Ahmed Musa, the Super Eagles captain, has denied claims that he has contracted coronavirus. In a post on his Instagram account, the former CSKA Moscow forward described the claim as “fake news.”

The Eagles skipper lamented that at a time people were battling a pandemic, some individuals are spreading falsehood.

He posted “It has come to my notice that certain individuals have decided to post false news about me testing positive to COVID-19, this is a pandemic taking peoples lives in thousands; so it is sad that some people want to use this to gain followers or views on their pages by spreading falsehood.”

He explained that he came back from Saudi Arabia with his family and they went on self-isolation in line with government’s directive.

“My family and I came in from Saudi Arabia and decided to follow the government’s rule of isolation for 14 days, not because any of us have the virus. We are perfectly okay and have not tested positive to the virus,” he added.

Musa further warned people not to fall for the malicious messages circulating about him and his family. “Stay safe, maintain social distancing,” he added.
