“Although we are both asymptomatic, we have gone into self-isolation for 14 days whilst our contacts are being observed closely to determine if they should also be tested,” he added.

Otegbayo first made his status known on his official Twitter account @UchCmd, explaining how he found out he had the virus.

“On Monday 23rd March, we commenced a 12-man quarterly board meeting which was meant to last 5 days in the hospital.

“We observed social distancing and other precautionary measures for COVID-19 as much as possible.

“However, on Wednesday morning, one of us presented with what appeared to be symptoms of COVID-19.

“His samples were immediately taken for test and the meeting called off.

“His results returned positive on Friday morning and every participant (including me) immediately went into self isolation while our samples were also taken for test.

“Unfortunately, my result returned positive on Saturday afternoon. I remain in isolation as I am not symptomatic.
