Imo Businessman Dies In Abuja After Returning From S. Africa, State Govt Seals His Hotel, Quarantines Guests, Family Members
Residents of Imo State are presently gripped with fear over the mysterious death of the owner of Fancy Hotel, Umugwuma, Owerri, chief Christogonus Aguwa Osuagwu in Abuja on Monday March 30.
Osuagwu was said to have flown into the country from South Africa via Abuja. He reportedly left Abuja to his hotel in Owerri, and later visited his family at Ahiazu Mbaise LGA, before returning to Abuja where he was said to have died on Monday morning, prompting fears that he had died from coronavirus.
State chairman of the Hoteliers Association of Nigeria, Chima Chukwunyere, who confirmed the news to Daily Sun, said that the death of Osuagwu remains a mystery to the association as he pointed out that the deceased had been battling with kidney problem for some time.
“We cannot say for sure if he died of COVID -19 or not because he never subjected himself to test, but we know that he had been battling with a kidney problem for a very long time,” Chukwunyere explained.
Meanwhile, the hotel has been sealed and all those he came in contact with have been quarantined, Chukwunyere said.
COVID-19: Florida Pastor Arrested For Holding Fully-Packed Church Services Despite Stay-At-Home Order
A Florida Pastor, Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne has been arrested by the police for holding fully-packed church services despite a stay-at-home order in the state.
Prior to his arrest, the evangelical pastor had insisted that he wouldn’t close the doors of his Tampa Bay megachurch until the End Times begin. He also encouraged those in attendance at his River at Tampa Bay Church to shake hands, to show they were not afraid of contracting the coronavirus. A video from the church service on Sunday March 29, showed dozens of people packed inside the church and standing shoulder-to-shoulder.
Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne was arrested on Monday March 30 on misdemeanor charges of unlawful assembly and violation of public health rules after defying social distancing orders at The River at Tampa Bay church.
Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister said at a press conference;
“I made a decision to seek an arrest warrant for the pastor of a local church who intentionally and repeatedly chose to disregard the orders set in place by our president, the governor, the CDC and the Hillsborough County Emergency Policy Group. His reckless disregard for human life put hundreds of people in his congregation at risk and thousands of residents who may interact with them this week in danger.”
The church has claimed on its website that the restrictions are a violation of the First Amendment, and in a March 18 post on Facebook, the church said it was providing an “essential service” that made it exempt from the social distancing orders.
Authorities said the sheriff’s office spoke to attorneys for the church to explain they were in violation of government orders, and officers attempted to meet in person with the pastor but he refused.
Howard-Brown turned himself in to a neighboring sheriff’s office and was booked and released within 40 minutes.
Florida has more than 5,200 confirmed coronavirus cases and at least 63 deaths, according to the state’s health department.

”Let the Minister come and see what is happening. If I am telling lies, my name is Mr Olanutu.
What the hell are they doing here? She hasn’t seen a doctor since morning, she hasn’t seen a nurse, she hasn’t been fed and you are telling me that I should not take her out. Let her go and die in my house, simple. I don’t care anymore. For the fact that you have Coronavirus does not mean you should be left around” he said
