Benue COVID-19 Index Case Threatens To Sue NCDC If She Is Not Released Within 7 Days

Benue state COVID-19 index case, Susan Idoko, has just threatened to sue NCDC if she is not released from the isolation center within the next 7 days.

According to reports, she has been having arguments with the government since she was diagnosed with the virus. She has spent 53 days in the isolation center and still yet has not showed any symptoms of the virus and she continues to insist that she does not have the virus.

When questioned the Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire  said that she had refused to let the NCDC or any other medical personnel take samples from her to do a final test to ascertain if she is free of the virus or not in order for her to be discharged.

While addressing the press on Friday in Abuja, her lawyer Mr. Steven Eke said that she had lost confidence in the abilities of the NCDC and hence has demanded that an independent test be conducted by the WHO under the supervision of the British High Commission and her very own personal physician.

Her lawyer also said that her continuous detention at the isolation center is violating her fundamental human rights and that she will go to court if it continues.

However the Minister of Health at the presidential task force daily press briefing in Abuja on Friday 14th May said that, he has finally convinced Mrs. Idoko to take the test and that sample has been taken and that the result will be out in a few days.
