Simon Okafor Chukudi escaped from self-isolation at his residence in Wapaani despite testing positive for coronavirus.
The Upper West Regional Police Command, consequently, mounted a search for him.
He was arrested on Friday around the Wa Polytechnic.
He has been handed over the Covid-19 task force and sent to the new regional hospital under heavy security.
