One Vincent Prosper has been declared wanted by the Abia State Ministry of Health in partnership with the State Inter-Ministerial Committee on Coronavirus. The Abia State Commissioner for Information, John Okiyi Kalu, disclosed this in a statement on Friday.

According to the statement, Prosper sneaked into the state from a neighbouring state.

The state’s health agency also said that those who had contact with him should call 0700 2242 362 immediately.

However, Abia State Government has announced two days intra-state free movement for Easter celebration as part of the slight change in the recently announced 7-day lockdown in the state.

In a statement on Thursday by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Barr. Chris Ezem, the two- day relaxation of the lockdown on Good Friday and Easter Sunday was to enable residents shop and perform other religious activities in commemoration to the Easter celebration.

The SSG, who also doubles as the chairman of the Coronavirus Committee in the state, said that parishioners of various denominations, including their Muslim counterparts were free to attend Friday and Sunday services in their various denominations.

But he urged them to wear their face masks and also maintain 1.5m government-approved social distance mark.
