According to the Cable News (see original article HERE), “The victim, Suleiman Achimugu, former managing director of the Petroleum Products Marketing Company (PPMC), died at 2am this Monday morning, March 23, 2020.
The deceased, an indigene of Kogi state, was said to have returned from the United Kingdom two weeks ago.
He was said to have started exhibiting the symptoms of the virus on Tuesday and the case was reported to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) who took his blood specimen for a test.
He tested positive and was evacuated to the specialist hospital, Gwagwalada in Abuja but died while receiving treatment.
According to a source, his family members are reportedly under quarantine in their house”.
There are unverified allegations that the NCDC didn’t return with the test results until it was almost too late, which would explain why he was rushed to the hospital just last night.
Vanguard News online reported ”As of yesterday afternoon, he was coughing profusely. So they called the NCDC to inquire about his results. It turned out positive.They picked him up and rushed him to Gwagwalada.“He died at 2am this morning. His family are currently under quarantine in their house. The NCDC will handle the burial.”An enquiry sent to NCDC for official confirmation was yet to be replied to at the time of sending this report” see reference HERE
It is time to take precautionary measures, if we haven’t done so already. May God grant him eternal repose. Amen.
