32 other people who were on the bus with him have been tested, the report added.

 

Following the report of his death, Hantavirus became a trending topic on social media, with people panicking that it was another COVID-19 and could become a new pandemic.

However, it’s been reported that Hantavirus is not a new virus and is not airborne, unlike coronavirus.

Hantavirus is contracted when a person comes into contact with rodents that carry the virus.

“Rodent infestation in and around the home remains the primary risk for hantavirus exposure. Even healthy individuals are at risk for HPS infection if exposed to the virus,” Centre for Disease Control and Prevention said in its website.

Although HPS can’t be passed on from person to person, it can be contracted if someone touches their eyes, nose or mouth after touching rodent droppings, urine, or nesting materials, states Centers for Disease Control and Prevention fact sheet.

According to Kenya Updates, Pastor Mboro has offered to embark on the dangerous journey and save mankind only for a sum of $100,000 (₦36,700,000) to cover his transport logistics.

 

“I am ready to save mankind,” Pastor Mboro said, “I have seen a vision of how the Coronavirus demon looks like and I will defeat it,”

The pastor also stated that there was no need to waste money on research as the real cause of the disease that has infected 640,589 people with 29,848 deaths is a demon in hell which he has volunteered to kill.

“There is no need for worry and expensive research, the real problem is the demon causing this disease and I am ready to kill it once and for all,” Pastor Mboro said.

 

The pastor gave an ultimatum saying the money should come no later than the second week in April.

“I wanted to be Nigeria’s youngest billionaire at 18” – Uncle who killed twin nephews for rituals confesses

Published

on

18-year-old Kelvin Uzor, has been arrested for the alleged killing of his brother’s identical twins for money-making ritual on March 6, 2020, in Oko Ogbele, Delta State.

 

The police revealed that Uzor killed the seven-year-old boys, then removed their penis, eyes, tongues and hands, which he allegedly hurriedly took to a native doctor in Anambra State.

Kelvin, however, has denied killing the twins, insisting that it was his friend one Onuwa Olisah, who killed them.

 

Incidentally, Onuwa’s 11-year-old brother, Iweka Olisah, has also confessed to seeing his elder brother with a bloodied machete.

Ritual

Kelvin said that his only crime was in attending the meeting with Onuwa and others, where they deliberated on how to carry out money making ritual. He claimed to have backed out of the devilish plan at the last minutes.

 

He said,

“My hope was to make money, drive big cars and build a house. I wanted to become a young chief because most of these young boys did not work as hard as I did and now they are millionaires. I’m a farmer and it requires hard work.

I was not even making enough money for myself. This was why I agreed to be part of the meeting. Onuwa convinced me that was the fastest way to become rich. He said that most of our colleagues made money through that means.

My greatest mistake was that I did not inform my family when Onuwa suggested that we should use the twins. I love those twins so much and their parents are nice.

When we were making arrangement who to use, Onuwa mentioned the twins, I cautioned him, but I didn’t know he would still go ahead with his plan. I have begged my brother to hold on until police arrest Onuwa for him to know that I had nothing to do with the murder of the twins.”

 

 

Since the kidnap and subsequent murder of the twins, Onuwa, who is a neighbour, has since disappeared into thin air.
