Adeyeye Ogunwusi, ooni of Ife, has controversially asked Nigerians to take advantage of the potentials in herbal medicine as curative measures for the novel coronavirus.

This is despite the fact that the World Health Organization (WHO) disproved various dubious claims of treating COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus.

The monarch made the claim in a video shared on his social media page, where he detailed how several natural herbs like onions, African pepper and neem tree among others can be used to treat COVID-19.

The ooni added that the herbs can achieve the desired result when used individually or mixed together to produce an incense.

Speaking on the use of onions, the ooni said: “When sliced and placed at angles of the room, they kill negative energy and fight virus in the house. Also, when sliced and placed under the feet with the help of socks, they neutralise all forms of virus from the body and also strengthen the immune system.”

Buttressing his point, the traditional ruler said such herbs have been used in the past to cure chronic ailments including those related to COVID-19.

“Truly, the world will never remain the same again! To solve this ailment is through natural elements put together above all from nature. It has been tested! I have used it and also used it for some of the chronic Corona patients with testimonials,” he wrote.

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. They are the same as our ancient readings that have not failed us till date. On this throne, I work very closely with all the nations of the world most especially the nation of Cuba. Centuries go by, the nation of Cuba hold dearly the tenets of our ancestors and rely on the blessings of the mystery of nature, and as a result they have the best medical care in the world. They are the ONLY country that have come out boldly to help the world. The Almighty is above religion and he is moving now, the world will now respect nature WHOLLY. Remember nature does not need you, we all need nature to survive. Truly, the world will NEVER remain the same again!!! To solve this ailment is through natural elements put together above all from nature. It has been tested!!! I have used it and also used it for some of the chronic Corona patients with testimonials. 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. 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 #Covid19

The ooni also recalled that the outbreak of the pandemic was predicted in June last year.

“Coronavirus Solution. 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,” he said.

“Please don not take this 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.

“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.”

His comment comes on the heels of ongoing efforts to find a vaccine for the ravaging disease. Nigeria presently has 131 confirmed cases of the virus with global death toll hitting 36,000.
