Nasir Ajanah, chief judge of Kogi state has died at the COVID-19 isolation centre in Gwagwalada, Abuja.
His death came less than two weeks after an aide to Yahaya Bello, the state governor, also died in an Abuja hospital.
Just about a week ago, Ibrahim Shaibu Atadoga, the president of the Kogi customary court of appeal in Kogi state died.
The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has so far announced three cases of COVID-19 in Kogi, but the state government continues to insist that the state does not have any Covid19 cases.
The late Chief Judge, Ajanah was born in 1956 to the family of MJ Fari Ajanah in Okene local government area.
He studied law at 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.
He served in various capacities such as chairman, Kabba disturbance tribunal, Kogi, (1994); chairman, election petitions tribunal in Adamawa state (1998); member of governing council of Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (1999 and 2006) and chairman, panel on Murtala Mohammed international airport fire incident (2000).
Ajanah, whose remains will be buried in Abuja on Sunday, served as chairman, election petitions tribunal in Akwa Ibom state (2007) and chairman, election tribunal petitions in Rivers state (2008).
