Cousin Of Popular writer and fashion stylist, Ayishat Akanbi has allegedly became the first Nigerian to die of Coronavirus COVID-19.
In a now deleted Twitter post, Ayishat said her cousin died on Friday morning in London after suffering from the effect of the virus that has affected over 120,000 and caused thousands of deaths across the world.
She warned blacks to disregard the claim that coronavirus cannot affect them because her cousin, who is a medical doctor, has died as a result of the virus.
Ayishat wrote: “My cousin who is a doctor and in her early 30s died of coronavirus this morning for anyone irresponsible enough to think black people are immune.”
KanyiDaily had reported that the 2nd coronavirus patient was among those kept in isolation after having contact with the Italian man who brought the deadly disease to Nigeria.
