Prof. Osinbajo made the observation today when he received a delegation of the Nigeria-Russia Chamber of Commerce and Industry led by its President, Chief Obiora Okonkwo, at the Presidential Villa. The delegation also included representation from the Russian government, including a special envoy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Oleg Ozerov, and the country’s Ambassador to Nigeria,  Alexey Shebarshim.  

And later he was flown to Berlin and the German experts and authorities have since confirmed, after detoxicological test, that he was poisoned with a chemical nerve agent of the Novichok group, a military-grade neurotoxin – the same biological weapon that was used in the poisoning of a Russian ex-spy and his daughter in the UK about two and a half years ago. This is not the first time Mr Navalny would be poisoned.
