The Chief Judge of Kogi State, central Nigeria Nasir Ajanah has been reported dead from coronavirus.

His death comes just a week after an top judge in the state Ibrahim Shaibu Atadoga passed on after a short illness.

The state government is yet to confirmed the sad incident. A press aide to the governor directed all enquiries to the state’s judiciary and the late judge’s family.

The late judge studied law at the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, and was called to the Nigerian bar as a barrister and solicitor of the supreme court.

He has been the chief judge of the state for the past sixteen years. Prior to his appointment he entered into private practice before joining the judiciary where he served till he passed on.

The state government has clashed with Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC)for declaring the state had recorded three coronavirus cases while the former claimed no cases.
