• ‘She lied, my son didn’t test positive for COVID-19’

      A domestic worker, Oyindamola Alexander, has lost her job while being treated for the coronavirus disease, which she claimed to have contracted from her boss’ son. Our correspondent learnt that while Oyindamola was receiving treatment at the Lagos isolation centre in Onikan, the boss, who is a popular actress, Caroline Danjuma, allegedly threatened to arrest her.

     Oyindamola, who was discharged on April 20 after testing negative, said she was depressed by the allegations made against her by the celebrity, who also threatened to sue her over a missing laptop. The victim alleged that her ordeal started after Danjuma’s 11-year-old son returned from a high risk country, the United Kingdom, and started manifesting symptoms of COVID-19. She stated that the boy’s parents, who were alarmed, contacted officials of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, who tested him and confirmed the positive status.

     Oyindamola, a graduate of English and Literary Studies from the University of Ado Ekiti, said the health workers conducted tests on everyone in the house and she was among those who tested positive. The 33-year-old explained that she was subsequently taken to the Onikan isolation and treatment centre. Narrating the incident, she said, “When Danjuma employed me on March 11, 2020,, she said I would supervise her domestic workers. She had a cleaner, a washer man, a driver and a cook. She said she noticed that things were not being properly done and she wanted me to coordinate them. A week to the lockdown, she asked if I had money for my family to stock up food. My parents are in Ekiti and my husband is in Benin, though we have some misunderstanding. I told her that I had yet to send money to them, but I believe that they would cope somehow. She said she would give me some money to help them. She then gave me N30,000 for which I was grateful. She never said it was my salary.”

“I habe suffered,my children must not” – Small doctor.

In line with recent happenings in the country, one thing Nigerians demanded relentlessly was that President Muhammadu Buhari addressed them.

After days of asking, he eventually did on October 22, and his speech left a trail of mixed reactions from nationals. Nigerian artiste Small Doctor was one of the disappointed bunch. According to the musician, Buhari’s nationwide broadcast left him numb. He stated that he has suffered as a Nigerian but his children must not go through the same experience.

He said:

“That speech Just Made me go numb. I have suffered, my kids must not suffer. #EndsSARS #EndBuhari.”
