Singer Simi has said that fear is the only thing Nigerians fear more than religion.
She stated this amidst the coronavirus pandemic which has created great tension in Nigeria.
She tweeted: 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.
With global activities shutting down and people forced to stay at home out of fear of the coronavirus pandemic, Simi added:
“Everything needs to be shut down. now, not later”.
This comes days after she gave an advice to the Federal Government on what to do concerning the virus.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, has announced that the country has recorded its second COVID-19 death.
The centre also announced that the number of cases of the virus has now reached 40.
