Chief Judge of Kogi State, Nasiru Ajanah, on Sunday, died in Abuja aged 64.
He died after a brief illness.
But First News gathered that the Kogi chief judge died at the COVID-19 isolation centre in Gwagwalada, Abuja.
His death is coming barely one week after the President of the state’s Customary Court of Appeal, Justice Ibrahim Shaibu Atadoga, died after a brief illness.
Nigeria Centre for Disease Control has so far announced three cases of COVID-19 in Kogi, but the state government has insisted the state is free of the pandemic.
The state government has also accused the NCDC of falsifying COVID-19 cases in Kogi.
Kogi State Government on its website said Ajanah was born in 1956 to the family of MJ Fari Ajanah in Okene Local Government Area of the state.
He studied law at the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria and set up his private firm, Nasiru Ajanah & Co in Okene, where he practised law between 1985 and 1989.
Ajanah served in various capacities such as chairman, Kabba disturbance tribunal, Kogi, (1994); chairman, election petitions tribunal in Adamawa state (1998); member of the governing council of Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (1999 and 2006) and chairman, panel on Murtala Mohammed international airport fire incident (2000).
He also served as chairman, election petitions tribunal in Akwa Ibom state (2007) and chairman, election tribunal petitions in Rivers state (2008).
His remains will be buried in Abuja on Sunday.
