One of Nollywood's most popular actresses, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, has contracted COVID-19.
The actress, who made this known on Saturday via her verified Instagram and Twitter accounts, said she has been in isolation and has been receiving treatment.
@Realomosexy wrote, “Hello all, I know you must have been wondering where I’ve been. Well, I contracted Covid. I have been ill, in isolation and now getting better. More details on this soon.”
Ekeinde also expressed concerns over the worrisome trend of containers crushing innocent lives to death in Lagos State and called on Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to address the situation.
“I have been reading the devastating news of how our youths are needlessly dying and getting crushed by trailers/containers! This is disheartening and has made my heart really troubled! This can happen to anyone and enforcements can’t be taken lightly on this. Gov @jidesanwoolu!!! Please, do something!” she added.
We had earlier reported that Chidinma Ajoku, 27, f, and her colleague, Chima Nnaekpe, 29, m, who both worked in the Commercial Department, Hajj & Cargo Terminal at the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria died on July 26, 2020, when a truck with number plate SGM 715 XA loaded with a 20ft container crushed the commercial bus they were on.
Ajoku’s mother, Chineze Ajoku, has since called on the state government to restrict the movement of container-laden trucks in Lagos to guarantee the safety of road users.
