Via Vanguard: Ebola: FG turns back corpse flown in from Egypt. Excerpt:
Aviation Authorities, Wednesday night, turned back a corpse flown into the country from Egypt at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport.
Airport officials disallowed the family of the deceased from collecting the body flown in aboard Egypt Air at about 11.30 pm.
Airport sources confided in Vanguard that the stand by Nigerian officials was in compliance with the Federal Government directives that banned the transportation of corpses within and outside the country – a move to check the spread of Ebola Virus Disease.
The source explained that “though Egypt is not among the countries with the Ebola outbreak, it is better to take precautionary measures by not entertaining any exception in the movement of corpses in the country.”
