Multi - awards Winner and Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, has added yet another cap to her numerous caps of recognition for committment to the cause of humanity.

This time, the latest award comes from the World Humanity Council(WHC) for demonstrating committment to promote safety against COVID - 19 pandemic in Nigeria. WHC is an international organisation with its Headquarters in Bangladesh.

Tonto Dikeh through her NGO -Tonto Dikeh Foundation, has continued to show uncommon zeal in promoting safety measures against the pandemic in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and some northern States since the outbreak of the COVID - 19 in Nigeria last February 28.

She has equally been going about distributing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), cash, food items and other relief materials to the poor and vulnerable households to enhance their willingness to observe the prescribed safety measures against the pandemic, cooperate with the authorities on lockdown and cushion its effects on them.

Tonto Dikeh, her staff and volunteers were even recently attacked and they escaped death by the whisker from hungry mob who assaulted  them while distributing relief items to the poor and vulnerable people.

Meanwhile, 35  new cases of COVID19 have been reported as follows:

19 in Lagos
9 in FCT
5 in Kano
2 in Oyo

As at 10:20 pm 16th April there are 442 confirmed cases of COVID19 reported in Nigeria. 152 have been discharged with 13 deaths, according to Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
