A video of the patients complaining bitterly in their Isolation center was posted online SaharaReporters earlier today.
However in a statement released, the state government said the video is an attempt to water down the frantic efforts the government is making towards combating the pandemic.

According to the state government, it was a female patient and her family members who were protesting as they were against her being isolated in the center.
“There are two toilet facilities, one for females and one for Males. The isolation center has 24 hours of electricity, having been connected to a 33KVA and standby generator.
The relations of the patient did not want the woman to be quarantined. So, they started making trouble, demanding her release. Out of mischief, they also went on to do a video in order to discredit the efforts of the state government.
“However, in line with the guidelines by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, both the woman and her brothers have been quarantined.”

The Task Force also reiterated that the woman who naturally should not have been in Niger State because she tested positive for Coronavirus, decided to leave Kano state on her own accord to seek medical attention in the state.
“Her reason for coming to Niger State according to her was because of her inability to access health care services in Kano State. So, she decided to contravene Niger COVID-19 Order and came back to Suleja, Niger state, but for the alertness of good-spirited individuals who raised an alarm, she was immediately picked up. Her relations however followed from Suleja in protest down to Minna,” the Task Force cleared.
The state government says it has well equipped Isolation/Quarantine Centres and those who are being quarantined are well taken care of.
