 close to 155 persons have died in Gashua and Potiskum areas of Yobe State over the last six days after exhibiting symptoms related with Coronavirus, SaharaReporters can confirm.

The deaths, which have caused panic among residents of the state, is comparable to the case experienced in Kano recently where people in large numbers died consistently for several days to what had now been confirmed by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 to be the virus.

Between April 30 and may 5, 98 people died in Potiskum, a source told SaharaReporters on Wednesday.

Cemeteries are now the busiest places in these towns.

"In Gashua town, a minimum of 57 have died. Those dying are mostly elders, yet the state Committee on COVID-19 is sleeping in Damaturu as if nothing is occurring ," another source familiar with the case, said.

SaharaReporters also gathered that rather than addressing the challenges his state was facing, Governor Mai Mala Buni has been away in Abuja where he spends quite 80 per cent of his time since being elected into office.

Recall that Buni recently gifted 14 Emirs luxury Sports Utility Vehicles worth over N600m despite the poverty rate within the state.
