Susan Idoko-Okpe, the alleged coronavirus index case in Benue State has been discharged from isolation centre.
This came barely 24 hours after her children had called on the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC), to release their mum.
Sahara Reporters reports that Mrs. Idoko was released from the Abuja isolation center after 54 days of ”unjust quarantine on Wednesday evening.’
She was earlier held in Makurdi, Benue State capital, but due to her outcry, she was later moved to Abuja where she was isolated.
Mrs. Okpe was held behind closed-door for 54 days after it was reported that she had contracted the deadly virus.
She returned from the United Kingdom to attend the burial of her mother in Otukpa before she was whisked away to an isolation centre by the state government.
However, despite not taking any medication, the UK-returnee was still hale and hearty until her freedom on Wednesday night.
Susan, who is a younger sister to Steve Lawani, former Deputy Governor of Benue State, had accused the Idoma community of abandoning her.
