In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mukhtar Gidado, Governor Mohammed announced that he met Atiku’s son on an Aero Contractors’ flight recently and that the two of them shook hands.
The statement reads, “This is to inform the general public that His Excellency, Bala Mohammed, has gone into self-isolation.
“This development is sequel to a report from the NCDC that the son of former VP of Nigeria was tested positive for Coronavirus upon his return from an international trip through Lagos.
“It would be recalled that Governor Bala Mohammed, who also recently returned from an official trip in Lagos, met with Mohammed Atiku Abubakar in the Aero Contractor aircraft where they shook hands and exchanged pleasantries.
“So far, the governor has not exhibited any symptom of the disease but based on the recommendation of the NCDC, he will remain indoors to avoid the risk of spreading the disease.
“Currently, the blood sample of the governor is being taken and is undergoing a clinical test.”
Nigeria recorded its first Coronavirus death on Monday while the authorities also announced that there were now 36 confirmed cases of the pandemic in the country.
