The error of judgement by the revered retired judge in organising this party at this time, has now put the lives of so many who attended at risk. As at press time no fewer than two persons who attended the party have died while a third is lying critically ill in intensive care unit, ICU because they were infected with the Coronavirus. The death of one of the two deceased, a Mr Rotimi Adigun has been confirmed by the wife. According to the deceased spouse, her late husband started complaining of itchy throat the moment he returned home from the party.
There has been outrage on the social media on why a respected personality like the retired judge should organise such party in a-storm-engulfed-world. The elite who attended from Nigeria have been randomly criticised for not self-isolating knowing that they have been to the United Kingdom where the virus has also spread in Europe. Some bloggers have threatened to publish the names of those elite Nigerians who attended the party if they don’t go on self-quarantine. Of the more than two dozens of prominent people who attended the party, it is only foremost industrialist Chief Razak Okoya and former Ogun State Governor, Chief Segun Osoba, that have been reported to have quarantined themselves.
