A baffling video is currently making round the internet which shows Governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu in an interview with a journalist stating that novel Coronavirus won’t find its way into his State because it’s the only Nigerian State mentioned in the Bible.
Dr. Ikpeazu continues to prove his point that in the former cases of Monkey Pox and Ebola, no citizen of Abia State was infected or reported as infected with the diseases.
And with that believe, the number one Abia State citizen stated without any doubt that there will not be any Coronavirus case in Abia as the infected cases escalate.
Watch his words below as shared by a Twitter user, @AkinOlarj;

Meanwhile, in the comment section, ValidUpdates observed some weary comments from Nigerians who think Dr Okezie Ikpeazu is far from a fact that if some preventive measures are not put in place in Abia, Coronavirus will hit hard.
Tracing with an instance to Israel whose name almost filled the Bible and has recently recorded over 700 cases, some commenters assert that the pandemic disease knows no bound and can hit anyone anywhere and anytime.
