They were releases to their families after testing negative twice to confirm that they have been cured of the virus.
This brings the number of discharged cases in Oyo State to five, leaving six as active cases.
Governor Seyi Makinde, who doubles as the Chairman, Oyo State Covid-19 Task Force, made the disclosures while giving an update on the fight against the virus in the state.
