Kogi state Governor Alhaji Yahaya Bello again disagreed with the National center for disease control (NCDC), this time over the cause of death of the state’s chief justice, justice Nasir Ajanah.
Ajanah died on Sunday in the Gwagwalada COVID-19 isolation center from suspected complications caused by a new disease.
Bello had a continuous battle with the NCDC authorities over the presence or absence of positive COVID-19 cases reported in the state, claiming that the latter made up figures that were neither correct nor came from the state.
Bello, who spoke on Tuesday at the third day of prayers for the late chief lawyer of Kogi, urged residents of the state not to give in to fear, saying that COVID-19 remains an imported product into the country and is being imposed on the people.
He described COVID-19 as something worse than banditry, Boko Haram insurgency and genocide combined, adding that it was artificial but unfortunately sold to Nigerians.
He said that the late judge Ajanah died of natural causes, and called on the people not to attribute his death to anything other than natural, ” as some persons have hinted for political and malicious purposes.’
“Do not give in to the fear and evil of COVID-19 questions…. this is a disease that was imported, spread and imposed on people for no reason.
“Nothing kills faster than fear. I urge you all not to accept cut and paste as COVID-19. This is done only to create fear, panic, a pandemic organized to shorten and shorten the life span of people.
“Whether medical experts and scientists believe it or not, COVID-19 aims to shorten people’s lifespans. This is a disease spread by force that Nigerians must accept.”
Bello described the late Ajanah as an intelligent, excellent lawyer and lover of peace, and begged Allah to grant him Aljanah Fidaus.
