alfa lateef died ulcer

June  21, 2016 – REVEALED: Nollywood Yoruba Actor Alfa Lati Itakure, Real Name Abdul Lateef Titilope Died Of Ulcer During Ramadan Fast In Oyo State – Family 

More details have emerged on the untimely death of popular Yoruba actor Lateef Titilope aka Alfa Lati.

According to family sources, the late actor was a devout Muslim till the point of his death.

The actor was said to have been diagnosed with Ulcer in August 2015, a condition he managed till the start of Ramadan fast.

Sadly, being a devout Muslim, the actor rather put religion ahead of his health and engaged rigorously in the fast.

His condition became serious on Saturday before he was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was given injection and medication.

Sadly few hours later, he lost his battle to Ulcer at his family home in Oyo town.

May his soul rest in peace (amen).

    So sad, I think there is a need to educate ourselves, u need not endanger ur life in the name of religion, dis our God sees all, he understands more than we expect. And fasting I want to believe should be a personal thing with God, so why go to the extreme and waste ur life away. This must be a lesson to everyone out there, watch and pray for wisdom.

    Islamic figh (jurisprudence) is CLEAR on who can fast and who cant.

    First, fasting in the Holy month of Ramadan is MANDATORY for ALL able Muslims. It is part of Islamic tenets. However, some people are exempted. This is what we learned from primary and secondary school. It is a very simple and basic studies.

    Pregnant or nursing mothers are exempted from fasting. They may fast intervally and make up missed fast after Ramadan is over. Likewise, travelers are exempted and they will make it up later. Sick people are exempted and they will make it up later after Ramadan.

    Again, there isn’t nothing to blame on him. His time was up on earth. But death always tried to find excuse(s) to take life. Meanwhile we were told earlier that he was sick with Malaria. Which one should we believe by the way?

      Nothing will make sense to you even if it’s explain. Why bother myself.

      Other option is to feed the poor throughout the month of Ramadan if someone is unable to fast. Ramadan is the 3rd pillar in Islam and it is mandatory.

      It’s painful when I see people insulting the dead. I hate reading from people who refused to respect the dead. Did they forgot that they will also die one day? As a Muslim, is it right to call your fellow Muslim who is gone

    It is so painful, Ramadan is mandatory only on health person,even Allah Subahallahu Tahla, does not force it on us, if you are not capable of it.

    Too bad! Sick people are exempted from participation, I am sure he knew that. Maybe he wanted God to heal him based on faith.

    Folks, let us educate ourselves about the ULCER illness because I have been devastated by this ailment before and I would like to share this with some folks who might have found themselves in my predicament and possibly permanent remedy. Almost 3 decades ago I was diagnosed with an Ulcer. Ignorantly in Nigeria then, our belief was Ulcer is caused by not eating enough food or not eating at the proper time. All these assumptions are wrong. Not until when I left the shore of Nigeria that God finally paved a way for final solution for me. What actually happened was, I was ill and feeling uncomfortable within my self and my thinking was may be I have some infection which I signed a consent paper for my Doctor to perform all tests for me including HIV, Suphyllis, Gonorrhea. After thourough testing, the first question he asked me was, Have you been diagnosed with Ulcer before? I said yes that was in my Country Nigeria. He told me that I have H Pylori bacteria in me which causes Ulcer. I initially taught he will come up with something more serious. I ‘m still perturbed up till today that we are still ignorant about proper diagnosis in Africa even when a Medical Doctor told me in Nigeria to start scheduling my meal in order to keep my Ulcer at bay. To start with, let us try to define an Ulcer; Ulcer is caused by Helicobacter Pylori AKA H-Pylori bacteria. This bacteria is normally found in the stomach lining. Eating once day doesn’t prone you to have an ulcer or eating spicy food. I knew this because I was arguing with the Doctor who told me that I had no clue about what I was talking about. He was even joking with me that have I done research on my own to discover that? He only prescribed combination drug therapy regimen Antibiotics namely, Prevacid, Amoxicillin and Clarithromycin (Biaxin) or Metronidazole (Flagl) I took them for 14 days that ends it all. I felt so great in me ever than before Since then I have never experienced Ulcer for more than 2 decades now. Sometimes I still eat once or twice a day. If I don’t feel hungry, I remain like that and nothing has ever happened ever since. If anybody ever diagnose with Ulcer should go for 14 days Antibiotics therapy and that will surely ends it. Note: Prevacid, Amoxicillin and Biaxin. Finally, I would like people to visit their Doctor first. Through blood work your Doctor may discover a lot of things which you cannot detect on your own. Then if you want to use our traditional herbs (Agbo) then you will know what you are treating. Modern technology has made it easier to detect anything inside us which is invisible to our naked eyes. This Doctor discovered this bacteria through my blood sample. Another surprise about this therapy is that the same medication can be used to treat some (STD) sexually transmitted diseases in some patients. May the soul of deceased actor rest in perfect peace.
