Cause of Gani Fawehinmi son’s death: Family says it’s COVID-19 complications
The first son of the late Chief Gani Fawehinmi, a human rights lawyer, Mohammed Fawehinmi, died from COVID-19 related complications, his family has clarified.
The 52-year-old died at about 9:00 a.m. last week Wednesday, after a brief illness in a Lagos hospital.
However, in an update to what led to his demise, Saheed Fawehinmi, the younger brother of the deceased who spoke on behalf of the family, disclosed at a news briefing at his residence that he died from COVID-19 complication, NAN reports.
Fawehinmi said the family could not immediately disclose the cause of the death because they wanted the information to be based on factual medical details.
“Today, however, we are in a position to inform you that our dear brother died from COVID-19 related complications.
“Arising from this, we want to urge all Nigerians to take necessary precautions to avoid being infected by the deadly disease, including, but not limited to taking the required doses of COVID-19 vaccine.
“The public should ensure the wearing of face masks, regular hand sanitising, hand washing with soap and maintaining social distance amidst the crowd,” he said.
He, however, urged the government to step up public enlightenment on the deadly disease, so that many Nigerians, especially those whose immune systems could easily be compromised because of underlying illnesses, could be more careful.
