NAFDAC to Prosecute Professor who Claimed Ewedu is a Cure To Ebola

Several individuals have claimed to have the panacea for the disease. Kolanut, salt, Ewedu, and other food items have been rumoured to cure Ebola.
The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has vowed to crack down on people who make such erroneous claims, beginning with the professor who claimed Ewedu can cure Ebola.
Director General of NAFDAC, Paul Orhii made the announcement yesterday, Vanguard reports. Orhii reportedly stated that NAFDAC would arrest and prosecute a Nigerian Professor of Ophthalmology at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, (LUTH) who made the false claims about Ewedu.
One consequence of these unsupported and possibly fraudulent claims is that people may be misled into a false sense of invincibility on account of eating Ewedu or bitter kola and drop their guards. This is a national embarrassment and the Agency will not take such uncorroborated claims by supposedly learned people lightlyNAFDAC will immediately arrest and prosecute any Nigerian making such unverified claims as that could mislead the public,” he said. In its efforts to crack down on individuals exploiting the Ebola situation, NAFDAC has also arrested three Nigerian business men who imported fake Ebola kits and expired hand sanitizers into the country.

Lol, this is very funny, from salt water to bitter-cola and now ewedu, more are still coming…


The Opthalmologist didn't categorically say Ewedu could cure ebola grin, she only said it could increase one's immunity. But she should have consulted her "Ogas" at the top before making such claims sha.


are the serious, they should find solution to this Ebola Virus.
