Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, on Thursday, declared Mr. Emmanuel Ononiwu wanted after he tested positive for the deadly Coronavirus but disappeared from a temporary holding facility.

According to the State Government, the COVID-19 index case despite testing positive for the coronavirus has refused to submit himself for appropriate medical management and isolation.

In a statement made available to 9News Nigeria on Thursday by Abia State Commissioner for Information, Chief John Okiyi, Ikpeazu said the Coronavirus patient escaped from a temporary holding facility in Aba prior to movement to an isolation center after being informed of his COVID-19 status.

The statement added that “all subsequent appeals made to him through his phone line, 08033484117, 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. His last tracked location was around 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 look out and take him in as soon as he is found.”

“All those who had contact with him in the past 14 days are strongly advised to call 0700 2242 362 and submit themselves for testing.”

“We strongly advise all citizens and residents to be vigilant and take necessary measures to protect themselves. Do not leave your house without wearing your face mask appropriately and ensure you maintain social distance at all times.”

“COVID-19 is real and if we take responsibility as individuals we can win the battle against the virus in our state and country.”
