Nigeria’s first professor of criminology, Femi Odekunle, has lost his life to complications from Coronavirus.
The Cable reported that the member of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) died at the COVID-19 isolation centre in Gwagalada, Abuja on Tuesday evening.
This is coming after the Chairman of the presidential task force on COVID-19 and secretary to the government of the federation, Boss Mustapha said on Tuesday December 29;
“A good friend of this government just passed on at 6:30pm”.
It is unclear if Mustapha was referring to Odekunle or another person, but he said discussions were ongoing to help the deceased hours before news of his death broke.
