The presidency in Nigeria was yet to issue a rebuttal on Tuesday following an unconfirmed report President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, had tested positive for coronavirus and exposed many other senior officials, including the President himself to the deadly virus.
The report was unconfirmed but the newspaper quoted inside sources and said the presidency was under lock and key.
It said many senior officials had gone into self isolation.
The Nigerian centers for disease control and prevention had not confirmed the report, nor the presidency in Abuja. Mr. Kyari himself was yet to comment on the development.
TODAY NEWS AFRICA will update this report.
