Nollywood actor John Okafor aka Mr Ibu has said that coronavirus is a scam in Nigeria Speaking with The Nation, Mr Ibu said,
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 program. 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, 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.
On the rising numbers of cases of COVID-19 in Nigeria, Mr Ibu said,
You know anybody? Have you ever attended any burial and they say na this thing kill am? have you ever gone to the hospital them say this person na Covid dey hold am? Have you ever seen a family them say somebody na Covid na em kill am yesterday for family wey you know? You cannot, dem say dem say na em me and you dey hear. Even the sickness dey fear us.
Are they not human beings, let them bring a picture of at least one person killed by COVID-19 and we find the family of such a person. COVID whatever is not in Nigeria, we have hot weather here, the disease is scared of us just as we are scared of it so it can’t come here has affected so many industries in the country, it has driven us away from work because of the lies and gossip.
Na small thing e remain hunger for don kill me since if no be say better people dey wey dey give us money.
