Nigerian singer Simi is demanding the country go into full lockdown to prevent the spread of deadly coronavirus.
According to her, the ban on public gatherings is not enough to curb the spread as Nigerians are noted for not respecting authority.
“If they insist on going to church, show them the stories of churches abroad where the virus spread. These religious heads need to start being more responsible.”
“Don’t spread fear, they said. At this point, we might need to change that strategy because the only thing Nigerians respect more than religion is fear. Everything needs to shut be down. Not later. Now!” she wrote on Twitter.
Nigeria have 42 confirmed cases of covid-19 with one death.
