Newsflash247 had earlier reported that a Nigerian father created a dramatic scene with his son who recently returned home from Lagos, which is the current epicenter of Coronavirus in the country.
The man who is reportedly a retired Road Safety officer had asked his son to stay back in Lagos till the Coronavirus outbreak is curbed, but he came home in spite of his warning.
Upon arriving Ekiti from Lagos State, the boy’s father insisted that he must get tested for Coronavirus or get isolated for 14 days before being allowed into his house.
He added that he doesn’t want to be part of those that will complicate Coronavirus issues in Ekiti state just like the 29-year-old pregnant community health worker who died from Coronavirus after sneaking into the state from Lagos state where she works.
