The coronavirus pandemic came and shook the world to its core in the early part of year 2020. The virus wreaked a lot of havoc and many changes had to be made in the society to curb its spread.
Despite the high number of infected people and casualties, it is interesting that a lot of people still believe that the pandemic is a scam, particularly in Nigeria.
Just recently, popular comic actor, John Okafor aka Mr Ibu, shared his thoughts about the coronavirus in a recent interview with The Nation.
According to the film star, the coronavirus is a scam and it does not exist in Nigeria. During the interview, Mr Ibu said that he sees no reason for Nigerians to be involved in COVID-19 and that it is for Nigerians in diaspora to partake in the ‘devilish program’.
He 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 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.
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.”
Speaking further, Mr Ibu said that he is not afraid of the virus and that he still lives his life normally. He also said that nobody has died from COVID-19 in his area.
He said: “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.”
When asked about the rising number of cases each day as released by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Mr Ibu said that he has never seen anybody who died from COVID-19 or any burial held for someone who died as a result of the virus.

He 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.”
In the latest stats released by the NCDC, there has been 33,616 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Nigeria and 754 people have died. See below:
