COVID-19?: Haroun Olalekan Hamzat Is Dead. Lagos Deputy-Governor's Brother Dies by fergie001: 1:37pm On Jan 06
Dr Haroun Olalekan Hamzat, half-brother to the Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr Kadri Obafemi Hamzat, is dead. The cause of death was yet to be ascertained at press time.

His death was announced on Tuesday, 5 January, 2021 by the Lagos State chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association, NMA.

According to the statement, the young medical doctor who worked in one of the public health centres in Orile Agege Local Council Development Area, LCDA, was aged 37.

Further investigation from Orile Agege LCDA revealed that the young doctor may have died from complications arising from Covid-19 infection.

“He was sick and later tested positive for Covid-19 and was rushed to the Infectious Disease Hospital in Yaba where he later died,” one of the health workers in a Public Health Centre, PHC in Orile Agege LCDA confirmed in confidence.

Another said, “He was such a promising young man, very jovial and generous. We will miss him”.

However, at press time, the report could not be confirmed from the Deputy-Governor.

An aide of the Deputy-Governor when contacted and speaking under anonymity, said, “Family yet to speak, but i am yet to confirm the report.”

Below is the press statement from the Lagos State chapter of the NMA:

“It’s a dark moment in the Nigerian Medical Association, Lagos State, as we announce with deep regret the death of our very young colleague, Dr Haroun Hamzat. Its “sunset at dawn” as he was just 37 years old.

“He worked as a medical officer at one of the PHCs under Orile Agege LCDA until his demise.

“We commiserate with his immediate family, friends, associates, colleagues and staff of Lagos State PHC Board and indeed the medical fraternity of Lagos State. We pray against such premature deaths in our fold.

“May the Almighty God grant his family and all of us, the fortitude to bear this irreplaceable loss, Amen

“Adieu our Hippocratic Brother, Dr Haroun Hamzat may your gentle soul rest in perfect peace.”

“Signed: Nigerian Medical Association, Lagos State.”

It's like this new strain of COVID-19 is killing younger people, unlike the previous one. The Ekenedilichukwu transport owner's son who also passed away from covid19 some days ago was just 42yrs old, while this latest victim is just 37. This is some scary sheet.

Nigerians are evil, most of them! When someone dies, instead of them to rejoice and thank God for calling him home, they will not! Bunch of wicked, heartless, evil and envious lot!

Shedding crocodile tears.. Not because they love the young man, but cos they're pissed that he left them behind to go and meet the Lord in a better place!

The same thing happens to the living.. When you prosper on Earth, these same evil hypocrites will do everything to bring you down!

See eh, only God can help us in this country!

Nigerian pastors are waiting for COVID-19 to disappear so that they can go back to their business of 'healing' the sick.

your first 2 Paragraphs finish everything. Churches dey teach say if we die na heaven straight, while people cry again when death occur, nobody wan die but them believe say them go enter heaven upon death.what hypocrisy. We are all dust, both man and animal, so we will all become upon death. Adam and Eve aren't different from us. Only hope for man is Resurrection on last day as Bible teach..this I can authoritatively confirm.

This covid is gradually taking its toll in Lagos especially, people should be careful, I suffered it and it wasn’t easy surviving it, the severe shortness of breath was the main thing, upon all my fitness and strength it took me nearly 5months to completely recover..
