The Cheif Judge of Kogi State, Nasir Ajanah, is dead. He was aged 64.
It was gathered that th jurist died at the COVID-19 isolation centre in Gwagwalada, Abuja.
A member of the family confirmed the death to The Fidelinfo on Sunday morning.
His death came less than two weeks after an aide to Yahaya Bello, the state governor, also died in an Abuja hospital.
Ajanah has died a week after the passing of Ibrahim Shaibu Atadoga, the president of the Kogi customary court of appeal in Kogi state.
Kingsley Fanwo, the state commissioner for information, did not immediately respond to enquiries for comments, but Mohammed Onogwu, chief press secretary to the governor, directed our platform to the state judiciary or Ajanah’s family.
“They are the first people that will break the news of the death,” he told The Fidelinfo.
Although the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has so far announced three cases of COVID-19 in Kogi, the state government has insisted the state is free of the disease.
It accused the NCDC of falsifying COVID-19 cases in Kogi.
