According to a statement by the Air Force Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, the medical materials, which consist of 107 boxes of medical supplies and equipment, comprising surgical masks, medical disposable protective clothing, face shields and detection kits, were airlifted in a single mission using the C-130 Hercules aircraft and handed over to a delegation from the Federal Ministry of Health led by the Permanent Secretary, Alhaji Abdulazeez Mashi Abdullahi, on Wednesday in Abuja.

In light of the development, some Nigerians have asked why the medical materials are being transferred to Abuja when the majority of the coronavirus cases recorded in Nigeria are in Lagos state.
