Sept 3rd, 2014 – “Don’t Buy Fake Ebola Virus Test Kit” – Fashola Warns Lagosians Against Rapid Response Canada

Some fraudsters have started profiting from the Ebola Virus Disease outbreak in Nigeria.

As we speak, fake Ebola Cassette Test kits are now on sale in Lagos.

In view of this, the Lagos State Government on Tuesday alerted members of the public to the sale of the fake kits, warning them not to patronise the dubious marketers.

According to a statement signed by the Special Adviser on Media to the Governor, Mr Hakeem Bello, “the Ebola test kit, which is branded as ‘Rapid Response Canada with test results purportedly available in 10 minutes’ is a hoax.”

Bello warned that there are no Ebola test kits manufactured anywhere in the world, as the technique for its manufacture does not exist yet.
