His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Bauchi state, Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed, Kauran Bauchi has debunked an online media report that there have been massive deaths in Azare, Headquarters of Katagum Local Government within the last seven days.
We don’t have such incident of ongoing mass deaths in Azare as reported in some sections of the media and the social media.
Based on our finding in the town, only 30 people have so far died in the last one week, and their deaths were not in any way related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Governor described the report fake, baseless and misleading, generated by mischief makers.
Currently, Bauchi state response to Covid19 is one of the best in the northern part of the country in the areas of effective surveillance, contact tracing, efficient and professional case management, good risk communication and community engagement as well as proper coordination at the emergency operation centre.
