The Ondo State Commissioner for Health, Dr Wahab Adegbenro, is dead at the Federal Medical Centre in Owo after contracting the COVID-19, otherwise known as Coronavirus.
The State government confirmed the news to our correspondent on Thursday afternoon.
The source revealed that Adegbenro died on Monday after he was rushed to a hospital in Owo after contracting Coronavirus.
“The Commissioner died at the Federal Medical Centre in Owo and this has just thrown the entire cabinet into chaos.
“He died of COVID-19 because he had contracted the virus earlier and was taking drugs at his own comfort being a medical doctor.”
The state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, is currently in self-isolation after testing positive for the virus earlier this week.
