The source further revealed that Oluwatoyin Adegbenro, the wife of the state’s Health Commissioner, Wahab Adegbenro, who died of the virus on Thursday, had also tested positive for COVID-19.

It was also gathered that a number of aides to the governor may have also tested positive for the virus, but the development has not been made public.
