Popular Nollywood actress,  Iyabo Ojo took to Instagram to accuse officials working in one of the Nigerian airports of extorting N51, 950 from her for a COVID-19 test which they never did.

The mum of two returned to the country from Turkey on Monday morning, September 28. She said before embarking on her flight to Nigeria, she underwent a COVID-19 test which came out negative. She flew into Nigeria barely 24 hours later and presented the result to airport officials in Nigeria who  allegedly refused to accept it, insisting she must carry out another one here in Nigeria.

Iyabo Ojo said she was made to pay N51,950 and still no test was carried out on her.

She wrote;

“Hello Nigeria ??

I was really very upset @ the Nigerian airport this morning, i did a covid-19 test yesterday morning @ the Turkish Istanbul airport before i was allowed to fly, i had to even change my ticket bcos I needed to wait to collect my result, ok cool!!! So now I don do test, I’m covid-19 free, free to fly abi?

i flew in this morning less than 24hrs with my negative text result of covid-19, they didn’t even check it @ the Lagos airport with all the stress I had to allowed to fly, i had to even change my ticket bcos I needed to wait to collect my result, ok cool!!! So now I don do test, I’m covid-19 free, free to fly abi?
