Ace comedian Atunyota Akpobome (popularly known as Ali Baba), has narrated his experience at the infectious Disease Hospital (IDH) COVID-19 isolation centre in Lagos to debunk claims that COVID-19 is a scam.
The award-winning entertainer on Monday shared his experience while in isolation through his Instagram page.
Ali Baba, who revealed that many people died during his time at the isolation centre, called on Nigerians to adhere to the COVID-19 guidelines put in the place by the federal and state governments.
He said: “The second wave of COVID-19 is deadlier than the one before. People are dying — pastors, doctors, professors, billionaires, poor men, less privileged… people are dying every day. Those numbers you see are not fake.
“I have spoken with people who attended parties and died two days later. COVID-19 is real, don’t let anyone decieve you. Anyone who tells you COVID-19 is scam, don’t trust the person.”
He added: “Don’t let anyone tell you it’s a scam. I just came out of isolation. Several people died while I was there. Some of my close friends knew and they were very supportive.”
