Zamfara State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari has said that the outbreak of Cerebrospinal Meningitis ‘C’ in Nigeria is an act of God.

Yari said, on Tuesday, April 4, that various sins, including the sin of fornication committed by Nigerians cause God to send the epidemic.

“However, because people refused to stop their nefarious activities, God now decided to send Type C virus, which has no vaccination,” the governor said.

“People have turned away from God and he has promised that ‘if you do anyhow, you see anyhow’ that is just the cause of this outbreak as far as I am concerned,” he added.
