According to Punch Newspapers, the Abuja police have arrested five persons for falsely claiming that they had contracted the dreaded coronavirus disease.
They were said to have stormed the Wuse District Hospital claiming that one of them had been infected by coronavirus. The incident reportedly sparked panic and confusion and also disrupted normal health service delivery at the hospital.
Parading the suspects at the Wuse Zone 3 Divisional Police Station on Saturday, the FCT police spokesman, DSP Anjuguri Manza told the Newspaper that the suspects claimed to be “playing out a script about the virus” without the knowledge or authorisation of the relevant authorities of the FCTA.
He said, “The FCT police command is still investigating the case and on conclusion, the suspects will be arraigned in court.”
