Nigerians Knock Ooni of Ife Over Coronavirus Cure

Many Nigerians have stormed social media to criticise Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, over his claim that he has a cure for the global Coronavirus pandemic.

Oba Ogunwusi on Monday took to his Instagram account to announce the cure.

The COVID-19, which has caused over 35,000 deaths globally, currently has no known cure although scientists, globally, are working round the clock to develop a vaccine and treatment for the disease, caused by the coronavirus.

Some drugs have been touted to cure the disease including chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, but scientists and the World Health Organisation (WHO) have warned that such drugs are still in the trial testing phase and should not be considered as a cure yet.

But Ooni said a divine proclamation foretelling the coronavirus pandemic came out to the world on June 6, 2019, during the “World Ifa Festival – Otura Meji”. He then suggested a cure.

Oba Ogunwusi’s claim has, however, generated controversy.
