MURIC Speaks On Mysterious Deaths In Kano State

The Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has reacted to the deaths which have been recently recorded in Kano State amid COVID-19 pandemic.

MURIC Director, Prof Ishaq Akintola, who reacted via a statement questioned the lack of COVID-19 test centers in Kano State which is highly populated.

According to him, it might be a ”deliberate attempt at debilitating Northern population with its attendant impact on Muslim majority population in the country”.

“Records have shown that the advent of the virus in some Northern states is not unconnected with the ancient city of Kano. The index cases in Adamawa, Plateau, and Jigawa are from Kano. Even two of the index cases in Kaduna are from Kano. That is an indication that the virus is very active in Kano State. Kano already has 77 cases of Corona virus at the last count but even that figure is debatable.

“More disturbing is the rumour that the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) in the state has locked up its offices and its officials are not responding to distress calls. The only testing centre in Kano which is situated at the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital has also been allegedly locked up. So where did NCDC get its figure on Kano? Something is fishy here. We are surprised that testing centres are almost nonexistent in the North. Is this a deliberate attempt at debilitating Northern population with its attendant impact on Muslim majority population in the country?

“We therefore demand an inquiry into circumstances surrounding the alleged closure of NCDC office in Kano State as well as the paucity of testing centres in the whole North.” the statement read.
