Covid-19 Test: Former Borno Gov., Sheriff On The Run, After Dodging NCDC Officials

A former governor of Borno State, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff is reportedly on the run to avoid being tested of the ravaging pandemic, the Covid-19.

A report according to Sahara Reporters suggests that Ali Modu Sheriff, refused to make himself available for COVID-19 test despite meeting two prominent citizens of the state, who died of the virus recently.
 member of the state prevention and response team said the former governor was one of the contacts being traced and linked up with late former governor, Mohammed Goni, and Shehu of Bama, Alhaji Kyari Elkanemi, who both died of the virus.
Both Goni and Elkanemi had had last week attended the funeral of Sheriff’s late father, Galadima Modu Sheriff, in Maiduguri where social distancing rules were broken by attendees.
Also, during the three days of mourning, they were said to have had meetings with Sheriff at his father’s residence and his private residence in GRA Maiduguri.
But a source close to the former governor said he had fled to Abuja to avoid health officials especially from the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control and the state’s COVID-19 prevention and team from taking his sample for test.
