He talked elaborately on the ebola virus, how it is manifested and how deadly it is to the entire human race. He cautioned that it is a very dangerous illness and that the population should avoid eating bush meat, especially bats and monkeys.
On his part Ngabah Eric warned that no one should bring such a illness into their community. He emphasized that if for any reason there is a family member in Nigeria, that person should not come back home now because the borders have been closed.
