The National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu alongside his personal aides have carried out tests for the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19).
Naija News reports that this was done as a precaution after the death of his Chief Security Officer (CSO), Lateef Raheem.
Before Tinubu’s CSO burial on Friday, samples were taken from his body for laboratory tests to determine if he was infected with COVID-19.
On Saturday, samples were also taken from the former Lagos State governor and his personal aides. Results are expected on Monday, sources told TheCable.
Reacting to the death of his aide, Tinubu said the late police officer had been with him before he became governor of Lagos state in 1999.
“Lateef reported for work on Monday. Feeling a bit under the weather, he went home to rest. We spoke on Wednesday by phone. He was in fine spirits and was looking forward to resuming work,” he wrote.
“I felt nothing but profound shock, and then the emptiness of deep loss when I was awakened early Friday that my most trusted security aide had died and that I would never see him again. I did not know the Wednesday conversation would be our last. The pain of his loss is acute.”
