JUST IN: NCDC Shuts Emir Of Daura’s Palace Over New Case OF COVID-19

The Emir of Daura Palace, Umar Farouk, Katsina State has been sealed off following the confirmation of a case of COVID-19 in the palace.

According to Mustapha Inuwa, secretary to the state government, the closure was a normal routine put in place once a positive case has been recorded.

He said samples had been taken from the palace which has been placed under lock.

Gambo, a police spokesperson in the state, also said: “Daura is under lockdown and so it shall be in every nook and cranny in the town without exception to anybody’s house, the police are just ensuring the lockdown order of the state government.”

The Katsina state governor, Bello Masari, had in April ordered a lockdown in Daura local government area of the state, after three fresh cases of COVID-19 were recorded

His directive had followed the death of Aliyu Yakubu, a medical doctor based in Katsina state, who died from the complications of COVID-19.

Following the outbreak of the virus in the place, the emir had also suspended the wedding of his daughter.
