Amid strange death in the ancient town of Kano, another prominent monarch, Alhaji Yusuf Bayero, has reportedly died in the state.
The Nation reports that the deceased was the Dan’iya of Kano.
Legit.ng gathered that he was the district head of Dawakin Kudu local government area of the state.
Bayero was said to be the first district head Ajingi local government area in the history of Kano state.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Nasidi Nuhu, a former director of Bayero University Health Services; Yusuf Wakili Yola, a journalist; Ubale Ibrahim, Kannywood actor, were among the latest persons to have died in Kano within 24hours.
It was reported that on Thursday, April 30, Aliyu Daneji, father of Sani Aliyu, national coordinator of the presidential task force; Khadijah Abdallah, wife of Kabiru Bayero, a former ambassador; and Tijjani Yarwa, a businessman based at Kwanar Jaba in Nassarawa local government area of Kano joined the list of those who have passed away.
Since Kano recorded its index COVID-19 case in April, it has been hit by a wave of "strange deaths" which is causing panic in the northern state.
Hundreds of people died within one week in the state, with some suspecting it could be related to COVID-19.
However, the government dismissed such suspicion, attributing the deaths to diabetes, malaria and hypertension.
The Kano state government decided to adopt verbal autopsy to ascertain the cause of the unexplained deaths. According to the government, an autopsy is frowned at by the “religion and culture of our people.”
In another report, two medical doctors and a nurse were held hostage for some hours in Kano by Covid-19 patients, creating a mild drama amid rising figures of coronavirus cases in the state.
Aminu Mohammed, former chairman of the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), made this known during a radio programme on Friday, May 8.
Mohammed said the incident happened while the doctors and nurse were conducting a routine checking around the ward where the patients are being managed.
He stressed that the incident was a confirmation of the challenges being faced by health officials who need to manage hostile patients apart from treating them.
Although Tijjani Husaini, head of Kano COVID-19 technical response team, said he was not aware of the incident, Mohammed called for support for the medics facing the risk of managing the coronavirus cases.
