Controversy as Ooni of Ife discovers herbal solutions for dreaded virus COVID-19

Nigerians have expressed mixed reactions to the claims made by Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusithe Ooni of Ife, who has come up with a list of local herbs purportedly potent enough to stop COVID-19.

Indeed, the claims made by the highly respected traditional ruler has divided opinions on social media.

In fact, the Ooni claimed that a prophecy on the rampaging COVID-19 had earlier been issued nearly a year ago.

‘‘A divine proclamation came out to the world last year June 6th 2019, during the World Ifa Festival – Otura Meji. We foretold about the impending rage of this invisible pandemic war, but few heard us. Please note that Efod/ Urim and Thurim are in the holy Books.”

Subsequently, he had urged Nigerians to focus more on herbal medicine as a solution to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Specifically, he had made the claim in a couple of videos posted on his Twitter andInstagram pages; where he detailed how several natural herbs like dogoyaro, onions, bitter leaf, African pepper and neem tree, among others; can be used to treat COVID-19.

Further, the monarch had claimed that the herbs can achieve a potent result against COVID-19; if used individually or mixed together to produce an incense.

As a matter of fact, the monarch has also disclosed his determination to work with willing partners in packaging and distributing the herbal remedies globally.

I’m also currently working with Yem Kem International (Alternative Medicine Expert) pharmaceutical company for the packaging and distribution of these globally.
It is about time to save the world now. Tomorrow may be too late.

Let’s all keep safe.#Coronavirus #COVID19245

‘‘PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THIS FOR GRANTED (The world did with the warning Last Year June). I also challenge researchers both in Nigeria and the world to make these natural herbs into clinical medicine and extract the vaccines from it. I am ready to work with them and provide huge access to the herbs. It is real and it works. I have a lot gathered together for the use of mankind,’’ he wrote on Twitter.

Indeed, the claims by the revered Nigerian monarch had created a mini-controversy on social media. Shortly after the posts were made, Nigerians had began weighing in with their opinions.

In fact, while some hailed the Ooni for his suggestions which they claimed was efficacious and worth trying out; another school of thought has lampooned the monarch’s recommendations. Also, the contentious nature of the claims may have played a part in the controversy.

Meanwhile, 1st News has put together some of the comments on the raging controversy.

I hope the Ooni is arrested for pushing unconfirmed alternative health care that can lead to loss of lives.

I saw the video where the Ooni clearly explained how selected herbs can be used to cure #COVID19. There was no magic in that, it was pure science. If you put this and this together, you will get this result. What is science again? These Westerners brainwashed us too much.

I’m not surprised that Ooni of Ife said he has alternative cure for #COVID19. This is not his first time of spitting gibberish. This same man once said he discovered a waterfall with seven colours in Ife. This is a wrong time for him to join league of liars

Why is Ooni of Ife not trending?? He said he has the cure to covid19 and he’s not trending. Kabiesi even said he has tested it.
Is it that we love chasing clouts so much that we forgot to trend things that will impart the world??

The ANALYSIS @The_Analysis01

This app na bastard, it really gives people a whole lot of audacity to talk to anyone one o, see this Egbere talking to Ooni like mad person Osiun

Taiwolosophy ✪@TAIWOZEEZ

Herbs is also form of medicine, many modern medicine are derive from herbs but we should be careful following any medicine or herbs without trial.

The Ooni claim for cure should be on trial and approved first before people start taking what might damage their system more.

So do you all really think the Ooni will want to ridicule his seat just to announce a fake cure for corona virus? Let’s give him some benefits of the doubt.

I swear!! I somewhat dreamt that sulfur could be a cure for Corona virus, if you could access my browsing history the past week you will see, I’ve been reading up on sulfur. I believe the Ooni

Equally important, the call by a certain Twitter user for the Ooni to be arrested had added to the controversy. In fact, a number of other users had taken umbrage at the suggestion.

Ayobami@dondekojo

I hope the Ooni is arrested for pushing unconfirmed alternative health care that can lead to loss of lives.

Deep_Wifter@HHorlawahle

Ooni should be arrested

Ooni arrested?, Do you want to be unfortunate… Be careful Bro, we don’t Joke with our tradition here, you as a yoruba man ought to understand this. The man made a suggestion which i think should be verified. We wl definitely find the cure and humanity wl win

Alan@Harbiodinho

Apparently, Ooni Has The Cure For What’s Currently Killing Thousands Across The World And They’re Not Even Giving Him Benefit Of The Doubt?

What If This Is The Way God Wants To Lift Nigeria’s Economy High Above Major Ones In The World?

I’m Somewhat Optimistic About This…
