The Chief Judge of Kogi Justice Nasiru Ajanah has reportedly died of COVID-19 in Abuja.
Ajanah, 64, reportedly died in the early hours of Sunday at the COVID-19 isolation center in Gwagwalada, Abuja where he was being treated for the virus.
A source, who spoke in confidence, told The Nation that the late Kogi Chief law officer had been battling a critical health challenge, which necessitated his being moved to Abuja for better medical attention.
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.
