It was gathered that, Late Dr Abdullahi slumped in the hospital while awaiting his test result.
A family source has now said that the deceased could not treat himself of the ailment that eventually took his life because his salaries were being held for several months by the Kogi State Government.
“The family of the deceased could not take him to a better hospital because of lack of fund. The deceased had nothing in his account as he has not been regularly paid by the State government.It is unfortunate that the drug that was prescribed for him by his doctor could not be bought because we could not raise anything. And the situation got worsened yesterday at about 2pm when he died,” the source stated.
He has since been buried according to Islamic rites. Dr Abdullahi is survived by a wife and four children.
