Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has said that COVID-19 is an artificial creation which is aimed at causing fear and panic among people.
Bello said this at the third-day prayers for the late Justice Ajana on Tuesday.
Justice Ajana died on Sunday at a hospital in Gwagwalada, Abuja.
He described the disease as worst than banditry, Boko Haram and genocide put together, adding that it was artificial but unfortunately sold to Nigerians.
He advised citizens “not to give in to fear and evil of the issues of COVID-19,” adding that “it is a disease that has been imported, propagated and forced on the people for no just cause.”
He pointed out that nothing kills faster than fear, urging the people not to accept “cut and paste, as COVID-9 is only out to create fear, panic; orchestrated to reduce and shorten the lifespan of the people.
“Whether medical experts and scientist believe it or not, COVID-19 is out to shorten the lifestyle of the people, it is a disease propagated by force for Nigerians to accept.”
