According to the monarch, on June 6, 2019, during the World Ifa Festival, it was predicted that a pandemic war would be raged on the world but people failed to believe.
"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."
"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," Ooni proclaimed.
The monarch also revealed that he is working with alternative medicine practitioners and is ready to offer advice on the traditional solution to the Covid-19 pandemic.
