Ondo State Government said it has admitted a policeman to begin treatment for COVID-19, The Nation reports.
It said the policeman got tested in Lagos and came to Ondo State while awaiting results.
The Ondo government said the policeman returned to Lagos after getting a positive result but had to rush back to Akure for treatment.
Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, who disclosed this in his twitter handle, described the action of the policeman as reckless.
Akeredolu, who expressed disappointment at the level of porosity of the entry points to the state, said he has directed the Commissioner of Police, Undie Adie, to double up on securing the entry points.
According to him: “The case of this individual who is a police officer is unique. He was tested in Lagos but came to Ondo state while awaiting his results . Upon receiving a positive result, he claimed to have returned back to Lagos.
“He waited a few days in Lagos to be picked up. When this failed, he panicked and rushed back to Akure for treatment. While we appreciate the confidence reposed in our facilities, We do find it most reckless on the part of the officer of the Law to risk the lives of others.
“I am most disappointed in the level of porosity of the entry points to the state. The police officer should know better. I have contacted the commissioner of police to double up on securing our entry points.”
