A sixty-year-old US citizen, Babra Laurilliard who was invited by her Nigerian lover to the country has reportedly died of Coronavirus in Warri, Delta State.
The deceased came into Nigeria on the invitation of her boyfriend who kept her in a hotel in Warri before transferring her to another hotel where she died, it was learned, Daily Post reports.
It was gathered that before the deceased’s death she coughed profusely and had difficulty in breathing and stooling.
She was rushed to an undisclosed hospital but her condition deteriorated just as she gave up the ghost.
When contacted for comments, the Delta State Commissioner of Police, CP Mohammed Hafiz Inuwa confirmed the report.
CP Inuwa said,
“She’s a US Citizen. She came to Nigeria. She’s over 60years. She’s a friend to one of the Nigerian boys. She visited him in Nigeria. He kept her in a hotel in Warri before transferring her to that hotel around Orerokpe side.
“While they were together for about a week, the woman was coughing and having difficulty in breathing as well as having difficulty in stooling.
” So, they took her to the hospital yesterday where her condition became worse and eventually, she gave up. That her so-called boyfriend is now with the police in Orerokpe.”
While noting that he called the Commissioner for Health in Delta State to contact the NCDC given the symptoms the deceased gave before she died, CP Inuwa, however, warned Policemen to be very careful with the manner they deal with the said boyfriend so as not to fall victims and get infected with the dreaded Coronavirus.
