COVID-19 claims Nasarawa lawmaker

 

A member of the Nasarawa State House of Assembly, Adamu Suleiman, has lost his life to the ravaging coronavirus.

The lawmaker’s death was announced by the state governor, Abdullahi Sule, who said Suleiman who represents Nasarawa Central in the state Assembly, died before the result of his test came back positive.

He disclosed that after the COVID-19 status of the lawmaker was discovered, members of his family and those living in the house went into isolation and samples have been collected from them by NCDC officials for testing.

Sule said the deceased lawmaker has since been buried according to Islamic rites without adherence to safety measures, as it wasn’t clear at the time if he died of COVID-19.

He however gave the assurance that those who performed the burial rites of the lawmaker would also be isolated and tested for COVID-19.

The governor said the state House of Assembly complex is to be closed until it is decontaminated.
