Reno Omokri has queried the decision to keep the identity of the Italian man who brought Coronavirus to Nigeria.
In a post made on social media, Reno Omokri compared the case of the Italian man with Coronavirus and that of Patrick Sawyer who brought Ebola into the country in 2014, asking why the identity of one was made public while the other is yet to be released.
A simple question: Why was the identity of Patrick Sawyer, the index case of #Ebola in Nigeria, released, while that of the Italian index case of #COVID19 is not? It is the same scenario. Was Sawyer less of a human being than this anonymous Italian? Would the identity of a Nigerian, who introduced such to Italy, be kept secret? A Nigerian player in the Italian league, Serie C, Paul Akpan Udoh, contracted corona virus in Italy, and his identity was released by the Italian authorities. If we released Patrick Sawyer’s identity over Ebola, why are we giving this Italian anonymity?
He joins the voices of several other Nigerians demanding for the release of the identity of the idex case of coronavirus patient in Nigeria.
