A Nigerian man diagnosed with Coronavirus has reportedly run away from the hospital amid threats to spread the virus all over the country.
The man, identified as Adewale Isaac Olorogun, is said to be a taxi driver who drove an Italian to a company in Ogun State.
After much plea by the Ogun State government, Adewale finally went to the hospital and was tested positive for the virus.
He, however, disappeared within a twinkle of an eye after which he sent messages round asking for a 100 million naira compensation from the commissioner of health.
The news of his diagnosis has since spark mixed reactions on social media with some Nigerians tagging him as the most dangerous man in the country now.
