According to Yari, because people have refused to stop their nefarious activities, God decided to send Type C virus of the disease which has no vaccination.
Over 300 people have died since the outbreak of the disease.
Yari said this Tuesday when he spoke with state house correspondents after his meeting with President Buhari in Abuja state villa. He said:
"What we used to know as far as meningitis is concerned is the type A virus. The World Health Organisation, WHO, has carried out vaccinations against this type A virus not just in Zamfara, but many other states. However, because people refused to stop their nefarious activities, God now decided to send Type C virus, which has no vaccination.
People have turned away from God and he has promised that ‘if you do anyhow, you see anyhow’ that is just the cause of this outbreak as far as I am concerned. There is no way fornication will be so rampant and God will not send a disease that cannot be cured.”
