Ekiti To Sanction Soldier's Wife Who Sneaked In With COVID-19 Despite Lockdown


The Ekiti State Government has said the wife of a soldier who brought Covid-19 disease from Katsina state despite prohibition of interstate movements in the state, would be sanctioned accordingly.

The woman who came to visit her husband, working in Oye-Ekiti, was discovered to have contracted the virus after her husband alerted the task force when she started manifesting symptoms.

The Commissioner for Health, Dr. Mojisola Yaya-Kolade, who spoke in Ado Ekiti, on Wednesday said the woman who came to visit her husband at a time there was a lockdown had committed an offence, which she said flagrantly violated the law of the state.

“Though, it was the husband who alerted us, but it was an offence against the state and the Ministry of Justice will take appropriate actions against her at the right time”, she said.

The Commissioner added that the woman’s husband, who was the only main contact has been quarantined for 14 days in accordance with the World Health Organisation’s guidelines

“Let me also tell the public that all the patients in the isolation centre are stable and responding to treatment. And those who are persistently positive to testing are still being kept. With the level we have gone, we have nothing to worry about."
