Bello faults NCDC, says Kogi CJ’s death natural

The Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, has disagreed with the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control on the cause of the death of  the state Chief Judge, Justice Nasir Ajana.

Justice Ajana died on Sunday in the Gwagwalada COVID-19 isolation centre.

But the governor, who was speaking at the third day prayers for the deceased on Tuesday, said the late Chief Judge died a natural death, urged the people not to attribute his death to anything else.

He said, “Don’t  give in to fear and evil of the issues of COVID-19;  it is a diseases that has been imported, propagated and forced on the people for no just cause.”

The governor described the late CJ as a jurist per excellence and a lover of peace. He prayed that Allah would grant him Aljanah fridau.

Earlier in a sermon, Justice Nurudeen Khalifa urged Nigerians to live a life of emulation, pointing out that every man has a reward after death. He also advised Nigerians on good living while alive
