The state Commissioner of Health, Professor Akin Abayomi, disclosed this on his Twitter page on Sunday. He wrote:

”3 of the returnees recently evacuated from Dubai have tested positive for #COVID19 infection following #COVID19 test conducted on them. Those affected have been admitted to @followlasg #COVID19 care centre for appropriate treatment protocols.”

KanyiDaily recalls that during a media briefing on Tuesday, Abayomi announced that a 32-year-old Nigerian man who was among those recently evacuated from Dubai, died of coronavirus infection in Lagos.

The media briefing sparked protest among other Dubai returnees who questioned the government for telling the press on Tuesday that one of them died of Covid-19.

Abayomi later retracted his claim saying a gold standard coronavirus test carried out on the deceased returned negative.
