Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State says that COVID-19 is an artificial creation that is worse than banditry, Boko Haram and genocide put together.
Bello alleged that COVID-19 was created to cause fear and panic among people, adding that it is unfortunate that it was sold to Nigerians.
The governor said this when he spoke at the third-day prayers for the repose of the soul of late justice Nasir Ajana on Tuesday. Again, he denied that the late state Chief Judge died of coronavirus.
Justice Ajana died on Sunday at a hospital in Abuja.
He advised citizens “not to give in to fear and evil of the issues of COVID-19.
“It is a disease that has been imported, propagated and forced on the people for no just cause”.
According to him, 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.
He added, “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.”
