The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, on Wednesday confirmed Osun State’s first index case of coronavirus.

This was announced via their official Twitter page on Wednesday morning.

The Tweet read; “Two new cases of #COVID19 have been confirmed in Nigeria: 1 in Lagos and 1 in Osun.

“Both cases are returning travellers to Nigeria in the last 7 days.

“As at 07:00 am 25th March, there are 46 confirmed cases of #COVID19 in Nigeria. 2 have been discharged with 1 death.

“Currently; Lagos- 30 FCT- 8 Ogun- 3 Ekiti- 1 Oyo- 1 Edo- 1 Bauchi-1 Osun-1.
Total: 46 confirmed cases.”

Senator Ajibola Kabiru, a lawmaker representing Osun Central District in the Senate, on Tuesday, revealed that he is in self-isolation after his trip to the United Kingdom.

Basiru made this known while reacting to a letter by the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, alleging that lawmakers who embarked on a trip to the UK disregarded coronavirus precautionary steps.

He tweeted, “Contrary to the reports that all the Senators that travelled to the United Kingdom for the Petroleum Oil and Gas seminar have not complied with the protocol on precautionary steps on COVID-19, I have been in self-isolation since I returned from the UK.
