Some days ago, Sydney Talker, a Nigerian Instagram comedian, revealed that the NCDC failed to reach out to him to run a test after he had contacted them having allegedly come down with the novel Coronavirus

In the videos he posted on his social media account, he was seen going to different hospitals, struggling to breathe and in pain.

Earlier, some twitter medic influencers and users called him out on the account that he had pulled a prank and failed to publicize the result of his test.

This prompted him to the reveal his results which turned negative.

He expressed gratitude to everyone who had prayed for him and wondered why anyone would think he would play a prank at the expense of his life.

In his words:
“My Test Results just got in from Lagos State Ministry of Health and thankfully it is NEGATIVE.

To those who felt this was a PRANK or CLOUT CHASING, I have just one question ”Why would I chase clout at the expense of my life?”

To everyone who prayed for me in my weakest moment and for quick recovery, I pray that on the day you are in distress may you also find help and recieve prayers IJN Amen

I love you all & I promise I will be back and better soonest
