The Command Public Relations Officer, DSP Anjuguri Manza, who paraded the 5 suspects prior to newsmen, offered their names as Peggy Shandi (M), Abayomi Adedoyin (M), David Gold Enemigin (M) Priscilla AJesola (F) and Jacob Oji (M).

According to Manza, the suspects declared to be playing out a script about the infection without the understanding or permission of the appropriate authorities of the FCTA.


Vanguard reports that the supposed pranksters had actually apparently gone to the Wuse District Hospital declaring that a person of them had actually been contaminated with the Coronavirus, an action which caused stress and confusion in addition to an interruption of regular health service shipment at the medical facility.

The police representative stated examinations into the activities of the suspects were continuous.
