Ever since the World Health Organization (WHO) declared Nigeria ebola-free, the government has been doing everything within its power to ensure that status is maintained.

As a result, pre-cautionary measures are being taken as 850 Nigerian soldiers who were on a peace-keeping mission in Liberia, where the Ebola epidemic is rampant, return to Nigeria in March 2015.

Arrangements are already being made to quarantine the soldiers in Gwagwalada, Abuja for 28 days before they rejoin their respective platoons, The Stream reports.

“I think the authorities are just being careful; there is no intent to demoralise anybody because we all know the dangers of this Ebola Virus Disease,” said an army source.
