Abia State Govt declares COVID-19 patient wanted

The Government of Abia State has declared a man wanted when he disappeared after testing positive for COVID-19.

The government stated that the man referred to as Emmanuel Ononiwu, had refused to make himself available for medical management and isolation.

This was made known by the state Commissioner for Information, John Okiyi-Kalu, on Thursday in a statement.

He explained that he escaped from a temporary holding facility in Aba prior to his movement to an isolation centre.

“All subsequent appeals made to him through his phone line fell on deaf ears as he insisted that he will not turn himself in and has gone ahead to switch off his line along with that of his spouse who is also required to come in immediately for testing,” the commissioner said.

Mr Okiyi-Kalu stated that the last location that the patient was tracked was Asa Triangle in Aba South LGA.

“If seen anywhere, please report to the nearest security agency or call 0700 2242 362, but do not approach him without full protection to avoid infection.

“Enforcement teams all over the state are also advised to be on the lookout and take him in as soon as he is found.

Mr Kalu further appealed to all those who had contact with the patient in the past 14 days “to call our numbers and bring themselves forward for immediate testing.
