The Kano Field Office of the United Nations Children Funds (UNICEF), on Saturday lost its Head of Communications, Malam Rabiu Musa.

Comfirming the incidence to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano, one of the children  of the deceased, Musa Rabiu, said his Dad died at the age of 60.

According to the son, he died at about 3 a.m on Saturday, after battling with a sickness for a few days.

“Although, we noticed symptoms of Coronavirus but the test conducted is not yet out.

“Like a week back, he had complained of sore throat and malaria but after few days on medication he became normal.

“Few days later he complained that he found it difficult to breath.

“He also complained that no matter how short he walked, he loses breath. So, he was taken to the National Orthopeadic Hospital in Dala,  on Friday where he gave up,” the son said.

At about 2p.m. when NAN contacted the son, he said, “we are now at the hospital with the officials of the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) for his burial”.
