The Nigerian Army has cancelled the ongoing Chief of Army Staff’s Annual Conference 2020 taking place in Abuja.

The military formation announced this having realised that an officer who participated in the conference tested positive to COVID-19.

According to the Acting Director Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sagir Musa, all the participants of the conference, including himself have been mandated to immediately proceed on self isolation in line with the Federal Government’s protocol for COVID-19 and to prevent any further spread of the disease.

The statement reads; “The Nigerian Army wishes to inform members of the public that due to resurgence of COVID-19 Pandemic in the Federal Capital Territory Abuja in what appears to be a second wave of infection cycle and the unfortunate incident on Tuesday, December 8, where an officer participating in the ongoing Chief of Army Staff’s Annual Conference 2020 here in Abuja tested positive to COVID-19, the remaining activities of the conference have therefore been immediately cancelled.

“All the participants have been mandated to immediately proceed on self isolation in line with the Federal Government’s protocol for COVID-19 and to prevent any further spread of the disease.

“All inconveniences hereby regretted please. Thanks for your usual understanding and cooperation please.”
