Ten staffers of the Lagos House Marina, the official residence of Governor Babajide Sanwo-olu have been diagnosed with coronavirus.
Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Professor Akin Abayomi, revealed this on his Twitter handle on Thursday.
The revelation is a big blow to the efforts to wrestle the virus to the ground in the state.
Abayomi however clarified that Sanwo-Olu and his wife have tested negative three times for the virus.
The Health Commissioner called on Lagosians to observe the precautionary measures such as physical distancing, hand washing and other personal hygiene.
“All directives on easing lockdown in Lagos State remain in force. It is our collective responsibility to do all we can to stop the spread of the pandemic”, he added.
