Covid-19: Immigration boss, UCH Chief Medical Director test positive (Read Details)


Comptroller-General of Nigeria Immigration Service,  Muhammad Babandede, has contracted Coronavirus.

Babandede, who returned from the United Kingdom to Nigeria on March 22, made the confirmation on Sunday.

Also, the Chief Medical Director of University College Hospital, Ibadan, Oyo State, Prof Jesse A. Otegbayo, has tested positive for Coronavirus.  He confirmed the development in a statement on Sunday.

However, Otegbayo disclosed that on Monday March 23, we commenced a 12-man quarterly board meeting which was meant to last five days in the hospital, we observed social distancing and other precautionary measures for Covid-19 as much as possible but on Wednesday morning, one of us presented with what appeared to be symptoms of Covid-19, his samples were immediately taken for test and the meeting called off.

Moreover, when his result returned positive on Friday morning and every participant including me immediately vacate the premises and all went into self-isolation while our samples were also taken for test but unfortunately, my result returned positive to the deadly covid-19 disease on Saturday afternoon and I remain in isolation as I am not symptomatic.

I urge all staff who have been in contact with me and other participants during this period that they should immediately proceed on self-isolation pending the time they get tested.
