Promise Gogorobari, the owner of Prodest Hotel which was demolished weeks ago by Governor Nyesom Wike, has countered the Rivers state government's claim of his manager testing positive for Coronavirus.
Gogorobari insisted that the manager of his hotel, Dr. Bariledum Azoroh is hale and hearty and is currently being detained illegally.
The demolished hotel owner who wondered why his manager's name was the only one mentioned among the 27 new cases in the state, alleged that the Rivers state Government hired unorthodox medical officers to write a report that his manager tested positive for to COVID-19.
“I have it on good authority based on intelligent report reaching me that the manager of Prodest Hotel in Eleme, Dr. Bariledum Job Azoroh, who is now a prisoner of the Rivers State Government has been framed up by an unorthodox hired medical officers recruited by the government with a report that he has tested positive to COVID-19 whilst in detention with the Rivers State Government.
"My manager is being kept in this gangster stadium facility and surreptitiously tried and convicted with a fine of N50,000 and to be isolated for 14 days.
“This is the worst abuse to citizens human rights under the Quarantine Act.
“The Rivers State Government and Governor of Rivers State must be held liable for infecting my manager who is in their custody for over 15 days with COVID-19.
“He was a very healthy person before his arrest. It is therefore medically impossible that the infection occurred before his detention.
“It is a known fact that I and the Rivers State Government are at daggers drawn over demolition of my hotel.
“It is a beastial act for the same government to convict my manager and now infect him with the novel Coronavirus. It is also known that the object of the government is to kill my manager and his lawyer by conducting some unorthodox medical tracing to the lawyer.
“The manager is currently under pressure to take some unorthodox drugs that are non-compliant to the NCDC prescription and treatment procedures.
“Furthermore, the drugs have been prepared locally and it is a poison such that if used will kill the manager of Prodest hotel within 24 hours.
“The whole world should be aware that Governor Wike wants kill the manager to convince the public that infected persons were in the hotel all in attempt to justify his illegal demolition of the hotel on the 10th of May 2020. The society should therefore be concerned just as I am worried.
“The President of Nigeria should step in now to stop the murderous rage of the Governor of Rivers State. He should submit Dr. Bariledum Job Azoroh to NCDC in Abuja and stop all further acts in this matter”.
