cut the affected part of the intestines. It was successful as it was done by a specialist.

“She was supposed to be discharged today. She had been okay, strolling around and they had even changed her hospital dress to normal dress, which showed that she was ready to go home.

“Yesterday, she was about to take her normal morning routine stroll and that is how she slumped; before we knew it, we had lost her. She was in hospital for about nine days. Immediately she learnt that she had a ruptured appendix, she went for the surgery the next day. The next morning the surgery was done and it was successful,” he said.
