Kogi state Governor, Yahaya Bello, has called on residents of the state to disregard claims by the Nigeria Centre For Disease Control (NCDC), that the State’s Chief Judge, Justice Nasir Ajanah, was Killed by coronavirus.
Bello, who spoke on Tuesday at the third-day prayer for the late Chief Judge said he died of natural causes and not from COVID-19 as “being insinuated by certain persons for political and mischief purposes”.
“Do not give in to fear and evil of the issues of COVID-19. It is a disease that has been imported, propagated and forced on the people for no just cause.
“Nothing kills faster than fear. I urge you all not to accept cut and paste as COVID-19.
“It is only out to create fear, panic and pandemic, orchestrated to reduce and shorten the lifespan of the people.
“Whether medical experts and scientists believe it or not, COVID-19 is out to shorten the lifespans of the people. It is a disease propagated by force for Nigerians to accept” the Governor said.
Ajanah died on Sunday at the Gwagwalada COVID-19 Isolation Centre.
