He confirmed the development in a statement on Sunday. 

Otegbayo said, "On Monday March 23, we commenced a 12-man quarterly board meeting which was meant to last five days in the hospital, we observed social distancing and other precautionary measures for Covid-19 as much as possible. 

"However, on Wednesday morning, one of us presented with what appeared to be symptoms of Covid-19, his samples were immediately taken for test and the meeting called off. 

"His result returned positive on Friday morning and every participant (including me) immediately went into self-isolation while our samples were also taken for test. 

"Unfortunately, my result returned positive on Saturday afternoon and I remain in isolation as I am not symptomatic. 

"All staff who have been in contact with me and other participants during this period have been advised to immediately proceed on self-isolation pending the time they get tested."
