The late General Irefin was said to have visited some of his colleagues at home before he attended the conference, heightening tension among those yet to show signs of the virus.

Thereafter, all the officers who attended the conference, their wives, and other members of their families who live with them, have been directed to isolate themselves for a week by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

Meanwhile, families of late Irefin who hailed from Kogi State reportedly expressed anger that the General might have been killed rather than the COVID-19 the Army authority claimed was the cause of his death.
