According to the video uploaded on youtube by My Africa Tv, Nigerian pastor David Kingleo Elijah told his congregation that he will be going to China to destroy coronavirus.

Unfortunately, there is insufficient evidence available to prove whether the Nigerian pastor had visited china.

Thousands of social media users have shared a picture of a man hooked up to a dialysis machine alongside claims that he is a Nigerian pastor who travelled to China to destroy coronavirus and was hospitalised. By analysing the information, according to BCC, the man in the picture is a Nigerian actor popularly known as Pastor Ajidara who died due to renal failure in 2017.
