Fasoranti’s daughter: Quarantined suspect discharged, heads for prison

The Ondo State Governor, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu, has disclosed that arrangement was ongoing to move to the prison, Adamu Adamu, a suspect in the murder of Mrs Funke Olakunrin, the daughter of the Afenifere leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti.

He noted that the murder suspect, who had earlier tested positive for COVID-19, had been certified negative after two successive tests in line with treatment and testing protocols.

The governor made this disclosure on Monday at the weekly COVID-19 press briefing held at the Government House, Akure, the state capital.

Akeredolu said, “It is no longer expedient to keep the suspect outside an approved Correctional Centre. We are already discussing with the Minister of Interior on the need to move the defendants 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,” the governor assured.

The governor said the trial of the defendant would continue unhindered after returning to the prison.
