“Let Our Mother Go” – Children of Benue COVID-19 Index Case Cry Out
After almost two months in Isolation for allegedly testing positive to coronavirus, the children of Susan Idoko Okpe, the Benue state COVID-19 index case, have called on the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC), to release their mum who has been in the Abuja Isolation center for 57 days now.
Recall that Idoko has been having a faceoff with the government since she was diagnosed with the deadly virus.
Days ago, Idoko disclosed that she has been in isolation for weeks now without showing any symptoms of the disease and insisted that she does not have the virus.
Reacting to the development, the Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire on Wednesday said Mrs. Idoko had refused to let the NCDC and other medical personnel take her samples so they can do a final test on her before she is discharged. Read here.
In separate posts via their Instagram pages, the children of Mrs.Okpe have cried out, demanding the immediate release of their mother.
