Mr Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, wife of Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has also tested positive for Coronavirus, barely two days after her husband contracted the disease.
A source in the government confirmed the news journalist on Thursday, SaharaReporters reports.
The source also revealed that some security aides to Mrs Akeredolu also tested positive for the virus.
“Unfortunately, her (Mrs Akeredolu) result came back positive with some of her aides today.
“Health officials have advised them to quickly go on isolation and I am sure they have taken the advice.
“So, for now, we don’t expect the governor and his wife to be seen in public places because we are in danger with the rising cases in the state.”
Commissioner for Health in the state, Wahab Adegbenro, died of the virus on Thursday.
