It is another sad day for a family in Nigeria after their 34-year-old son, Chinedu Ekwunife, who is an engineer, was announced dead as a result of COVID-19.
Engineer Chinedu died in the United States of America, a country heavily ravaged by COVID-19, also known as coronavirus.
Chinedu was described as a first-class software engineer, who was greatly admired for his intellect and subtle nature.
Chinedu's death occurred weeks after the Nigerian government commenced evacuation of the country's citizens from some countries.
In April 2020, Legit.ng had reported that stranded Nigerians in the United Kingdom sent a save-our-soul message to the federal government asking that they be evacuated from the foreign land.
The stranded Nigerians reportedly expressed great frustration over how their evacuation was being delayed by the federal government.
The Nigerians had said that the government did not have the right to keep its citizens out of the country for whatever reason, according to a statement released by Olajoke Adesipe, a representative of the Nigerians, who noted that most of them are negative for coronavirus.
In May 2020, the United States of America also evacuated 270 of its citizens from Nigeria following the devastation still being wrecked by coronavirus on the people of the world.
The evacuation was announced by the U.S. Mission in Nigeria on Twitter on Wednesday, May 6. "Another U.S. repatriation flight departed Lagos today with 270 American citizens aboard. Great job by the Consulate Lagos team and our Nigerian partners!. We wish all of the passengers a safe flight as they rejoin family and friends. Stay Healthy," US Mission tweeted.
Meanwhile, as the world continues to search for solutions to the COVID-19 pandemic, a Nigerian recently latched on the opportunity to make the world proud as he discovered how to become a chief executive officer from an idea he conceptualised.
A young man, @Swaggzeez1, brought his invention to Twitter without categorically saying if he was the one behind the idea.
