The Deputy governor of Lagos state, Obafemi Hamzat, has lost his half-brother Haroun Hamzat, to the deadly Corona Virus.
A medical doctor by profession, Haroun, 37, died after testing positive for COVID19. Until his death, late Haroun worked at a primary healthcare centre in Orile Agege local council development area of the state.
Confirming his passing, the Lagos chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) said the incident has cast a “dark moment” over the association.
“We announce with deep regret the death of our very young colleague, Dr Haroun Hamzat. Its “sunset at dawn” as he was just 37 years old.
He worked as a medical officer at one of the PHCs under Orile Agege LCDA until his demise.
We commiserate with his immediate family, friends, associates, colleagues, and staff of Lagos State PHC Board and indeed the medical fraternity of Lagos State. We pray against such premature deaths in our fold.
May the Almighty God grant his family and all of us, the fortitude to bear this irreplaceable loss, Amen. Adieu to our Hippocratic Brother, Dr Haroun Hamzat. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace.” a statement released states
