Sisi Quadri

The funeral for the Nollywood actor, Quadri Oyebamiji, widely known as Sisi Quadri, took place on Saturday, with his remains laid to rest in his hometown of Iwo.

Recall that on Friday, we reported the death of the actor while on admission at Ladoke Akintola University of Technology Teaching Hospital, Ogbomoso.

It was gathered that the actor’s body was brought from Ogbomoso to Iwo late on Friday and before his internment, prayers were offered at an open field close to his house.

After the prayers witnessed by large gathering of residents of communities, colleagues and well wishers, his remains were buried in front of his house located in Agbowo Area of Iwo.

An immediate past governor of Association of Nigeria Theater Art Practitioner in Osun State, Toyin Olaiya, during an interview with The PUNCH said Oyebamiji took ill while on location, working.

Olaiya, who was the leader of the first theater group that Sisi Quadri joined in Iwo, said it never occured to him that end was near for the deceased when news of his illness was relayed to him.

He said, “Sisi Quadri was indisposed and admitted at Ladoke Akintola University of Technology Teaching Hospital, Ogbomoso, where he eventually gave up ghost on Friday.”

“I discovered him (late Quadri). He joined my group in 1996. It was shocking hearing of his death. I was told he took ill and was brought back from location earlier this week. That is not new to us as theatre practitioners. People can become ill and get treated.

“When I heard of his illness, I told some of his contemporaries that trained under me to visit him. I was told he has been moved to a private medical facility in Iwo for treatment. I never thought it would result to death.”
