1 Mins read

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC has asked Nigerians to disregard any messages from some personality claiming they are beneficiaries of COVID-19 funds.

This week, several people shared screenshots of messages they received, asking them to claim up to N50,000 as palliatives from the federal government.

However, the NCDC in an SMS on Sunday, warned that it was a scam.

It read: “BEWARE OF SCAM: Disregard any message that you are a beneficiary of COVID-19 funds or your account has been credited by NCDC.

“Delete immediately and do not share.”

On Saturday night, the agency announced 601 new coronavirus cases. It brings the current tally in the country to 51,905.
