He took an Aero 5:20pm Flight from Lagos to Abuja and traveled by Emirates Airline wearing face mask as a precautionary measures since he arrived Nigeria. The Case did not also attend the Friday Jumu'a or any social gathering. The media aide further urged the general public to disregard misleading information the the case accessed public places.
