A kinsman of the deceased who spoke to punch correspondent on condition of anonymity had said the community had not been thrown into panic since Osuagwu’s death because he did not spend much time in the village.

“The deceased did not spend much time at home before he went back to Abuja where he tested positive for coronavirus and later died. So, we are not afraid of the outbreak of the disease in our village,” he said.

Investigation revealed that 40 contacts are already in self-isolation in various destinations in the Federal Capital Territory, and samples from the wife and son of the deceased had been sent for testing.
