The 15-man medical team from China who arrived Nigeria on April 9 to support Nigerian medical doctors with their experiences in containing the Coronavirus pandemic have been secretly flown out of the country.

The secret departure was disclosed by Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, whose husband, Matthew Ekeinde is a pilot.

According to a report from an online medium, State Press “She took to her Instagram page to announce that her husband was embarking on his first flight in two months due to the shut down of the nation’s airspace.


“Sharing a picture of her husband and his co-pilot fulled kitted in a face shield and a mask, she wondered if it was the new normal.

“The Nollywood diva eventually added that he was flying the Chinese doctors who arrived Nigeria in April back to their base.

She wrote, “Is this the new normal? #TheCaptain went on his first flight today in two months! Those are the Chinese pple that flew in some time ago! Not sure how to feel”.

Recall that Nigerians opposed their coming to the country, while the Federal Government assured that they will be quarantined for 14 days on arrived.

The Nigeria Medical Association also kicked against the decision of the FG to invite the Chinese doctors to help the country curtail and contain the spread of the deadly virus.

But the Federal Government last two weeks denied knowing the whereabouts of the team, claiming that they were guests of the Chinese Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC).
