Sequel to the information being spread across various social media pages that six (6) out of the coronavirus confirmed cases in Osun state has run away, the state commissioner of Information has made an official press statement today to clarify the rumor being spread around.

In her statement, the commissioner noted that the state carried out a headcount at the isolation centre today in Ejigbo and it is only one person that cannot be accounted for.

The statement reads:

Our attention has been drawn to a story purporting that six persons were missing from our Isolation centre in Ejigbo. 
One of the writers quoted a non-existent statement from the government to lend some measure of credibility to the story. 
Nothing can be further from the truth. As a government, we have not issued any statement to confirm or deny such story. Besides, a quick check showed that the name and number of the first person on the list of the purported missing patients, is indeed currently in our facility in Ejigbo. 
Recall that about a week ago, we received 127 returnees from Ivory Coast and we have kept them since then to avoid community transfer of the virus. 
This morning we embarked on a headcount and found out that only one person could not be accounted for by officials stationed at the Isolation centre out of the 127 persons.
The State Government is currently investigating the matter and will ensure that the missing person is brought back to the Isolation centre and we will also ensure we trace all his contacts.
We want to reiterate that any official(s) found culpable will also be dealt with accordingly.  
We implore members of the public to discountenance the alarm being raised. We will continue to do everything to protect the lives of our citizens in this fight against Coronavirus. 
Signed Mrs. Funke Egbemode 
Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation.
