Ewedu Leaves Cures Ebola, LUTH Professor Claims

It was bitter-kola, then salt water for bath and now, a consultant in Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) claims ewedu leaves can cure Ebola. It would be interesting to see how costly the leaves will be when this rumor goes viral.
PM News reports that Prof Adebukola Adefule Oshitelu, a professor of Ophthalmology at LUTH claims the plant can cure the Ebola Virus Disease.
She made the claim at the 2014 African Traditional Medicine organised by NAFDAC at Ikeja, Lagos state.

“The qualities inside Ewedu is so much that it will kill Ebola by preventing the virus from replicating and destroying more organs in the body. This would immediately stop the symptoms such as high fever, stooling and vomiting. Ultimately, leading to the cure,”

“The way it will be prepared will be different from the normal way they cook it. It should be washed and rinsed with liquid vinegar, afterwards blend and cook with drinkable water. No salt, potash or seasoning should be added, take 25cl of the concoction a week and it would boost a person’s immunity so that they become impregnable to the virus,”

The Director General of The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Paul Orhii ably represented by the Director of Laboratory Service, Stella Denloye was quick to warn that the agency had banned the advertisement of drugs and herbal treatments for the deadly virus

“Unpatriotic Nigerians who continue to engage in illegal advert of their products and those making false claims not evaluated by NAFDAC should desist from acts misleading the unsuspecting public. I want to warn and inform them that NAFDAC would deal decisively with anyone found to contravene,”
