Niger State  has  launched  a manhunt for another COVID-19  case  who  allegedly absconded from Minna isolation centre.

It was learnt  the patient had started “manifesting symptoms of the disease” before he absconded.

Governor Abubakar Bello  said he had sent  a search party after the man  said to be from Kano and take  him  back to the isolation centre.

This makes  the second time a coronavirus  case will  escape from  an  isolation centre in the state, the first being a woman from Kano who disappeared from  the Suleja Isolation Centre.

Addressing  reporters  in Minna  on Tuesday,  the governor blamed  the police  for man’s escape.

Meanwhile, Bello  has announced the  extension of the lockdown on the state by another two weeks.

However, the state government  retained the windows for the people to buy  food  items  and observe  Friday and Sunday prayers.

The governor  banned  commercial motorcycle operations.
