Senator Dino Melaye has claimed that indeed there's COVID-19 in Kogi state.
His claims came among a face-off between the Kogi state government and the Nigerian Center for Disease Control (NCDC), after the agency announced two cases in the state.
Kogi State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Kingsley Fanwo, persists that the state remains COVID-19 free.
Yet, Melaye in a statement on Saturday, said he knows one of the patient.
One of the cases is from Kabba and the victim is personally known to me. I cannot be part of those who will play politics with the lives of my people.
Kogi State government must come down from her imaginary high horse and start contact tracing to help curtail the spread, part of the statement read.
