The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the suspension of legislative activities might not be unconnected with the death of one of the lawmakers, Tunde Buraimoh.

The lawmaker reportedly died of COVID-19 on Friday morning.

Until his death, Mr Buraimoh was the Chairman, House Committee on Information, Security and Strategy.

He had been laid to rest at the Ikoyi Cemetery in Lagos on Friday evening.
