The Nigeria Center for Disease Control NCDC this morning, announced the first death from Coronavirus in Nigeria.

The victim was identified as 67 year old former PPMC boss, Suleiman Achimugu.

A family source who confirmed Achimugu’s passing to some news platform, accused the NCDC of negligence in the handling of the deceased. The family source was by quoted Sahara Reporters to have said

“NCDC officials came to the house and took his blood specimen. Even though it tested positive, they never got back to us until he died at a hospital in Gwagwalada. We are all currently under quarantine in the house.”

The NCDC has now reacted to the claim. In a tweet posted on its official handle, the agency said it is not responsible for the management of individual cases as this is the responsibility of states and treatment centers.
