Senator Dino Melaye has claimed that there are indeed COVID-19 cases in Kogi State.

His allegations came amid a face-off between the Kogi State government and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) after the agency announced two cases in the state.

Kogi State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Kingsley Fanwo, insisted that the state remains COVID-19 free.

However, Melaye in a statement on Saturday, said he knows one of the patients.

“One of the cases is from Kabba and the victim is personally known to me. I cannot be part of those who will play politics with the lives of my people.

“Kogi State government must come down from her imaginary high horse and start contact tracing to help curtail the spread,” part of the statement read.
