A powerful Nigerian fetish priest couldn’t control his emotions as he wept bitterly after he tested positive to the deadly Coronavirus.
The renowned community fetish priest was one of the people who were identified through contact tracing in Lagos, Nigeria. As reported by Nigerian authorities, the fetish priest was subjected to 14 days of self-isolation at his shrine when he was identified as one of the people who had come into contact with an infected person.
After a few days of the self-isolation, he started showing symptoms of the virus to which a test was carried on him which came out positive.
According to the fetish priest, he does not know of anybody who has contracted the virus. But, he was quick to add that he might have been infected by one white man whom he came into contact with at a supermarket in Lagos where he needed to buy hand sanitizers for use at his shrine. According to him, there was one white man close to him who was continually shivering, sneezing and coughing. He therefore strongly feels that is where he might have gotten infected.
“I don’t want to die. Please do whatever you can to save me. I went to buy sanitizers for use at my shrine and see what has happened. Is it that I disobeyed the gods for getting myself hand sanitizers? ‘Amadioha’ will deal with this ‘onyibo’ for being the cause of this,” he said as he cried uncontrollably and rolled himself on the ground.
