Emir of Kaura-Namoda in Zamfara State, Alhaji Mohammed Asha, died today.

His death came three days after he went into isolation for suspected coronavirus.

The result of his sample sent to Abuja was still being awaited when he died.

However, it was believed, Asha died of complications from COVID-19.

The deceased was in isolation at the Yariman Bakura Specialist Hospital in Gusau, the capital.

The Publicity Secretary for the Control and Prevention of COVID-19 in the state, Alhaji Mustafa Jafaru Kaura, said burial of the Emir would await officials of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.


  1. If this President hadn’t waited for his family members to come back from United kingdom and elsewhere before shutting down the borders, if Nigerian land and air borders were shutdown at least 3 weeks earlier than they were, Nigeria wouldn’t be having the widespread of infections and deaths from Corona virus pandemic.

    Even when the borders were shutdown, the President’s appointees who are mostly his half baked and unqualified Fulani herdsmen are aimless and clueless about how to make meaningful and fruitful impact on limitations, control and treatment of the Corona virus.

    Madagascar, Senegal and some other African countries found solutions for the Corona virus pandemic but what did the Fulani herdsmen in government find? Nothing.

    Leadership is NOT just about lockdown, what are the government officials handling the situation doing or producing during the lockdown? Senegal developed their own ventilators why couldn’t the Fulanis in power in Nigeria develop anything? Because they are CLUELESS and not qualified for office.

    For a country to develop and progress, it is important to always appoint only knowledgeable and qualified personnels to position of leadership.

    Nigeria is begging for leadership. What a situation. I take a stroll. Nonsense.

    • You are not right Jasper. The time of the closures and lock down in Nigeria was about the same time other EU countries countries did the same. Let’s criticize rightly. With these realities on ground, the labour unions are pressurizing the presidency to open up the economy and lift the lock downs. Will you still blame the president for the aftermath? We have not seen anything yet with regards to covid 19. Most countries having a gradual reopening are taking the steps based on the flattening of the curves; Nigerians are asking for a relaxation when the curve just started rising. If Buhari fails to listen to your cries, you’ll tag him a president that doesn’t listen to the cries of his people. What do Nigerians really want?

    • Atiku cried out and urged the dumb PMB to close airport earlier in February, but the foolish Adesina was saying coronavirus is not a dead sentence. Stupid set of people in government!
