Laurreta Onochie and Adesua Etomi-Wellington
Laurreta Onochie, Social Media Aide to President Muhammad Buhari, was on Tuesday tongue-lashed by Adesua Etomi-Wellington, Nollywood thespian and wife of singer, Banky W, the picture of children using cardboard papers as face masks which she shared
Onochie posted the picture on her Twitter page as she beckoned on Nigerians to ensure they wear facemasks.
Wrote Onochie alongside the picture: ”Wearing a mask is not a political statement, it’s not punishment by government. Protect yourself, Wear one. These have made efforts with masking where those of us who are more vulnerable and susceptible to COVID-19 are still swearing that it’s a scam. God bless their efforts”.
Disappointed at the photo of the little children, Adesuwa called Onochie a disgrace both ‘home and abroad’ in a post on her tweeter handle.
Tweeted Adesua: ”You are a disgrace. Both home and abroad. You should be ashamed that these children have to do this with cardboard. Instead of talking about how to tackle poverty so that they can be protected adequately against the virus, you are spewing this nonsense.
Tweeted Adesua that the picture made her so angry; ”brought tears to my eyes and finally proved to me that some persons are dead on the inside. They are so small, so vulnerable and so unprotected. Arghhhhhh. THIS COUNTRY.
“I am finally accepting the fact that some human beings, really are dead on the inside. Didn’t understand how that could even be possible. I’m realizing every day that it is”.
