Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has gone into isolation.
The governor, who stated this on Saturday Morning via a twitter broadcast, said the measure was necessary as family members and senior government officials around him tested positive for COVID-19.
El-Rufai said he is in self-isolation as a precaution pending a COVID-19 test to be conducted on Sunday.
The governor had earlier tested positive for the virus in March but recovered after some weeks.
In a related development, Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has also gone into isolation following reported cases of positive COVID-19 cases recorded by persons close to him.
