Kwara foils attempted escape from isolation centre

The Kwara State Government on Friday announced the uncovering of a plot by some COVID-19 patients who sneaked into the state to escape.

“This attempt was promptly foiled leading to arrest and return of the patients who had already scaled the fence,” said Rafiu Ajakaye, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor/Spokesman, Kwara State COVID-19 Committee.

“The government, he said, “is dismayed that these persons were among the imported cases who intentionally violated the interstate lockdown and came into the state.

“Security has been further beefed up at our isolation centre. The government restates that COVID-19 is not a death sentence and there is no reason why anyone would want to escape and put their own lives and the lives of other people at risk.”
