The state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, who announced this through his twitter handle on Friday night, expressed optimism about the victim’s recovery.
Akeredolu noted that all necessary measures have been taken to locate everyone who has come in contact with the coronavirus patient.
He, however, called for calm and urged citizens to adhere to all preventive measures.
