The confirmation was the final report from the analysis of the samples which were taken to the World Health Organisation laboratory in Dakar, Senegal.

Professor Adewole also confirmed on Monday in Abuja that four results from the 43 suspected cases reported from other states including Lagos, Akwa Ibom, and Ekiti states were negative.
