The Chief Judge of Kogi State, Nasir Ajanah, has died after contracting the dreaded COVID-19 infection.
Ajanah, 64, family sources confirmed died at the COVID-19 isolation centre at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada in the Federal Capital Territory.
The late chief judge is to be buried in the FCT on Sunday.
The death was also reported last week of the President if the Kogi Customary Court of Appeal, Ibrahim Shaibu Atadoga.
The state has the lowest number of COVID-19 cases in the country, recording only three according to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
The Kogi State government has however been at war with the NCDC denying it has any case of COVID-19 and making it difficult for the NCDC and hospitals to conduct tests.
