An Idegene of Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area of Rivers State was sent out of the flood camp by the Deputy Governor of Rivers State, Tele Ikuru because she was tested positive to HIV.
All the people in the camp went through an HIV test to ascertain the nature of their health while living in the camp but amongst them all, only this woman was tested positive to HIV and was sent out.
After been sent out of the camp, the woman and her three kids started living in an uncompleted building where she died. Social Action in Rivers State are accusing the Deputy Gov of killing the woman and thereby Sanctioning him for discriminating against people living with HIV/AIDS.
The Rivers State Government ended with the saying from now on, they will protect anybody living under the governance of Rivers State.
