The governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed, has self isolated in a bid to curb the spread of the virus having been in contact with former Vice President Atiku’s son, Mohammed Atiku Abubakar .
The governor was said to have met Mohammed Atiku Abubakar who tested positive to the virus when he returned from an international trip through Lagos.
This was made known in a statement by Muktar Gidado, senior special assistant to the governor.
The state governor noted he is not showing any signs so far but is isolating as a precautionary measure given by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
The statement revealed the governor’s sample has been taken for testing and he and his entourage will remain in isolation till the results are out.
