Popular filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan has announced that he has received a shot of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.
In an Instagram post on Thursday, the movie director revealed that he took the vaccine on Wednesday.
Afolayan said he took the vaccine despite claims about the alleged side effects of the drugs among those who have been vaccinated.
He also shared a picture of a certificate given to him after taking the vaccine to certify that he has been vaccinated while saying that he is not “scared of death”.
“Don’t take it! Take it! It will allow them to monitor your movements! It will kill your organs! I have taken it! Got the covid vaccine yesterday. Iku to ba fe pami ko ma bo (the death that wants to kill me should come). Do have a blessed day,” he wrote.
Recall that Nigeria received its first batch of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine on March 2.
The National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) had earlier debunked claims of severe side effects relating to the administration of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine in the country.
“No Nigerian so far has developed any known severe side effects following vaccination with AstraZeneca vaccine,” it said.
