While the whole world grapple with pandemic caused by CORONAVIRUS Nigeria is again faced with another crisis as a fanatical group of Muslims based in Jos PLATEAU state has been claiming that the whole thing is farce and that CORONAVIRUS does not exist.
Sheikh Yahaya Jingir-led sect based in Jos PLATEAU state has been claiming that CORONAVIRUS does not exist and that is the reason why they will not obey the State government directive that there should be no religious gatherings.
Indeed they have defied the ban on social and religious gatherings and have been attending their normal prayers.
Coming at a time when the initiative to get the Virus contained has been coming from state Governors, there is no doubt that the Plateau Government has a major task on it’s hands.
Unfortunately, the task has not been made easy by a Federal Government that has again refused to offer leadership in such a critical situation.
The State government has played deaf up till now pretending not to hear the songs and chants of Sheikh Yahaya Jingir-led sect.
