As expected, reactions have been pouring in over the recent video and statement released by The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi on prescriptions that can be followed in tackling COVID-19.
The pandemic virus has forced everyone to stay indoors, crumbling economic activities as well.
The top monarch also revealed that he had worked with chronic corona patients and he had gotten testimonials.
He, therefore, called on the authorities not to take this discovery for granted as he had partnered with nations like Cuba nad a Nigerian company that is exporting the product outside.
After releasing a video and statement to how the dreaded virus can be tackled, has been mixed reaction in the Twitter community.

Ooni of Ife says these are possible traditional herbs(Agbo) that can help defeat corona virus #COVID19 . I think the government should consider this after thorough Scientific research?. Another Isolation center for Osun state. ?

The only reason many would abuse Ooni on his prescription is because they lack native intelligence, many of us were raised on the application of herbs when white man’s medicine failed. pic.twitter.com/xWB3kyAO19

Ooni is influential/rich enough to fund a scientific research (alone or jointly with other monarchs) into his claims that those herbs can cure Coronavirus, he can then present his findings to NAFDAC and the FG.
Unfounded claims shouldn’t be coming from a figure like him.

Before we go against the Ooni’s Harb prescription for #COVID19, there should be a test to carryout before dragging him. Ooni clearly explained how selected herbs can be used, There was no magic in that, it was pure science. Put this and that together and get this.

Ooni says he has cure for Covid-19, but you open your big mouth to disagree because it’s not my Josh from Brooklyn that said so. I’ve literally seen people dissapear ,Egg turn to fire, I have seen some1 been macheted and there was not one single cut . The power in Herbs is plenty

Your Pastors can
Make the blind to see
Make the lame to walk
Make the deaf to hear
Make the dumb to talk
Even bring the dead back to life
Ordinary Corona Virus
They run away even anointing oil isn’t working again
But you have the mind to mock Ooni becoz he suggests HERBAL CURE

Trump said chloroquine will cure #COVID19 , we hailed and clapped him but Ooni of Ife is giving us herbs that will cure the same virus buy we are saying he’s talking in the nonsense. Let’s be honest, he’s talking in the jargons ??

One sad reality about people from my generation is that they think they are brilliant and woke so they can disrespect and lash elders words that can even make them consider suicide.
many of you are actually gullible and stupid. Aside from the position, Ooni of Ife is an 1/3

These claims are WRONG.
The Ooni is NOT a medical doctor or a virologist. This is abuse of office to mislead and misinform the public.
You will never hear the Queen of England, the Sultan of Brunei, the King of Saudi Arabia or the Emir of Abu Dhabi say such dangerous nonsense. https://t.co/8W9Wp5TQ4f

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.
