    They will leave the same way they came. Imagine the death toll, if this disease enters Nigeria?

  2. Hi stella, once again.. im of the opinion that this is a conspiracy theory to force the people under the control of the elites controlling d world.
    There are videos all over facebook, proving that the vacine has killed more people than the so called virus. All these are depopulation methods, as we are getting too much in the world, and theres need to control and subdue people... esp as theres a mass awakening going on, from religious lies and government evil. Shey now theres hologram working fully well... they will soon project d false jesus in d sky for gullibles to be broken. Watch more videos online.. open ur mind.

  3. People rarely wear mask these days😞even in event centers almost like everything is back to normal.God help us.

  4. Nobi only, e go remain omega. These people just dey catch cruise with this virus

  5. How many variants wan dey now???? God, my household & I are under Your everlasting shield.

  6. God safe us, mask up people 🙏

  7. Always use your mask guys..,May God continue to protect us
