‘I Insist That Coronavirus Is Caused By Corruption’ – The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) , Ibrahim Magu , insists that the hemorrhagic coronavirus disease currently ravaging the world is caused by corruption.
As the medical community grapples with the cause and cure for the viral disease , Nigeria’s anti-graft czar–who was bashed last week for linking coronavirus to corruption–has doubled down on his controversial take.
“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.Advertisement
“So , it’s created by a corrupt mind , so I insist that coronavirus is caused by corruption.”
Magu’s press team did attack the media for reporting the EFCC boss’ initial remarks , protesting that he had been quoted out of context.
