Gov Yahaya Bello Shows No Fear, Attends Arotile’s Burial With No Face Mask

1 Mins read

Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, on Thursday, flouted the COVID-19 guidelines as he attended the final burial of Flying Officer Tolulope Arotile, in Abuja without wearing a face mask.

Arotile, who was Nigeria’s first female combat helicopter pilot, died last week in a freak accident at the Nigerian Air Force Base in Kaduna State.

Top military officials including the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Gabriel Olonisakin; the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshall Abubakar Sadique; and other dignitaries all wore masks in compliance with the Covid-19 guidelines issued by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.

However, Bello, who represented Arotile’s home state of Kogi at the event, was clad in a white agbada and cap without a face mask.

The governor’s wife, who sat next to him, however, wore a mask.

In several photos posted on social media, the governor is seeing exchanging pleasantries with VIPs without wearing a mask.

Bello has been having a publicised feud with the NCDC as regards the COVID-19 guidelines.

He has constantly denied the existence of COVID-19 in Kogi State despite being confronted with evidence by federal health officials.

Earlier in the month, the governor said COVID-19 was a hoax.

The governor had said, “Do not give in to fear and evil of the issues of COVID-19. It is a disease that has been imported, propagated and forced on the people for no just cause. Nothing kills faster than fear. I urge you all not to accept cut and paste as COVID-19.

“It is only out to create fear, panic, and pandemic, orchestrated to reduce and shorten the lifespan of the people. Whether medical experts and scientists, believe it or not, COVID-19 is out to shorten the life spans of the people. It is a disease propagated by force for Nigerians to accept.”
