He told Tribune Online that immediately, he was brought to Katsina, the doctors took him to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) because of his poor health status.

Earlier, the palace of the first class traditional ruler was sealed on Monday by the police on the orders of the state governor, Aminu Masari.

The state government had directed that all those living at the palace must be quarantined because the first case of coronavirus was traced to Daura.

It was learnt that the late doctor who tested positive and later died was said to have made contact with people at the palace including the embattled monarch.

As at the time of filing this report,  the ancient city of Daura is still under lockdown as people who have made contact with the late doctor are still being treated.
