The Nation reports that Ikpeazu is set to resume work on Wednesday, July 22, after his recovery.
The newspaper stated that sources whose names were not mentioned said Ikpeazu, his wife, Deaconess Nkechi and few aides attended an evening church service at the Seventh Day Adventist Church (SDA) Umuobikwa, Obingwa, the country home of the governor ahead of his planned resumption on Tuesday, July 21.
Ikpeazu tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday, June 8 and had been in isolation since then.
