The leader of Ogboni confraternity, Oba Abdul Olakisan Adetoyese has described the Coronavirus pandemic as a spiritual attack, expressing his readiness to fix the situation by cleansing the land and appeasing the gods.
Oba Abdul made this known on Friday through a press statement, stating that the virus was not ordinary and required a spiritual solution.
He said: “I am ready to appease the gods through rituals in some selected cities within the South West region as a means of solving the epidemic.
“The disease was not an ordinary one and it demands spiritual solution to send it packing. Such terrible epidemic in the past had always been tackled through spiritual means even when there was no medical or scientific know-how.
“I, therefore offer to embark on spiritual activities to curb the disease in the country, I am also willing to meet with some selected Governors in the South West on ways to avert the spread of the disease.”
He called on traditional rulers and other religious leaders especially Muslims and Christians to also embark on spiritual activities to curb the menace of Coronavirus ravaging the entire world.
