…declares state chief judge did not die of Coronavirus
Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, says COVID-19 is an artificial creation aimed at causing fear and panic among people.
The governor also declared that the state Chief Judge, Justice Nasir Ajana, did not die of coronavirus.
Bello stated this on Tuesday during the third-day prayers for the repose of the soul of late Justice Ajana, who died at an isolation centre in Abuja last Sunday.
He said the fear created over Coronavirus was worse than banditry, Boko Haram and genocide put together, adding that it was artificial but unfortunately sold to Nigerians.
Bello advised people of the state not “to give in to fear and evil of the issues of COVID-19,” adding, “It is a disease that has been imported, propagated and forced on the people for no just cause.”
The governor pointed out that fear kills faster than any other thing, urging the people not to accept “cut and paste, as COVID-19 is only out to create fear, panic; 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.”
Bello described the late chief judge as a jurist per excellence and a lover of peace.
Justice Nurudeen Khalifa, earlier in his sermon, enjoined Nigerians to live a life of emulation.
In his remarks, son of the deceased Kogi chief judge said his father’s death was painful.
He thanked the state government for supporting the family.
