The Vice-Chairman of Benue State Action Committee on COVID-19, Professor Godwin Achinge, has died from COVID-19 complications.
It was gathered that Achinge, also a deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academics), at the Benue State University, died on Sunday afternoon at a hospital facility in Jos where he was taken to after he tested positive for COVID-19 early last week.
The State Commissioner of Information, Mrs Ngunan Addingi, said she was not yet aware and promised to get back to newsmen later today.
However, dependable sources, who are members of the committee but prefer anonymity, confirmed the development.
