The commissioner told journalists in a chat the suspect is an aide of Bauchi State Governor,  Bala Mohammed, who had tested positive for the disease.

He said the state team comprising the World Health Organisation (WHO) officials and security agencies had gone to the suspected COVID-19 patient’s home to take his sample for tests in Abuja.

He said: “One of the aides of the governor of Bauchi is on self-isolation. Our team went to his house twice to ensure he embarks on self-isolation.

“The test result is supposed to take 48 hours. We implore Plateau residents to comply with the preventive measures of personal and respiratory hygiene.” (NAN)
