Nigerian acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has insisted that the current virus (coronavirus) which is causing havoc around the world is caused by corruption.
The virus which is increasing day by day, with around 77,000 cases of COVID-19 and more than 2,600 deaths across the globe.
As the world is still in shock as to what causes it and the cure for it, Nigerian security boss, who as of last week made similar claims, has now renewed his claims that the virus is manmade and a view to infect and destroy other people.
“Somebody actually created corruption-viruses…I mean…coronavirus. Somebody deliberately sat down in the lab and came up with the creation of coronavirus with a view to infect and destroy other people. So what else is more corrupt than that?,” Magu told a parley of academics and stakeholders.
“So, it’s created by a corrupt mind, so I insist that coronavirus is caused by corruption,” He added.
