The Lagos State Ministry of Health, LSMOH, has dismissed reports making the rounds on the social media that the state health commissioner, Prof. Akin Abayomi has tested positive to COVID-19.

In a press statement signed by the Ministry’s Director of Public Affairs, Mr. Tunbosun Ogunbanwo, the state government described the reports as fake news while urging the public to disregard the report.

“We hereby urge the public to disregard this absolute falsehood and fabricated report in its entirety. This is the handwork of mischief makers who are out to create unnecessary panic and fear amongst the populace.
