Former chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and Chief Executive Officer of Bioresources Institute of Nigeria, Prof. Maurice Iwu, said a cure for the deadly coronavirus has been discovered by his team.

Iwu stated this on Monday at Abuja where he led his team of researchers to brief the Minister of Science and Technology, Mr Ogbonnaya Onu and the Minister of Health Dr. Osagie Ehanire.

He said that the institute had identified and patented the possible Coronavirus treatment in 2015 and now needs the Federal Government’s support to translate the compound into a drug for the treatment of the deadly virus. COVID-19 (coronavirus) first case in the country was reported in the early hours of Friday and so far no new case has been discovered while the number of persons that had contact with the patient in Lagos and Ogun states have been placed under supervised self-isolation.
