Dr Filani noted that the result would determine the next phase of their treatment.

The Commissioner was joined on the visit by Prof Kayode Olabanji, the Chief Medical Director of the hospital and other top officials of the Hospital.

“We will certainly discharge them at the appropriate time. They underwent clinical psychotherapy yesterday, but we have to wait for the result to determine the next phase. But, we expect that they will be discharged sometimes this week,” he asserted.
