As the world intensifies its battle against the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu and the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Aloy Ejimakor, has asked Igbo people of Nigeria to "go home and lock your doors".
Allnews reports that the outspoken legal practitioner enjoined his tribesmen to adhere to the social-distancing guidelines.
He as well went scriptural in offering his advice.
Confirmed cases of coronavirus in Nigeria now stands 36 as at the time of filing this report.
As of 23 March, more than 360,000 cases of COVID-19 have been reported in over 190 countries and territories, resulting in more than 15,400 deaths and over 100,000 recoveries.
See the tweet on Ejimakor's known handle on Sunday below:
Dear #Ndigbo, All mankind, hear this: #SocialDistancing is BIBLICAL. For it is written in #Isaiah26v20 “Go HOME, my people, and lock your doors! HIDE yourselves for a little while until the LORD’s anger has passed”. Even the #Pope is social-distancing. Why won’t you?
