Kogi State Governor Lifts Lockdown In LGA, Insists State Is COVID-19 Free

Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello OnoBello

The Government of Kogi state has lifted the lockdown imposed on Kabba-Bunu Local Government Area of the state over suspected cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The update was disclosed by Governor Yahaya Bello at the Government House in Lokoja, where he said the decision of lifting the lockdown in the local government area was reached after samples which were tested came back negative.

The Governor who insisted that Kogi state still  remains a COVID-19-free state, urged residents of the state to observe protocols of the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) to curb the spread of the disease.

This is coming days after the NCDC announced that two Coronavirus cases were confirmed in the state. Former Senator, Dino Melaye also confirmed this by revealing that he knows one of the patients. Recall that Ahmad Ejibunu, Chief Imam of Kabba, and one of his aides had tested positive for the disease.

Ejibunu, who was transferred to Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja from Kabba Specialist Hospital, was eventually referred to the National Hospital, Abuja, where he was diagnosed with the disease.

The Kogi State Government rejected the results and accused the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control of perpetrating fraud.
