One of the suspects who allegedly killed Olufunke Olakunri, daughter of Afenifere leader, Reuben Fasoranti on Tuesday attempted to escape from the Ondo state Infectious Disease Hospital.
The suspect, Adamu Adamu who is standing trial with three others for the gruesome murder of Mrs. Olakunri tested positive for COVID- 19 a day after appearing in court.
Thenewstrack gathered that the suspect almost escaped at the IDH before the nurses and doctors raised alarm.
It was learnt that the suspect had escaped from where he was isolated before he was arrested.
He was said to have been spending longer time in the toilet which arose the suspicion of the health workers.
The incident has forced police authorities in the state to beef up security at the isolation centre.
At least no fewer than six policemen have been drafted to the centre.
Unlike before, the suspect is now chained to his bed.
This is to prevent him from escaping from the IDH
