Kano Loses 12 Prominent Persons In 10 Hours

Kano State has continued to witness a rise in unusual deaths as over 12 persons were confirmed dead on Saturday. The deceased include professors, a newspaper editor, and other professionals.

They were buried at different cemeteries within and outside the metropolis.


Within the past eight days of lockdown in the state, no fewer than 20 persons have died from undisclosed ailments.

Eyewitnesses and undertakers at cemeteries in the state said an unspecified number of people had died and were buried over the past few days.

Among the prominent persons that died in Kano on Saturday were Prof Ibrahim Ayagi, Dr Musa Umar Gwarzo, Alhaji Dahiru Rabiu (former Grand Khadi), Musa Tijjani (Editor of Triumph Newspaper) and Adamu Isyaku Dal, who was a former Executive Secretary of the State Universal Basic Education Board.

Others are Alhaji Salisu Lado, Hajiya Shamsiyya Mustapha, Hajiyaj Nene Umma, Alhaji Garba Sarki Fagge, Dr Nasiru Maikano Bichi, Secretary Student Affairs, North West University, Prof Aliyu Umar Dikko of Physiology Department, Bayero University Kano, and Ado Gwanja’s mother, among others.


The spate of deaths in the state has continued to instil fear and confusion among people living in the state.

A dweller, Tijjani Abdullahi, who spoke to our correspondent, called on the state government to investigate the increasing number of deaths in the city in order to address the possible cause of the deaths.

“The state government has concentrated on the fight against coronavirus while people are dying of other ailments in silence. Some even suspected that the people are dying of coronavirus without being detected.”

According to him, most of the recent deaths have been attributed to high blood pressure, malaria, ulcer and even hunger, adding that the dearth of medical doctors to attend to patients in hospitals across the state has become worrisome.

Some people in the state have continued to express concern over the increase in the number of deaths since the state government imposed a total lockdown on the state as a result of the rising cases of coronavirus.

Meanwhile, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje on Wednesday denied that there was any strange death in the state, saying, “There is nothing to show that there is unusual frequency of deaths in Kano State.”

The Kano State Taskforce Committee on COVID-19 said the number of confirmed cases was 74 as of Saturday.

The Coordinator of the taskforce committee, Dr Tijjani Hussaini, told our correspondent in Kano on Saturday.

It is possible that people have been dying in such numbers in Kano and nobody cared, Covid-19 only created the awareness.

What's with all this obsession about kano state. It is that there is another different kano apart from the one I know? I don't get. Or it is that some of you are vehemently praying for people to start dropping dead in kano so that your sick minds will gloat about it. People die and everyday babies are born in kano. Why is there this sinister plan to attribute any dead in kano to a covid19 related dead?

Well somethings are bether ignored!

A state population is about to be reduced.

But stupidity won't allow them to tackle the menace on time.

Kano is probably bungling or has already bungled the struggle against Covid-19.

But this isn't time for blame game, let the FG through NCDC, Presidential, Task Force and other means assist Kano now for the sake of all of us.

Kano is largely a Muslim state and majority of the women already have some form of protection like Hijab and gloves.

The scenario she painted x playing out inasmuch as it hurts.

Private organisations need to intervene and become more decisive. Ganduje and Buhari are clearly inept like Trump. The deaths of these people dont matter to them so far its not Abva Kyaris.

What happens in kano affects us all so far we are still one country. We should start pleading for help cos Kano is the new epicenter. Had it been that the original strain that hit italy hits kano now, young people would be spared, I think , but alas that covid had mutated - 31 and 40s are not spared anymore.

Remember when the world eradicated polio, huge swathes of it were still in Kano...

Overpopulation mixed with illiteracy is never a good thing by the way

In Lucky Dube's voice "people dying like flies everyday..." therefore, the government of Kano state and the Federal government must act as a matter of urgency to savage the unfortunate situation in Kano because we can't afford to be like Americans and the European losing people in hundreds and thousands a day.

This is one of the things Melinda Gates saw before she made that statement.

Nigeria is not prepared.
Can you imagine?

You will be shouting 'back to sender' when you are oblivious of the abysmal condition of the health sector.

Kano labs are shutdown for days.

Your government is incompetent. Bill & Melinda Gates are not your problem.

Anyone with common sense won't insult Gate's family.
But in a country where religion has beclouded their sense of reasoning, they would be shouting 'it is not my portion', when the dangers are obvious.

My people perish for lack of knowledge.

If your government refuse to act like a responsible government, more dead bodies would be seen.
