Pastor Ibiyeomie also said what Nigeria has is malaria and not Coronavirus.

The cleric also condemned the borders closure and lockdowns declared by the Federal and State Governments due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
He further condemned the use of facemasks even when speaking, describing those who wear the facemasks as “masquerades”.
Pastor Ibiyeomie also advised the Federal Government to give money to other states like was given to Lagos State Government so as to appease the other aggrieved governors.
He made special appeals for governors from oil producing states, saying if monies are giving to other Governors as was given to Gov.Sanwo-Olu, Coronavirus will automatically end.

Nigerian Military Subjecting Children To Unlawful Detention — Amnesty International
Rights group, Amnesty International (AI) has accused the Nigerian military of subjecting children in the northeast ravaged by Boko Haram insurgency to unlawful treatment and detention.
The allegation by Amnesty International was contained in a new report on Tuesday titled, “‘We dried our tears’: Addressing the toll on children of Northeast Nigeria’s conflict”.
According to AI, the 91-page report was based on interviews conducted between November 2019 and April 2020 with more than 230 people affected by the conflict, including 119 who were children when they suffered serious crimes by Boko Haram, the Nigerian military, or both.
The group also added that the report also included 48 children held in military detention for months or years, as well as 22 adults who had been detained with children
“The past decade of bitter conflict between Nigeria’s military and Boko Haram has been an assault on childhood itself in Northeast Nigeria. The Nigerian authorities risk creating a lost generation, unless they urgently address how the war has targeted and traumatized thousands of children,” the statement qouted Joanne Mariner, Acting Director of Crisis Response at Amnesty International, as saying.
The rights group said children in areas under Boko Haram control had been subjected to torture and forced to watch public executions and other brutal punishments.
The report quoted a 17-year-old girl who narrated her life in the Sambisa forest after she escaped Boko Haram captivity for four years: “[My] wicked ‘husband’ always beat me… My daily activities included praying, cooking if there was food, [and] going for Quranic lessons. No movement was allowed, and no visiting friends. It was a terrible experience, and I witnessed different punishments, from shooting to stoning to lashing.”
“She, and most other former child “wives” interviewed – including some who returned with children born during captivity – had received little or no assistance in returning to school, starting livelihoods, or accessing psychosocial support,” Amnesty International said.
The report alleged that children who escaped Boko Haram territory were arbitrarily detained for years in military barracks, in conditions amounting to torture or other ill-treatment.
“Most such detentions are unlawful; children are never charged or prosecuted for any crime and are denied the rights to access a lawyer, appear before a judge, or communicate with their families. The widespread unlawful detentions may amount to a crime against humanity,” the report added.
