Popular Nigerian Comic actor, John Okafor aka Mr Ibu, is of the opinion that the life-threatening pandemic ravaging the world, Coronavirus, is not in Nigeria.
In an interview with The Nation, the actor reportedly said he does not believe that COVID-19 exists in Nigeria nor does he care about its existence. According to him, he doesn’t know anyone who has been infected or has died from the novel viral disease.
Nigeria, we are not supposed to be involved in this COVID-19, I see no reason why we should be involved. Only Nigerians in the diaspora will have to partake in this devilish programme.
We at home are oblivious, we are not supposed to be involved in any ceremony in trying to pretend or in trying to avoid. My brother, COVID-19 or 20 is not here, I don’t care. Why would China give us sickness and America embellish the technicality and then sell it to the world and people now begin to die when they know it’s killing. Thank God we have hot weather, the thing sef dey fear us.
I no dey fear anything I dey wear cloth waka on my own. Nothing dey here, nobody don die for this whole area if you go another area nobody don die, go to stadium nobody don die. Let’s be sorry for ourselves.
I’m telling everybody not just the government this, say only what you know do not exaggerate it. Na we dey take our mouth call sickness by im own, sickness dey pass on its own but na we dey call am for Nigeria. You won’t see COVID-19 because it’s not here.
On the rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in Nigeria and activities of the NCDC, Mr Ibu said.
