Evacuee Nigerian Dies
A young male Nigeria Citizen has died in Lagos State 7days after his evacuation from the United Arab Emirate, Dubai.
The death of the Dubai evacuee said to be a 32-year-old male was announced by the Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Professor Akin Abayomi on his official Twitter handle.
The deceased was said to have died after suffering from complications from Coronavirus which was worsened by the severe underlining illness.
“ The deceased recently returned from Dubai with severe underlying health condition following the evacuation of Nigerians in foreign countries by @DigiCommsNG.”
It would be recalled that 256 Nigerians returned to Nigeria recently after being stranded overseas due to the travel ban and lockdown across some countries in the world.
The death of this Dubai returnee brings the Coronavirus related death in Lagos State to 34 while the state remains Nigeria’s epic centre of the virus.
More Nigerians are voluntarily applying for evacuation in different countries across the world as the government had since commenced evacuations for its citizens.
