Suleman Kazeem Adeniji, an environmental health officer working at the Ota COVID-19 Testing Centre.

''You know, our people here are ignorant. They don't think COVID-19 is real until they see two or three people close to them get infected. I live with my children but I isolate myself from them every blessed day. I explain everything to them, I let them know the type of job I do and that they should stay away from me for a while. So anytime I finish working, I call my family on the way home so that they don't touch my things, they don't handle my phone. I just call them on the phone to open the other entrance for me to get in, just move straight to my apartment and take my bath before coming out. They bring my food to me, but they don't come close to me at all.''
