A monarch, the Olu of Ibogun in the Ibogun-Coker local council development area (LCDA) in Ogun State, Oba Fakayode Adesina Faluade, has urged the World Health Organisation (WHO) to beam its searchlight for the cure of COVID-19 on herbal medication.

He said that he produced herbal medicines, which can cure the disease and asked the federal or state government to bring any confirmed case of the virus for his treatment.

Oba Faluade, who stated this during the town’s annual consultations with Ifa at his Ibogun Palace, said that he had carried out a series of herbal researches for the cure of coronavirus pandemic now ravaging the global community.

The renowned Ifa priest stated that he had been able to find the cure for the disease and urged the relevant authorities to verify his claims.

The traditional ruler stressed that he had in his custody some local herbs for not only the cure of the pandemic, but also for its prevention.

He appealed to both the federal and state governments to send any two victims of coronavirus in their custody to him for treatment, stressing that he was prepared to get the victims cured without collecting anything from the government.

Oba Faluade, who is the promoter of the annual Ifa Olokun Festival, assured both Nigeria and the global community of the efficacy of his herbs to cure the virus.

While urging Nigerians to adhere strictly to the global precautionary measures to check the scourge, he commended the governments at both the state and federal levels for their prompt actions against the disease spread.

While dwelling on the Ifa divination for the cure of the disease, he explained that the gods were angry with the people and required necessary appeasements, adding that Ifa also predicted the end of the pandemic as soon as necessary appeasements were made.
