Kogi State Chief Judge Dies Of COVID-19


SAN FRANCISCO, June 28, (THEWILL) – Kogi State Chief Judge, Nasir Ajanah has died as a result of COVID-19, two weeks after an aide to Yahaya Bello, the state governor, also died in an Abuja hospital.

Ajanah was born in 1956 to the family of MJ Fari Ajanah in Okene local government area.

He was a law graduate of the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, and was called to the Nigerian bar as a barrister and solicitor of the supreme court.

Ajanah later set up his private firm, Nasiru Ajanah & Co in Okene, where he practised law between 1985 and 1989.

Ajanah died at the age of 64.

Although the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has announced just three cases of the virus in Kogi, the state government has insisted the state is free of the disease and has accused the NCDC of cooking up figures of COVID-19 cases in Kogi.
