Ondo health commissioner Adegbenro dies .

Ondo political fraternity has been thrown into mourning following the death of the state commissioner of health, Dr Wahab Adegbenro, who died of Covid-19 on Thursday, June 2.

Source from the government quarter claimed that the late commissioner died at the Federal Medical Center, Owo, after spending about ten days at the hospital. The commissioner's death came barely 48 hours after Governor Rotimi Akeredolu announced through his social media handles that he tested positive to the virus.

He established Crown Hospital, Akure where he was the chief medical director. He later occupied many political positions before he was appointed the Ondo state commissioner of health, a position he held after managing the state culture and tourism commission. Ondo state has 325 cases of coronavirus as the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) announced fresh 33 cases in the state on Wednesday, July 1.
