In other news, Nollywood actor and politician, Yul Edochie has wondered why most Nigeria Policemen don’t wear protective gears like face masks and hand gloves while carrying out duties amid Coronavirus Pandemic.
The well outspoken actor took to his social media page to express his concern as he wrote:
