I feel this pandemic is partial. There are some people it is ignoring, or has it been bribed.

Outside Nigeria, our leaders are nobodies. It is only in Nigeria they act like village deities.

Look at Ikpeazu owing doctors 19 months allowances but using a convoy of almost 20 vehicles. I'm sure, if he steps on a small girl while boarding that train, she will land him a dirty slap.

Your headline is different from what I read here. Which one of these are you reporting? UK high commission is shutdown by Nigeria (no possible, though), or Nigeria high commission in the uk is shut down.
