Suger Eagles striker Ahmed Musa has stated that neither he nor any of his family members tested positive of Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
This is coming against the backdrop of social media reports claiming that he has been diagnosed with coronavirus.
The Al-Nassr striker recently returned to Nigeria from Saudi Arabia, where he currently playing professional football.
Upon arriving back in Nigeria, the 27-year-old confirmed his intention to self-isolate, with some media taking that as a sign he had tested positive for COVID-19.
Nigeria’s highest goal scorer in World Cup competition wrote on his Instagram “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.
“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.
“Please don’t fall for the malicious messages circulating about me or my family. Stay safe, maintain social distancing.”
