The Kogi State governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, has insisted that the late Chief Judge of Kogi State, Justice Nasiru Ajanah did not die of coronavirus even as he asked the people in the state not to give in to fear of the virus.
The governor, who spoke today, June 30 in Lokoja during the 3rd day Fidau prayer for the repose of the late Chief Judge, stressed that coronavirus was imported into the country and forced on the people.
He said that late Justice Ajanah died a natural death, and urged the people not to attribute his death to anything other than natural.
Yahaya Bello condemned the insinuations being peddled which he said were for political and mischief purposes.
According to him, coronavirus is artificial which has been unfortunately marketed and sold to Nigerians.
He described the virus as worst than banditry, Boko Haram and genocide.
Governor Yahaya Bello advised citizens not to give in to fear and evil of the issues of coronavirus , stressing that it has been imported, propagated and forced on the people for no just cause.
“Nothing kills faster like fear. People should not accept cut and paste. COVID-19 is only out to create fear, panic, pandemic. It is a disease orchestrated to reduce and shorten the lifespan of the people.
“Whether Medical experts and Scientist, believe it or not, COVID-19 is out to shorten the lifestyle of the people. It is a disease propagated by force for Nigerians to accept”.
The governor described the late jurist as a brain, jurist per excellence and a lover of peace and prayed Almighty Allah to grant him Aljanah Firdausi.
