There are also reports of NCDC rejecting material donations and asking that they are converted into cash.

With all of the news flying around, many Nigerians have now asked the government to end the lockdown completely. This is because the pandemic is being politicised, NCDC is not being honest with the figures and still, businesses are collapsing and many people losing their employment and means of livelihood.

This video shows women who claim to have been abandoned in an isolation centre for long without any proper information to the progress of the treatment. As they are not sick, they are asking to be allowed to go home to their families.
