Nollywood actor, JIM IYKE has apologised for his recent comments regarding the deadly Ebola VIRUS. Jim fled Liberia’s capital city, Monrovia, some days ago, over the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in the country.
He shared a photo in which he was wearing a mask and captioned it:
“Monrovia, unfinished biz (BUSINESS); Leavin(g) tonite(tonight). Nt (Not) ashamed to admit. Tis ish(issue) scares the Jesus outta me. #Ebola!!!!”
Jim was heavily criticised for his comments and attitude over the very sensitive issue….
In his apology statement he says:
“May I humbly apologize if my comments on Ebola – based on fear – were taken out of context.” The last thing I wanted to do was to alarm anyone.
My heart goes out to all the families who have been affected by the Ebola virus – those who have lost their lives or loved ones, those who are still bravely fighting the disease and all of the communities who are battling to keep the infection under control. You are all in my prayers.
As I TRAVEL constantly across continents, most recently USA, Senegal, Liberia, Ghana, Gambia, I have been screened where and when necessary along with the other passengers and I believe it is the responsibility of every citizen to be vigilant and help contain the outbreak by following the advice of the local and international medical professionals and government officials”.
