Professor Ayodele Israel Adeleye, a former lecturer with the Department of Microbiology, Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital (ABUTH), Zaria insisted that he had found a solution to the global pandemic called coronavirus.
The Kaduna-based scientist, on Monday, April 13, urged the federal government to produce five victims for free treatment in order to further prove his claim, The Guardian reports.
The professor while noting there was a three-day window for the cure discovery, stated that his COVID-19 cure is very much real and the next after God in terms of effectiveness.
He said: “If the government brings in five people with COVID-19, I will treat them for free, right in front of your cameras. If the world adopts my cure, the lockdown in the world will end.”
Adeleye insisted that for a patient to be completely cured of the disease, it would take between three and five days.
The scientist explained that though he could not run a clinical trial for the cure on animals, five people have already been treated successfully.
He was quoted as saying: "About five people, including my former students who knew me with research, have been calling and asking if I have something to cure COVID-19.
“One of the patients was having breathing problems already and he took the treatment. In 10 minutes he was already getting better. We told him that this is new, we cannot assure you how long it will give you immunity, so stay quarantined and keep social distancing.”
