About 1332 Nigerian soldiers have been quarantined in Liberia over Ebola fears, Leadership Newspaper reports.

The officers, said to be peace keeping troops, reportedly came in contact with an infected Sudanese man who was in the soldiers’ camp to lead them in prayers during the Sallah celebration.
The development was disclosed by the Director of the Nigerian Army Medical Corps, Major-General Obashina Ogunbiyi in Abuja yesterday, October 9.
Ogunbiyi reportedly added that Nigeria is still at risk of the disease as any of the soldiers could choose to come back home at any time.
He also said that the quarantined soldiers are part of the reason “…why the military had to be totally involved in the fight against the Ebola virus.”
Nigeria has contained the Ebola outbreak and is set to be officially cleared by the World Health Organization on October 20.
