A separate report by Tribune showed the six escapees belong to a cluster of COVID-19 cases who returned to their hometown, Ejigbo, from Ivory Coast last week and were quarantined by the state government.

The Nation further reported that when the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Ismail Omipidan was contacted on phone, his line was not reachable.

The development came only hours after a 55-year-old man, who was admitted to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Idi-Araba, Lagos, died of complications from COVID-19.

The deceased who reportedly had underlying health issues including hypertension and diabetis concealed his travel history including his return from Holland few weeks ago and died “a few hours” after he was admitted.

The hospital was said to have discovered that the patient had COVID-19 when a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test was conducted on his blood posthumously.

“Fingerprint antibody test was done on him, confirming his COVID-19 infection,” a source quoted by The Punch said, adding “The man did not give his travel history or the fact that he had contact with someone who had travelled overseas.

“He told the doctors that he had no history of coughs, sore throat, joint pains or diarrhea. After the Senior Registrar reviewed his case and confronted him with their findings, the man revealed the true story about his travels and his fear that he might have contracted COVID-19 and died shortly afterward.

As of Saturday morning, Nigeria had 210 cases of coronavirus and four deaths of which  Lagos has 104. The state has, however, discharged 23 patients who have recovered from the disease.
