The Chairman said that the high number of positive results recorded by international health authorities outside the country indicates that some Nigerians presented false COVID-19 test results before departure.

Professor Oyewale Tomori stated: “There are two ways to look at it; one, it is either they left the country with fake results or it is still possible that they could have been negative a day or two before leaving the country.

“with the consistently large number, my fear is that they are sending out a lot of people with forged results.
