Also fumigated were the walkways, lecture theatres as well as the Central Mosque and the churches.

"Let it be on record that the University of Ilorin, despite being a federal institution, is the first university to be fumigated by the governor, Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq," Mr Adaramaja said.

He affirmed that infected persons could be cured as long as they report all signs and symptoms noticeable in their communities to the helplines provided by the COVID-19 team.
