The Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, on Tuesday April 14th, denied her claim, saying she has been tested twice for the virus and it came back positive but she has not shown any symptom of the viral disease.
The minister said she cannot be released because the disease is infectious and some patients remain asymptomatic. He said a third test would be carried out on her soon and if it comes back negative, she would be discharged.
In a chat with Channels TV from the Abuja Isolation center, Okpe said she has not been treated since arriving the Abuja Isolation center.
According to her, she is not sick. She added that she doesn’t trust Nigerian doctors and is demanding they allow her return to the UK.
”I am not sick, I am being held here. I came in formy mum’s burial butbecause of this lockdown, it’s being postponed. If the burial is not holding let me go and meet my children in London. I am not sick.”
