Cape Town – A Nigerian professor from Novena University in Delta State on Monday claimed that the novel coronavirus pandemic was nothing but a scam perpetrated by the West.
According to the Guardian Nigeria, Professor Cyril Otoohhiaus, whose field is genetics and animal breeding, stated that the virus was created in a laboratory and was not a natural organism as claimed by the World Health Organization (WHO).
He was speaking during his lecture on Covid-19 at Government House in Kogi State at the invitation of governor Yahaya Bello.
Otoohhiaus claimed that Westerners were running this scam to generate trillions of dollars at the expense of Africa and other parts of the world.
“Viruses are made by man to achieve specific purposes. That is why the organisation (WHO) cannot provide answers to virtually all questions concerning the coronavirus posed to it.
