However, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s Special Adviser on Media, Salihu Yakasai, claimed that the five reported cases were part of yesterday’s cases that were omitted by the NCDC.

Writing on his Twitter handle, the governor’s media aide said: “Its worthy to mention that the 5 cases reported for Kano here are part of the 21 total confirmed cases as of yesterday.
