The management of the University of Ilorin has debunked insinuations that some of their foreign students tested positive to COVID 19.
The Chairman of the Committee on the Prevention of Coronavirus in the school, Dr. Idayat Adenike Durotoye, while speaking with journalist on a radio programme on Thursday debunked the insinuation of the spread of the dreaded virus in the University.
The distinguished scholar of medicine, who also lectures at the Department of Hermetology, College of Health Sciences, University of Ilorin, said that the stories going round that some students of the University have tested positive to the disease was baseless, ridiculous untrue and a figment of imagination of agents of darkness who are out to spread panic and possibly create tension where there is none.
She said there was never a time she or any member of the Anti-Coronavirus Committee granted any press interview to the effect that the University was specifically conducting test on her students towards finding out who and who is affected by the epidemic on the campus of the nation’s most sought-after University.
Dr. Durotoye, who was on the programme in company of the institution’s Director of Medical Service, Dr.AbdulRasheed Adekanye Odunola, said that the disease had not even been recorded anywhere across the length and breadth of Kwara State not to talk of the University which is a small fraction of the population of the state.
