Veteran Nollywood actor and comedian, John Okafor, better known Mr Ibu has joined the growing list of many Nigerians doubting the presence of the dreaded Corona Virus in the country.
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 diaspora will have to partake in this devilish program.
Continuing, he said: “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.
On the rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in Nigeria and activities of the NCDC, the actor said:
You cannot, dem say dem say na em me and you dey hear. Even the sickness dey fear us.
