The management of the University of Lagos, (UNILAG) has reacted to a report that the crew of Air Peace that brought into the country the Chinese medical team were quarantined on its campus, describing it as fake news.
According to the institution, in a statement signed by an Principal Assistant Registrar on Tuesday, Mrs. Taiwo Oloyede, nothing of such happened.
The statement reads: “The University of Lagos (UNILAG) Management wishes to inform members of the University community and the general public that contrary to the publication entitled, “Chinese doctors’ flight: How three airline crew members ‘disappeared’ from Lagos quarantine centre” by a traditional medium dated Sunday, April 12, 2020, the airline crew members that conveyed the Chinese doctors visiting the country to lend medical aid, are not being quarantined in the University of Lagos campus.
According to the report, “On arriving the Scholars Lodge at the University of Lagos where the state government had prepared for the crew to be quarantine around 2 am, another debate ensued over the type of the apartment provided.” This information is false. The flight crew members were not brought to the University’s Scholars Hostel.
“In light of the above, members of the University community and the general public are enjoined to beware of fake news and keep observing precautionary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
“Management wishes the country and the world at large quick recovery from this pandemic and a timely return to normalcy.”
