Justice John Tsoho, the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court of Nigeria, and members of his family have tested negative to COVID-19, two weeks after they went into self-isolation.
Catherine Nwandu, Acting Information Officer of the FHC, made this known on Tuesday in a statement made available to journalists in Abuja.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Tsoho and members of his family had on July 17 gone on self-isolation following a confirmed case of COVID-19 among his aides.
Nwandu, on Tuesday, hinted that the first test was done at the beginning of the 14-day self isolation, while the confirmatory test came thereafter, both by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.
She said: “Both tests were conducted by the NCDC.
“These measures were preventive rather than curative.
“Earlier, a close aide to His Lordship tested positive to COVID- 19, hence the precautionary measures that followed.
“The said aide has since been discharged from an NCDC Isolation Centre and is now doing well.
“The Hon. Chief Judge expresses deep appreciation to colleagues, court staff, friends and extended family members, who kept faith with him for their prayers.
“He prays for showers of blessing upon all people of goodwill.”
