The story started when a relative of a NYSC Corps member asked for help, calling Nigerians to alert authorities about her cousin who just returned from the United Kingdom to serve in Ekiti state. Newsmag.com.ng reports.
And then she continued, revealed he has not eaten for a day
Then she posted videos of her cousin inside an ambulance and his isolation room
The Osun state government later denied reports, see the statement below;
“Coronavirus: The story making the rounds about a certain man raising the alarm that his cousin is being kept in a poor isolation centre in Osun is not true. At the moment, we do not have such a case in Osun and we pray not to have it. Our people should remain calm.
Purveyors of fake news should also desist from spreading falsehood so as not to create unnecessary panic among the people.
Chief Press Secretary to the governor,
State of Osun “
