The Nigerian High Commission in the United Kingdom has temporarily shut down its office due to exposure to COVID-19.
In a statement entitled: ‘Closure of Nigerian High Commission, London’, the Commission announced that its office would be closed for 10 working days.
This shut down, it stated, is necessary as some officials tested positive to COVID-19.
The statement read in part: “The Head of Immigration Section and two other officials went for a meeting at the Home Office.
“At the entrance, Coronavirus test was administered on them and one of them tested positive to COVID-19. The affected officer immediately isolated while the other officials, who tested negative will also isolate for the next 10 days.”
The Commission also noted that other officials will be subjected to compulsory testing of the coronavirus.
“In line with COVID-19 regulation and the need to adhere to the rules and regulation of the host country, the Mission will close down for the next 10 days, in order to observe the mandatory isolation of those who were in contact with the affected officials.”
The High Commission however, pleaded with the general public for any inconveniences this temporary shut down might cause.
