Kwara foils attempted escape from isolation centre


Press Statement

Kwara State government said earlier on Friday May 15th, 2020, the government’s intelligence network uncovered 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.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor/Spokesman, Kwara State COVID-19 Committee said the government 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”, the statement concluded.
