Wahab Adegbenro, Ondo State Commissioner for Health, is dead, SaharaReporters reports.

A government official confirmed the news to our correspondent on Thursday afternoon.

The source revealed that Mr 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.”

Governor of the state, Rotimi Akeredolu, is currently in self-isolation after testing positive for the virus earlier this week.
