Six persons with confirmed infection of coronavirus have reportedly escaped from isolation center in Osun.

According to Tribune Online, the coronavirus patients escaped from the center at Ejigbo local government area of Osun

The six persons belong to a cluster of COVID-19 cases who returned to their hometown, Ejigbo, from Ivory Coast last week and were quarantined by the state government.

Osun State government was, however, reported by Tribune to have launched a manhunt for the six persons.

However, there is no official statement from the state government at the time of filing this report.

But a top medical official who spoke to PMNews via Osun Emergency Line said they are not aware of such development.

She said the only information on the desk was that the Ivory Coast returnees who tested negative had been discharged.

She added that the condition of the isolation center is conducive and isolated persons have no reason to abscond.

Another source told PM News that the six Ivory Coast returnees who tested positive with the help of those that tested negative escaped from the centre.

“I think the issue here is about lack of orientation, these people even tried to beat doctors, before they were tested, it was war and after the test, those that came out negative refuse to leave. They said they must leave with their colleagues,” the source said.

“I think some government officials including the deputy governor went there, but they did not listen, some of them complained about the condition of the isolation center not being conducive enough. Is it not for the main time? They chased deputy governor away, it was a matter of illiteracy… very sad.

I think the governor plans to go there today before this came up,” he added.

When the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Ismail Omipidan was contacted on phone, his line was not reachable at the time of filing this report.
