He had tweeted: “Did my fourth COVID-19 test yesterday at the first sign of a throat irritation and unfortunately this time it came back positive. That is life! Win some lose some – heading for isolation in a health facility and praying for the best.”

The minister announced the latest COVID-19 result yesterday in his verified Twitter handle.

Onyeama tweeted: “By the very special grace of God my latest #COVID19 test result came back negative after three weeks isolation.
