Efforts to disinfect the State House, including the office of President Muhammadu Buhari, are underway as fumigators moved in to Aso Rock Villa, Thursday morning.
The exercise started about 9:30am and would be extended to all the offices within the State House quarters.
The fumigators, who were reportedly dressed in white overalls, masked and kitted heavily, were moved in from a place outside Abuja.
It was reported that at about 11:30am, the fumigation process had reached the main building, where the office of the President is located.
“These people are not from the Villa. They came from outside from the town (Abuja city). They are dressed in complete white overalls, masked and wear other protective gears,” a national daily quoted a source.
He noted “the dressing is similar to how the National Centre for Disease Control people wear their protective gears.”
Recall that on Monday, the Chief of staff to the President, Abba Kyari tested positive for Coronavirus and had since been quarantined and already receiving medical attention.
