Nigerian Comedian, Atunyota Akpobome, popularly known as Alibaba, in an Instagram post warned Nigeria to observe all COVID-19 protocols, saying the virus is real.
Alibaba shared his experience with coronavirus in a video he posted on Monday.
He, however, advised Nigerians to desist from describing the COVID-19 pandemic as a scam.
The comedian also sympathised with all those who have loved a lost one to the virus and appreciated the Lagos State government and other caregivers who are risking their lives.
“Don’t let anyone tell you it’s a scam. I just came out of isolation. Several people died while I was there. Some of my close friends knew and they were very supportive.
“I thank the Lagos State governor @jidesanwoolu and the commissioner for health, the MD of the COVID CENTRE in YABA, the Doctors, especially Dr Nifemi, who are risking their lives to keep us alive. Thanks to all the nurses.
“I want to thank @gbengaadeyinka1stgcon… you are a good friend. @margaretorakwusi@maryamuwai@itsifeanyi and friends to go checked up on me. “COVID is real. Observe all the protocols. People are dying. And it’s not a joke. In fact, anyone who says COVID is a scam is a compound idiot and a fool,” he said. (Tribune)
