Passenger Coughs, Dies At Checkpoint In Osun/oyo Boundary by kolafolabi(m): 5:24am On Apr 21, 2020
Police operatives and some medical personnel at Osun/Oyo border on Sunday evening reportedly intercepted a car, said to have conveyed a sick man, who eventually died while being checked.

The vehicle, it was learnt, was stopped at Odo Oba, Iwo, an entry point to Osun from Oyo State while attempting to enter Osun State.

The car was said to have left Ibadan for an undisclosed destination, when it ran into a police checkpoint which stopped the vehicle and demanded explanation.

While being interrogated, one of the occupants, believed to be sick, suddenly started coughing and died on the spot.

The chairman, Iwo Local Government, Raji Kamoru, who spoke to our correspondent, said policemen and health personnel stationed at the checkpoint were not convinced with the explanation of the occupants of the vehicle, when they stopped them.

He said when the team at the checkpoint told the occupants of the vehicle that they could not proceed, one of the occupants said to be sick suddenly started coughing and he died.

“They stopped the vehicle coming from Ibadan. One of the passengers started coughing and he died.

“The security men asked them some questions and they could not give a satisfactory explanation about where they were going. Immediately we were informed, myself and the DPO had to turn them back.

“In the first instance, when we told them to return to where they were coming from, they hid in the bush. But we found them and escorted them to the boundary and handed them over to policemen at Iyana Offa, Oyo State. They did not tell us where they were coming from and their destination,” Kamoru said.

The Police Public Relations Officer for Osun Command, Yemisi Opalola, confirmed that police personnel intercepted a vehicle carrying a corpse around Odo Oba area, Iwo.

She said a Mazda 323 car with number plate KFS 409 EH, driven by one Ismaila Ademola, was heading towards Iwo from Ibadan, adding that the medical team at the checkpoint suspected the deceased passenger might be a COVID-19 patient.

Opalola said, “The security team led by Iwo Local Government chairman had to escort the vehicle back to Iyana Offa and handed them over to a police division in Oyo Command.”

She maintained that the state Commissioner of Police, Johnson Kokumo, had directed closer monitoring of boundary communities to ensure total compliance with the lockdown order by the state government.

Pray it's not coronavirus, cos everyone in that vehicle needs to be quarantined,
including the police officers, especially if they were not on face masks.

This disease has already spread to all the nooks and corner of this country. The more they ramp up testing, the more cases they'll discover.

The only option right now is to stay safe until a vaccine or cure is found.

undecided


We definitely cant manage a pandemic like Covid 19 in Nigeria, many would die without making it to NCDC

for now we await the report of investigation into spike in death rate in Kano as ordered by Ganduje, i pray the autopsy doesn't show corona because if it does then the North should brace up for big time calamity

Sounds like heart failure. Not every cough is caused by the virus.It may not necessarily be Corona Virus but everyone needs to stay safe still.

So serious, let's just believe that it is his time to die, everybody is sick, but we are just managing only God can heal every one of us, thanks God they did not accuse coronavirus of this, may his gentle soul rest in perfect peace. Leaving an heritage behind is good especially for Pele with extended family, in view of that get yourself an apartment of your own in a very accessible location by clicking HERITAGE>>> and you soul will rest perfectly after your death, Nowadays i domt like fighting people reason being that you can just touch a person during the the course of the fight and he will faint and due, and I know nobody will believe that you did not kill him or her, hence leading to life imprisonment, and I pray that till I die, I will never visit the place in my life.

This report is confusing and unorganised. At a stage the police stopped them and a man was coughing and died, later police saw a vehicle conveying corpse... when the man could be having TB... covid-19 is not the only killer disease in the world please!
