Kwara confirms two coronavirus cases


EFCC cautions against sham DIY test, others

Kwara State Technical Committee on COVID-19 has confirmed two cases of coronavirus in the state. One is the wife of the United Kingdom (UK) returnee, who died last Thursday at University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) and the other also a UK returnee.

This was disclosed by Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Rafiu Ajakaye, after the government received official confirmation of test results from the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) in Ibadan.

The government said it would address a news conference today at 11a.m. to give details and further measures being taken to tackle the disease.

Meanwhile, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has cautioned members of the public against emerging online tactics by internet fraudsters in the wake of the donations arising from the dreaded COVID-19 pandemic.

The acting chairman, Ibrahim Magu, who disclosed the development yesterday in Abuja, stated that the caution became necessary in view of the increasing number of complaints received by the commission from unsuspecting Nigerians that fell prey to the antics of fraudsters.
