The publisher of Leadership newspaper, Sam Nda-Isaiah (58), has died after a brief illness on Friday.
A source from his family said, “Yes, it is true. I was just told now. He was ill briefly.”
A staff of Leadership told Nairametrics that the late publisher was at the office on Thursday and didn’t show any sign of illness.
He said, “He did not show any sign of sickness when he appeared at the office on Thursday. Definitely, it was not coronavirus that killed him. Maybe it was cardiac arrest. It is indeed a sad day for us.”
