COVID-19: Kogi State Index Case Known To Me — Sen Melaye

Senator Dino Melaye has said that Covid-19 case in Kogi state is real and authentic, even as the family confirmed the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC)’s position on matter.

In a press statement on Saturday, the former senator who represented Kogi west senatorial district of the state noted that the index case from Kabba is personally known to him.
“I want to announce that the covid-19 case in Kogi is real and authentic and can not understand why any responsible government will want to deny and invariably kill her citizens.
“One of the cases is from Kabba and the victim is personally known to me. I cannot be part of those who will play politics with the lives of my people.
“Covid-19 is real but not a death sentence if handled early enough. Family members of the Kabba victim who got referral to Abuja from Federal Medical Center in Lokoja and all those who had contact with him should please surrender themselves for test so as to curtail the spreed.
“Kogi State government must come down from her imaginary high horse and start contact tracing to help curtail the spread.
