The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the 160 new cases marked the lowest figure in the country since the last three months.
On Aug. 4, Nigeria reported 288 COVID-19 cases and 290 new cases just one week later.
The NCDC further reported 252 cases on Aug. 25 and 221 on Aug. 26.
It said that a multi-sectoral national Emergency Operations Centre activated at Level 3 had continued to coordinate the national response activities across the country.
The NCDC also stated that 291 persons recovered from isolation centres across the country in the last 24 hours with no fatality.
The public health agency noted that the new figure brought the total number of confirmed cases to 53,477 in the country.
It stated that the 160 new cases were from 15 states.
Meanwhile, the agency said that the reopening of places of worship did not mean that the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak had subsided.
“If you must gather to worship in the mosque today, take preventive measures to protect yourself and loved ones.
“Wear a face mask and don’t share personal items,” it said.
