The strange deaths in Kano have continued despite the assurance of government that the situation is under control.

On Sunday, Muhammad Garba, commissioner of information, had asked residents not to panic “as government is on top of the situation and the mystery or whatever it is will soon be unravelled”.

In the last one week, the state has recorded multiple deaths, with Sabitu Shaibu, deputy head of the state task force on COVID-19 putting the toll at 640.

There were concerns that the deaths could be as a result of COVID-19 (Kano has 77 confirmed cases of coronavirus) but Garba attributed them to hypertension, acute malaria, diabetes, among others.

The harvest of deaths continued on Sunday with the demise of Aminu Yahaya, a former commissioner of education in the state.

TheCable gathered that Yahya died at his residence located at Gandun Albasa quarters in the city and has been interred in accordance with Islamic rites.

Mudi Mudi, a senior official of the Kano Secondary School Management Board (KSSMB), also died on Sunday.

The loss of lives in the ancient city not only affected the elite, the lower class of the society also had their share. A commercial transporter simply identified as Boluwaji passed away in the early hours of Sunday.

An Ogun born commercial driver better known as “Action Governor” also lost his life under strange circumstances on Sunday. A local businessman simply identified as Sunday slumped and died along Katsina road within Kano metropolis.

Osagie Ehanire, minister of health, had said the federal government had set up a panel to probe the strange deaths in the state.

Femi Falana, human rights lawyer, asked the federal government to make the findings of the panel public.

All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader, Bola Tinubu, has paid a solidarity visit to the governor of Lagos state, Babjide Sanwo-Olu, ending the speculation that he travelled out of the country.

Tinubu’s visit to Sanwo-Olu came on Saturday, October 24, at the Marina State House amid a deluge of tragedies occasioned by wanton of destruction in the state by hoodlums. Addressing journalists, the APC leader expressed displeasure with how EndSARS protest transcended into violence that led to the vandalisation of the government properties and private facilities. Clearing the air on the Lekki shooting, Tinubu said his visit to the governor was to ask him if he ordered the operatives of the Nigerian Army to unleash terror on peaceful protest. The APC national leader also debunked the circulation that he was in France during the bedlam, saying it was fake news. “I didn’t go nowhere; I’m a Lagosian and I still hold the title of Asiwaju of Lagos and I am still a Jagaban.

“Whatever they think. Fake news is all over the place. They say Seyi my son was kidnapped and was chased but look at him. I didn’t pay a penny to bring him here.” Earlier, Tinubu denied having a hand in the killing of some EndSARS protesters at Lekki tollgate, saying he would never be part of any carnage. In a related development, Governor Sanwo-Olu has lifted the lids on the alleged removal of the CCTV camera prior to the toll gate incident. Speaking on Arise TV on Thursday, October 22, the Lagos state governor stated that “nobody ordered” the removal of the camera and turning off the light contrary to the circulation on the social media.

Sanwo-Olu said there was the security of LCC on the ground and added that what looked like a camera are “necessary installation” removed due to 24-hour curfew imposed on the state over repeated attacks of hoodlums.
