An arrested clubber, Ipadeola Oriyomi, says the police have denied him access to an isolation centre after he tested positive for COVID-19.
Oriyomi who cried out on social media said he was arrested at a nightclub in Victoria Island by men of the Maroko Police Station in Lagos.
He added that he was later transferred to Oshodi Taskforce the next day, Monday, where he was said to have tested positive for covid-19.
“They took us to Maroko Police Station where we slept overnight before they transferred us to Oshodi Taskforce.
“I have been in Oshodi Taskforce since Monday. They tested us yesterday for COVID-19. The test came out today and it shows I’m positive,” Oriyomi shared on Instagram.
Oriyomi said he was thrown right back into the cell instead of being isolated or taken to an isolation centre for COVID-19 infected persons.
The social media influencer who pleaded with authorities concerning his case said the decision to throw him back into the cell endangers his life and the people inside the cell with him.
