The family of the late Provost of College of Health Sciences, Nnamdi Azikiwe University , Nnewi, Anambra State , Prof . Onochie Udemezue has alleged foul play over his death.

They frowned at the delay by the institution in releasing the COVID - 19 status of the late professor .

Udemezue reportedly died on Thursday of diabetes and COVID -19 -related complications.

But the family in a briefing on Sunday said it might demand an independent test on the late professor ’ s sample .

The family spokesman , Orji Udemezue , said , “We are saddened by the rumour making the rounds that our brother and father died of COVID - 19 .

“The family is well aware of COVID - 19 issues and we know that millions of people have been infected and thousands died all over the world , we are aware that COVID -19 is not a taboo or death sentence .

“It is a shock to us that three days after the death of Prof . Udemezue , the result of COVID status has not been made available to the family. This is something that should not take more than 15 minutes to get done under normal circumstances .

“It may interest the members of the public to note that Prof . Udemezue , before his death , demanded his COVID - 19 status , which was not made available to him. We are beginning to suspect foul play in the whole episode and we demand clarification from NAUTH .”

Reacting on the telephone , the Chief Medical Director of NAUTH , Prof Anthony Igwegbe, said the result was not officially out from the relevant authorities , adding that nothing was conflicting about it.
