COVID-19: Ekiti State Govt to prosecute Army officer’s wife

The Ekiti State Government has disclosed that the wife of a military officer who imported COVID-19 into the State will be prosecuted at the right time.

Dr. Mojisola Yaya-Kolade, the State’s Commissioner for Health, disclosed that the wife of the Army Officer will be prosecuted for defying the lockdown order of the State.

Addressing a press conference yesterday, the Commissioner said the government will take action against the woman despite the fact that her husband noticed her condition and raised an alert.

Yaya-Kolade said: “Though it was the husband who alerted us, it is an offence against the State and the Ministry of Justice will take appropriate actions against her at the right time.”

The Commissioner also disclosed that the officer has been quarantined for two weeks in line with the World Health Organisation guidelines.

Yaya-Kolade said the officer was the woman’s only contact since she arrived in the State.

SPLASHNEWS recalls that the woman had in the midst of the lockdown arrived from Katsina State to visit her husband serving in Ekiti State.

The husband alerted the Ekiti State Government to the condition of his wife.

According to the Commissioner, the latest confirmation had brought COVID-19 patients in the State to 12.

  1. You people that are shouting no one is above the law what about the Italian man that generated it in the first place, what about the governments that left the borders open, what about the rich ones rhat we’re still allowed to travel then despite the fact that the virus was present or what if it had been the governor’s wife or his kids or even one of the house of reps that brought it would they still have been prosecuted? Let us think so it’s only the commoners that are allowed to suffer for their coveteousness, stupidity and selfish interest. You people are now shouting no one is above the law so its only the governments that are above the law when they’ve turned the whole crises into money making business, today accountant generals office will burn tomorrow it’s the CBN the next day it’s goats that are eating money…….
