According reports, some men of the underworld disguised as members of the COVID 19 medical team attempted to make entrance into a private residence in Ikoyi.

They repeatedly instructed the guard to open the Main Gate.
“According to the guard’s description, two or three of them were wearing PPE, masks and gloves, and two in army uniform with masks and gloves”.
“Though the guard was a bit shaken, he made it clear to them that the landlord himself would have to personally instruct him to open the gate before he can do so.”
“If they really have to take a CoronaVirus patient, they have to wait outside till the morning”.
“As the guard did not open the gate, they said they would come back later in the morning”.
“Surprisingly no one came in the morning to get the supposed Coronavirus patient, because there was really no Coronavirus patient in the building”.
“So it is clear that those who came to the house to take the Coronavirus patient were thieves!”
“The entire building was saved from an unpleasant incident due to the guard’s intelligence”.
