A Nigerian has alerted that he picked the Italian confirmed to be infected with Coronavirus in Lagos, Nigeria. 

The citizen gave his name as Olugbenga Bodunrin.

He made the disclosure Friday morning on Twitter via his handle: boldyemi @boldjohnson07.

The man tweeted: “I had contact with the Italian citizen the day before yesterday. Am an uber driver i picked him at the airport. We talk, gist and laugh together. We even dine together. My name is Olugbenga Bodunrin. 08136464040.”

In a phone conversation with DAILY POST, Bodunrin said he has been contacted by the authorities.

He said officials from the Lagos State Government called him after the tweet.

“They said I should go to a hospital at Iyana Iba, I am on my way there now”, Bodunrin said.

The government announced that the first case of coronavirus in Nigeria was recorded on February 27, 2020.

The disease broke out in Wuhan, China in December 2019 and has hit over 40 countries and caused no fewer than 3,000 deaths.
