Nigerian University Don Discovers The 'Cure For Coronavirus And Lassa Fever'

A Nigerian university professor has claimed he has found the cure for the rampaging coronavirus and lassa fever
According to a report by TheCable, Professor of Virology, Maduike Ezeibe of the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, MOUAU, who once claimed to have discovered therapy for the cure of HIV/AIDS, said that his therapy has the potency to cure the dreaded coronavirus ravaging China and some Asian countries.

Ezeibe who is the Dean, College of Veterinary Medicine, MOUAU, made the claims Thursday in a statement, adding that the therapy can also cure Lassa fever.

The professor of Virology who gave the chemical equation of the therapy as (AI4(SiO4)3+3Mg2SiO4-2AI2Mg3(SiO4)3) said “it’s a mechanism for curing Covid -19 and Lassa fever”.

On how the therapy works, Professor Ezeibe explained that “electrostatic attraction would make electrically charged medicines mop pathogens which have opposite charges, is a known scientific fact and that viruses and abnormal (infected /tumor) cells are electrically charged is now known.

” Covid-19 virus and Lassa fever virus (DNA viruses) are negatively charged . Small sizes of viruses enable them infect cells, inaccessible to big molecules. So, existing antiviral medicines need immunity to complement their effects but some viruses cause immune deficiency.

As a silicate, AMS also normalises immunity and as a stabilizing agent it enhances efficacy of antimicrobials to achieve effective treatment secondary infections.

“Effective treatment of secondary infections would cure any viral /abnormal cell diseases including Covid -19 and Lassa fever “, the statement read.

Also, Professor Ezeibe challenged countries who are being ravaged by coronavirus to come and take his therapy for clinical trial on their patients.

He expressed confidence that the therapy which had already proved reliable in the treatment of HIV/AIDS would make coronavirus a thing of the past.

Asked about the cost of treatment, Professor Ezeibe said “cost is not an issue for now “, maintaining that what is of moment is to bring cure to the thousands of patients already infested with the virus.

Ezeibe however, said those already infested with coronavirus should not come to Nigeria to access the therapy to avoid spread of the virus.

He rather advised that their countries should make arrangements on how to obtain the therapy for their nationals.

#Sexforgrades - The ‘Cold Room’ Where Lecturers ‘Sexually Harass’ Students (Video)

A video clip has emerged online which shows the ‘inside’ of the cold room, where lecturers ‘sexually harass’ students.

According to Dr. Boniface, the cold room is located at the upper angle of UNILAG’s staff room.

Following the revelation in the ‘Sex for Grade’ documentary video released by BBC Africa Eye, the University of Lagos has shut-down the ‘Cold Room’, where lecturers allegedly sexually assaulted students.

The development was announced in a statement issued on Monday by the Principal Assistant Registrar (Communication Unit) of the university, Taiwo Oloyede.

The ‘Cold Room’ was mentioned by a lecturer of the school, Boniface Igbeneghu, in a documentary filmed discretely by the BBC.

Recall that in the BBC investigative documentary, Igbeneghu described the room as a place where lecturers meet to “touch students’ breast” at the staff club of the university.

”They call the place cold room,” he said. He then explained that female students must pay to have good grades.

Also in the statement issued by the Principal Assistant Registrar (Communication Unit) of the university, Taiwo Oloyede, assured members of the public that any other lecturer mentioned ”in the full version of the operation”, will also be suspended to ensure a proper investigation is carried out.

”The University is embarrassed and dissociates itself totally from this act(s) and any inappropriate behaviour of staff with female students and vice versa,” she said.

She said the university has a well-articulated “Policy on Sexual Harassment, Sexual and Romantic Relationships”.

”A copy of the University Sexual Harassment Policy was distributed to all members of staff and can also be obtained on the University website she said.

She said various committees have been set up to investigate reports received ”and those found guilty/culpable were sanctioned”.

“To ensure our students are aware of the various opportunities for reporting any form of sexual harassment or misconduct towards them, the University organises an orientation programme for all new entrants sensitising them of the University’s zero-tolerance policy and acquainting them with the mechanisms for reporting,” she said.

She said the University Counselling Centre, Medical Centre and Division of Students’ Affairs, amongst other organs, have been well-positioned to address complaints by students.

”These organs have cut off the bureaucracy limiting the effectiveness of the Policy, by the direct reporting system of these Centres to the Vice-Chancellor. The University encourages students who have evidence to come forward. They are assured of their anonymity and safety,” she said.

However, in a thread posted on Twitter, SERAP called on the university authorities to immediately suspend Mr Boniface within seven days or face legal actions.

“BREAKING: We’re today asking the University of Lagos authorities to promptly & thoroughly investigate allegation of #SexForGrades involving senior lecturer, Faculty of Arts, & head pastor of a Foursquare Gospel Church in Lagos, Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu.

Sex therapist, Hauwa Saidu Mohammed popularly known as Jaruma has revealed how much some famous supporters of Tacha, disqualified Big Brother Naija Housrmate, have made to support to her.

The disclaimer reads, “ Good afternoon, please kindly help us’ Titans’ pass this information to Queen J, that she should not release any money to Tacha management, They have been using Tacha and lying about donation people made for her. Please Queen J should not release any money if she does not see Tacha one on one.”
