COVID-19: Kogi COVID-19 Index Case Discharged. by GIdiata(m): 2:11am On Jun 08, 2020
CHIEF Imam of Kabba, Sheikh Abubakar Ejibunu, said to be the index case of COVID-19 in Kogi State has been discharged from the National Hospital, Abuja, The PUNCH has learnt.

Our correspondent gathered that he was discharged on Friday after testing negative for three consecutive times last week. Ejibunu was discharged on Friday evening at about 4pm and now resting in preparation to be brought to Kabba, his home town, to reunite with his family members.

A family member, who confirmed this to our Correspondent on Sunday morning, said that the Chief Imam was currently taking his rest with a family member in Gwagwalada, but
declined the request of this reporter to speak directly with him .

“ I will not want to be drawn into the controversy, but I am very sure that the Chief Imam is now hale and hearty and waiting to be reunited with his family anytime from now, ” he
said.

Recall that Sheikh Ejibunu was moved from the Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja to the National Hospital two weeks ago where he was allegedly diagnosed and confirmed by the National Centre for Disease Control to be positive with the virus.

The state government immediately rebuffed the claim, saying NCDC did not carry along the State Ministry of Health on the series of tests conducted on the patient and therefore reiterated that the state was COVID-19 free.
