That picture alone is enough to give a muffuguh nightmares for a week, but merely contemplating the impending global Ebola pandemic is INFINITELY more terrifying.

Thanks for the tips, man. The confirmation of a Liberian Ebola victim in Lagos, Nigeria is the worst possible news, given the sheer population density of that metropolis.

Stop eating in restaurants for now. You dont know if the food handlers are sick or washed their hands, or even washed the plates well. Boil all water before drinking and wash your hands often with better antibacterial hand wash. Goodluck people. God na wa o.

So Ebola has now arrived in Nigeria! Must every bad thing come to Nigeria? If it were a good thing would Liberians have exported it to us? Islamic terrorism, which we used to hear in Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan, has now come to stay in Nigeria. Why can't we import good things? Those who brought that Ebola man to Nigeria should better send him back where he came from. If Ebola is a gift we are free to reject it. Abi na by force?

Too many ''killers'' out there nowadays..

If it's not a plane crash, it's a bomb blast. If it's neither of them then it'd be Ebola virus.. All this in addition to d normal Hiv/Aids, armed robbery, ritual killing menace, etc.

My prayer everyday is ''Lord when I finally do exit this place, let me do it in peace''.

Thank you op for the tips. #God protect everyone of us.
