Due to the lockdown in the state, vehicles have become scarce making movement difficult.
Oyigbo stated that the lockdown will lead to the death of a lot of people as sickness and hunger continues to claim the lives of people.
She wrote: "Watch how this coronavirus lockdown might be leading to death in Rivers State. The girl you see in the video was almost dying her husband had to carry her on his back for long because there is no vehicle on the road.
She almost fainted on the road, I couldn’t record that part because I’m the only one driving. Had to help them to my hospital. Last time, I saw a more severe case where I still drove them to my hospital free of charge where we gave the girl emergency oxygen she was a second away from death.
God save us in this Rivers state. Many sick people will die at home. If hunger does not kill other sicknesses will because you can’t go out. God save us in Rivers State."
