The Presidency has began an “intensive fumigation” of the State House following recent reports of Coronavirus cases in and around the state House.
According to reports by the Punch newspaper, fumigation experts arrived at the Villa about 9.30 am to commence the exercise, which a source said would cover all the offices at the Presidential Villa.
Findings indicated that as of 11.15 am, the experts were already in the main building housing the office of the President, Muhammadu Buhari, the floors, corridors, and major pathways.
“These people are not from Villa. They came from outside of the town (Abuja city). They are dressed in complete white overalls, masked and wear protective gears.
“The dressing is similar to how the National Centre for Disease Control officials wear their protective gears”, an official said.
There were initial reports that the President had been infected with the virus but the Presidency dismissed such reports although the Chief of Staff to the president, Abba Kyari, has tested positive to Covid-19
