Yesterday in Niger state isolation centre some suspected COVID-19 patients receiving treatment at a government facility in Minna, the state capital, threatened to discharge themselves over poor treatment.
In a video going viral online, some of the patients expressed anger at the situation, saying they were not comfortable with their feeding arrangement.
They however, requested to be allowed to be in their homes instead of being left to die of hunger at the isolation facility.
Meanwhile, there is tension in the state over the purported escape of a woman from an isolation centre.
It will be recalled that some covid19 patients protested in Gombe state due to poor treatment too.
