Ondo police command to investigate how three policemen tested positive for COVID-19

The Ondo state commissioner of Police, Undie Adie says the command will investigate the news making the rounds that three policemen in Yaba police division, Ondo have contacted coronavirus.

Adie who spoke with journalists at the government house, Alagbaka, Akure on Monday said the matter will be thoroughly investigated.

His words, ‘The matter will be thoroughly investigated. I am not aware that three policemen have contacted the disease.

“I will do everything to get to the root of the matter”.

Three policemen attached to Yaba Police Division, Ondo town, Ondo State, have tested positive for COVID-19.

They were said to have contracted the disease from a female senior colleague who refused to go for testing despite showing symptoms.

The policemen have been admitted at the state Infectious Disease Hospital, Akure, the state capital.

Sources said the female senior police officer resorted to take herbs for treatment rather than go for a test to know her COVID 19 status.

She was exposed by a relative who posted on a WhatsApp platform that her sister has been taking herbs at home to treat herself rather than go to the hospital.

The relative said she cried out so that innocent people around her would not be infected in case she tested positive.
