According to him: “Muh’d was first stopped by Ugandan immigration officers on his way to Kenya to board Kenyan Airways to Nigeria.
“When he couldn’t meet the officers’ demand to pay 3m shillings (N300k) as bribe, they detained him. They then took him to a Covid-19 hospital where he tested negative.
“The hospital discharged him since 20/04/2020, but the immigration officers refused to collect him from the hospital and doctors won’t let him leave.
