U/W: Police chase Nigerian who run away after testing positive for COVID-19


Police in the Upper West Region are after a man who absconded after being informed that he has tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19) disease.

Regional Police Commander, DCOP Francis Aboagye Nyarko said the Police have began searching for Simon Okafor Chukudi, a Nigerian disappeared after being informed by the Regional Health Directorate that he has tested positive for the disease.

The region has so far recorded seven cases of the disease.

Upper West Regional Director of the Ghana Health Service, Dr Osei Kufuor Afreh told Joy FM that five of the seven cases are people who came into to the region from abroad.

“Five out of the new cases were people who came from abroad, including one Nigerian and one person from the Western region.

“But unfortunately for us, one of our confirmed cases cannot be traced. Having given him feedback on his test results, it has been very difficult to reach him,” Dr Afreh added.

He further disclosed that the Regional COVID-19 Response team is planning to transport Chukudi to the regional isolation if found.
