Autopsy reports have revealed that the late Mohammed Fawehinmi died from Covid-19 complications.

This revelation was made by the Fawehinmi family on Thursday at a news briefing at his residence, Fani Kayode Street, Ikeja GRA, Lagos State.

Recall that Mohammed, eldest son of late legal icon and activist, Chief Gani Fawehinmi, died on Wednesday, August 11, during a brief illness in a Lagos hospital, at the age of 52.

Mr. Saheed Fawehinmi, the younger brother of the deceased, who spoke on behalf of the family, disclosed that the family could not immediately disclose the cause of the death because they wanted the information to be based on factual medical details.

According to him, “Today, however, we are in a position to inform you that our dear brother died from COVID-19 related complications.

“Arising from this, we want to urge all Nigerians to take necessary precautions to avoid being infected by the deadly disease, including, but not limited to, taking the required doses of COVID-19 vaccine,” he said.

The family urged the government to step up public enlightenment on the deadly disease so that many Nigerians, especially those whose immune systems could easily be compromised because of underlying illnesses, could be more careful.

He, however, urged Federal and state governments to invest more in healthcare, urging the government to do all that was necessary to end ongoing strikes by the National Association of Resident Doctors.
