President Muhammadu Buhari and members of his delegation to London, UK, will go into isolation following a Covid-19 scare, according to the Guardian News.
This is as a result of the UK High Commissioner, Ambassador Sarafa Tunji Isola, who was sighted close to the President at the Airport in London and other members of the embassy staff, reportedly tested positive for coronavirus.
The Nigerian High Commission has since been locked down for 10 days in observation of UK COVID-19 regulations.
President Muhammadu Buhari was joined by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, Minister of State Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, National Security Adviser, Maj. Gen. Babagana Monguno (rtd) and Director General of National Intelligence Agency, Amb. Ahmed Rufai Abubakar, among others in the trip to London.
The Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, stated that his principal and those who travelled with him would have to go into isolation in line with the guideline for international travels.
“Mr President and all of those on his delegation will be isolated in line with NCDC guidelines for international travel.
“They all tested yesterday (Friday) and will follow up with another test in due course,” Shehu said on Saturday.
On Friday, President Buhari returned to Abuja from his two-week stay in the United Kingdom.
