As you can observe, the average life span of an average Nigerian is short. Most of them died from easily preventable and treatable diseases. Many also died due to poverty and inability to access and afford good healthcare. This is why most advanced countries have free healthcare for their citizens. Nigeria with all her oil wealth cannot look after her citizens.
Even poor Cuba offers free healthcare for all Cubans.
Some of these actors died from car accidents due to bad roads. Deaths from car accidents are extremely low in advanced nations.
These were actors oh. Imagine then what poor people are going through in that hell.
Niger-Area! What a useless country!!!
God go punish anyone that supports evil 'one' Nigeria.
