A source told The Sun said: “This is a very strange death. Have you heard of a person dying of toothache? That is what happened to Yinka Davies’28-year-old son, Jeremiah whom she had with Ayo Bankole. He had this toothache that he had been treating for a while and which was giving him problems. He was even taken to the hospital and treated. However, he fell sick again and died from complications resulting from the toothache. This is a very trying time for Yinka Davies. May the Lord console her.”
