A pregnant woman was allegedly killed by a police officer who denied her access to a hospital because of the coronavirus lockdown in Ogun Waterside.

 

The incident happened in Ibiade area, and she was said to be in labour and in need of medical care before she gave up the ghost.

 

The death of the pregnant woman triggered youths to move to the police station to express their displeasure with a protest.

 

In reaction to the situation, a top police official in Abuja, ACP Markus Ishaku Basiran who heads the Compliant Response Unit of the Nigeria Police Force said that the Commissioner for Police in Ogun State, Kenneth Ebrimson has been informed for further investigation.

 

 

Late on Wednesday, the Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu clarified that essential service providers including medical personnel and citizens in need of essential services are permitted to move during the coronavirus lockdown.

 

Ogun State has been on lockdown since April 3 and Governor Dapo Abiodun extended the restriction of movement by another week last Friday.
