Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported about another Nigerian who is working hard to combat the shortage of facemasks. She is an Aba tailor identified as Jacinthia Kakaide.

The noble thing about her effort is that she is producing and giving face masks out for free so that the people of Umuatako Community in Aba can protect themselves against coronavirus.

In speaking with a Daily Trust reporter, Kakaide said she started the production when she realised that not many in her community are buoyant enough to buy a face mask.
