Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi has said that the government will clamp down on fraudsters issuing fake coronavirus test results to international travelers.
Abayomi stated this at a press briefing on Monday, adding that the state has seen an increase in positive cases from inbound travellers.
“Positivity for inbound travellers is on the rise as Nigerians in the Diaspora return to spend Christmas in Lagos. It has come to our attention that a number of people are patronising individuals that sell fake COVID-19 results.
“We are currently putting in processes to identify both buyers and sellers and we will not hesitate to prosecute them,” he said.
Lagos State Government has re-introduced some measures earlier set up to curb the deadly COVID-19 following a rise in positive cases.
