Adamu Adamu, one of the suspects that killed Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Afenifere leader Pa Reuben Fasoranti, has recovered from coronavirus.

He was arrested in Edo State and tested positive for COVID-19 after he and three others were arraigned in Akure.

He was kept at Ondo State Infectious Disease Hospital where he was treated even though he made several attempts to escape from the facility.

However, Governor Akeredolu described the escape attempts of the suspect as worrisome.

He told journalists on Monday that the trial of the suspects would continue unhindered.

Akeredolu noted that he has made necessary contacts with the Interior Minister, Rauf Aregbesola, to hasten the return of the defendant to the Correctional Centre.

He said: “It is no longer expedient to keep the suspect outside an approved Correctional Centre. Where he is not the proper place.

“We are already discussing with the Minister of Interior on the need to move the suspect, we call them defendants anyway, to the Correctional Centre. That is where he rightly belongs.

“We believe strongly that the minister will in no distance time, direct appropriate quarters within his jurisdiction to effect the transfer of the man to the appropriate place.”
