A Nigerian lady identified as Chinyere Oranugo on micro blogging platform, Twitter, has extended her gratitude to members of the internet community for heeding her call for help on the social media platform.
During the early hours of Wednesday, March 18, Oranugo took to her page claiming that her cousin who returned from the UK since January 26, for NYSC in Ekiti state, was quarantined after he started coughing, and sent to Osun state.
According to her, the young man was not fed and he was also conveyed in an unhealthy ambulance.

“My cousin who schooled in the Uk and returned home 26/01/2020 to serve in the NYSC was posted to Ekiti state for his orientation and he’s down with cough so has been quarantined and sent to Osun state, but he’s not been fed since yesterday that he’s been quarantined and he’s complaining of dizziness.
Not only that, he was carried like a waybill in a poorly kept ambulance. It’s almost as if they want him dead so a case will be established,” her tweet read.
She urged Nigerians on Twitter to call on the authorities to look into the matter and give her cousin the appropriate care.

She said: “My heart is full of joy for my family but sad and heavy for our country Nigeria. My cousin who had cough and sought medicare at the Ekiti State NYSC camp, quarantined and excessively poorly treated through to carrying out a test has been confirmed negative.”
