The Chief Judge of Kogi State, Justice Nasir Ajanah has reportedly died at the COVID-19 Isolation Centre in Gwagwalada, Abuja.
A member of the family confirmed the death on Sunday morning. His death becomes the second high profile death in less than two weeks after an aide to Yahaya Bello, the state governor, also died in an Abuja hospital.
Ajanah was born in 1956 to the family of MJ Fari Ajanah in Okene local government area.
He studied law at the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, and was called to the Nigerian bar as a barrister and solicitor of the supreme court. Ajanah later set up his private firm, Nasiru Ajanah & Co in Okene, where he practised law between 1985 and 1989.
