Ebola: Twitter users call for Jim Iyke to be quarantined

The actor was wearing a face mask and sitting in the first class lounge of the Monrovia airport.

Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke, on Wednesday posted on Twitter a picture of himself on a flight from Liberia.

The actor was wearing a face mask and sitting in the first class lounge of the Monrovia airport.

He captioned the picture: Not ashamed to admit this scares the Jesus outta me #Ebola.

There are fears that the virus has spread to Nigeria following the death of Liberian, Pat Sawyer, at a Lagos hospital.

Mr. Sawyer who flew into Lagos for a conference, told authorities that he may have contracted the virus after visiting Liberia for his sister’s burial.

Twitter users expressed their fears that Jim Iyke may be allowed back into the country without proper health verification.

@icalldibbz tweeted: Please ooo, James Ikechukwu aka Jim Iyke should be quarantined.

Another Twitter user @avaberry said: Jim Iyke or not he should be tested.

Although wearing an expensive face mask, people noted that the actor was wearing a short sleeve shirt at the airport. The virus is known to be passed through body fluids.

    what does this small boy know about military operations and mutiny? Those soldiers have committed a grave offence by shooting at their officer whether with intention or not. This is the problem with the law…it sets rebellious people like this soldier free. I am sure the 12 Soldiers must be from the South that’s why everybody is rising up now to defend them. idiots.

      Your ignorance goes to show that your a small boy when it comes to matters such as this. As it stands this is an issue of law and the law governs the conduct of everyone including military personnel. Whether you like it or not doesn’t concern anyone.
