A memo was sent to the Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano by an unidentified commissioner which contains the accusations of the Professor treating himself of COVID-19 at his own private clinic.

According to the memo that was sent, it was understood that Prof Onochie Udemezie suspected that he has contracted the novel virus, decided to go for secret treatment without making it official, at his clinic located at Nnewi.

The letter also went on to explain that self-treatment of COVID-19 is very bad and not good for people around the patient.
