Ondo COVID- 19 cases rise to 16 as correctional Service rejects Olakunri’s murder suspects

The Nigeria Correctional Service in Ondo State has continued  refuse to admit three of the four suspected killers of Mrs Funke Olakunri, daughter of elder statesman Pa Reuben Fasoranti.

This is coming after one of them, Adamu Adamu, tested positive for COVID-19.

It was gathered that Adamu had last week attempted to escape from the Infectious Disease Hospital where he is being  treated
The other three suspects have tested negative to COVID- 19

 Governor Rotimi Akeredolu urged the authorities of the correctional centre to immediately receive the suspects into custody as directed by the law court.

The governor who  spoke at a weekly press briefing, said the state recorded three new cases last week.

He said the state now has 16 confirmed cases with six successfully treated and discharged while nine are receiving treatment.

He said the state was dealing more with imported cases of COVID-19 than with community transmission.

On the influx of young people from some northern states, the governor said, “They are mostly destitutes and are without doubt very vulnerable to the COVID-19 infection
