The Director of Public Health in Health and Human Services Secretariat, FCT, Dr Humphrey Okoroukwu, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the other victim has been treated and discharged from the hospital.

Okoroukwu said, though, before the laboratory confirmation, they were placed on treatment but one of the victims could not make it.
