Pastor David Ibiyomie, the Senior Pastor of Salvation Ministries has said that malaria is killing people in Nigeria and not coronavirus as believed in many quarters.
He said: “People make so much noise about Coronavirus, malaria kills more people in Nigeria than coronavirus and doesn’t think Nigeria has the said virus, why closing borders?”
According to the cleric, Nigerians are suffering from malaria and people say its coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Ibiyomie made this assertion during one of his online Church services.
“Coronavirus is a virus that is the corona. People are making noise about coronavirus. To me, it is rubbish. Did we make noise about malaria?
“Malaria kills more people in Nigeria than in coronavirus. Everyday people die from malaria. In the villages, they die. So what are we talking about coronavirus, closing borders up and down?
“Nigeria does not even have it. I don’t think Nigeria has it. Because you have heard Dokpesi say he had it but it was malaria tablet that they gave him. So if it is a coronavirus, why will they give him malaria tablets?”Pastor Ibiyomie said.
