Justice Ajanah died of COVID-19 at the isolation centre, Gwagwalada, Abuja and was buried at the COVID-19 section of Gudu cemetery.

However, Governor Yahaya Bello, while speaking during Ajana’s burial, dispelled the belief that the former Chief Judge died of coronavirus.

During the third-day of late Ajanah’s burial rites on Tuesday, Governor Yahaya Bello urged residents of the state not to attribute the death of Justice Ajanah to anything else, like the much taunted coronavirus pandemic.

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

He, however, prayed that Allah would grant the deceased Aljanah Fridau, describing Ajana as a dedicated man and a lover of peace in Kogi state and beyond.
