The Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice John Tsoho, members of his immediate family, and his close aide, who went into self-isolation about two weeks ago, have tested negative for COVID-19 on two different occasions, the court’s management has said.
The court had announced in a statement by its Acting Information Officer, Catherine Nwandu, in Abuja on July 17, 2020, that they all went into two weeks self-isolation after one of Justice Tsoho’s close aides tested positive for the disease.
In another statement on Tuesday, Nwandu stated that two separate tests carried out on them by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, turned out negative.
The statement added that the aide, who tested positive, had recovered and discharged from the NCDC’s treatment centre.
The statement read, “The Federal High Court of Nigeria is pleased to announce that the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court of Nigeria, the Hon. Justice John T. Tsoho, with members of his immediate family have undergone two COVID-19 tests that have both turned out negative for all of them.
“The first test was done at the beginning of the 14-day self-isolation, while the confirmatory test came thereafter. Both tests were conducted by the NCDC.”
