If the Ooni of Ife says he has a possible HERBAL cure for the Coronavirus, government should investigate the claim scientifically. There is no need to insult him or call for his arrest. We haven’t arrested people diagnosing “spiritual attack” or those claiming to perform miracles

Below are comments from others who also shared the sentiment in defense of the monarch asfter some were calling out for his arrest and abusing him online.
The Ooni has presented something. If you can’t use it as preventive herbs, STfU!! And go to the nearest isolation center. No need to drag someone who thought of a way out while you’ve done nothing but troll online. Don’t deliberately be a moron. #COVID19

We killed culture, we killed Trado-medicine, we killed Respect. You have a choice to belief what ever pleases you. The Ooni said it because he believed it. From my Orthodox group a message sent to group members dated 20th of March. #istandwithOoni #ooni pic.twitter.com/uNIXYPw9p3

I don’t think we should be too quick to come to conclusions as regards the coronavirus herbal cure recommended by the Ooni of Ife. We shouldn’t let civilization make us doubt the potency of trado medical discoveries. The best thing to do is to take 1 or 2 cases to Osun to treat.

The Ooni of Ife says he has a possible herbal cure for #COVID19, it is only responsible for government to be curious and give him the support and platform to prove his hypothesis. Don’t discard it as irrelevant or irresponsible.
We’re not curious in this part of the world. pic.twitter.com/Fo8Bi8qRPU
