Gbenga said he has conducted investigations and discovered that the claims of the potency of charms are all fake. He wrote on Twitter:
"I will be at #Ijebu Igbo, Ogun State Park at 12pm on Friday. Anyone with any evidence for Juju/Voodoo can meet me there. Bring your amulets or your Juju priests. Come and win 1 million Naira. This tour will happen at Ibadan and Anambra alike. They said we can't go public. We will. It's worth noting that I've conducted numerous investigations from individuals to Juju priests and they all turned up all fake."
