Daily Trust reported on July 1st that the governor and his wife tested positive a week after his daughter tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
Recall that the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Mr Chiedu Ebie, and the state’s Commissioner for Information, Mr Charles Aniagwu, tested positive for the virus weeks ago.
Both officials were reported to have shown mild symptoms of the virus and consequently subjected themselves to the test.
They were moved to an isolation centre where they were reported to be stable and responding to treatment.
