BREAKING: Doctors Flee As Gunmen Disrupt COVID-19 Meeting At Federal Medical Centre In Lokoja

Gunmen suspected to be sponsored by the Kogi State Government, on Wednesday, disrupted a COVID-19 press conference at Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja, leaving medical practitioners fleeing in different directions.

The press conference, Tina’s HotSpot gathered, was to pressure the Federal Government into establishing a COVID-19 screening centre in the state.

It was learnt that the gunmen shot sporadically into the air to scare people away, then went to the records and admin department where they seized laptops and destroyed a few things. They ransacked the Medical Director’s office, too.

Governor Yahaya Bello at a prayer session for the late Nasir Ajana, Kogi Chief Judge,on Tuesday, had said that COVID-19 was created to shorten the lifestyle of the people.

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control has so far announced three cases of COVID-19 in Kogi but the state government has insisted that the state was free of the disease.
