Ooni Of Ife Arrives Lagos With Locally Made Fumigators To Curb Spread Of The Coronavirus..

Arole Oodua & Ooni of Ife, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, the Ooni of Ife was on Tuesday at the Lagos State government house, Marina to donate two of his invented locally made Modular motorized Fumigation Equipments designed to curb and totally eradicate the ravaging deadly pandemic globally known as Covid '19.

Received by Lagos state governor, Mr Babajide Sanwoolu in company of his deputy, Mr Obafemi Hamzat, Chief of Staff, Tayo Ayinde, SSG, Folasade Jaji, Commissioner for Health, Prof Akin Abayomi and other govt functionaries, The Ooni said he decided to support Lagos because the state is the epicenter of the pandemic in Nigeria, saying Governor Sanwo-Olu must be praised for his regular updates to the people of Lagos and Nigeria on the daily efforts of his government to contain Covid-19.

The Ooni also urged other Nigerians to support the government at all levels in the fight against COVID-19. Saying Nigerians must look beyond the palliatives by coming up with more local solutions to save lives during and after the COVID-19, just the way Volkswagen beetle was manufactured during 2nd world wars in the 1940s.

"Lagos is the epicenter of this pandemic, that is why we must support this government by all means. We also must praise this government of Sanwoolu for the way they regularly update Nigerians on their steps to contain the virus.

"Our people should look inward for solutions that are social and local as the present situation calls for home-grown interventions to support our doctors and other frontline warriors." Ooni said.

The monarch who doubles as Yoruba Supreme Head and Co-Chairman of National Council of Traditional Rulers of Nigeria(NCTRN) said the fumigators, which were locally fabricated right inside his Ile Oodua palace at Ile-Ife are environmentally-friendly. He stated that the equipment converts the liquid sanitizer to fog, travels faster and stays longer to fight Corona and any other virus in the community.

Governor Sanwoolu eulogized Ooni Ogunwusi as a caring father not only to the Yoruba race but to the entire country.
The governor also expressed his joy that the Ooni found it expedient to visit Lagos State at this critical stage knowing fully well that the state, being the most populated in Nigeria records the highest number of cases almost on daily basis since the sudden eruption of the pandemic.

Sanwoolu however thanked the African foremost monarch for his prompt response towards supporting the efforts of the Lagos State government in ensuring the stoppage of spread of the virus.

Promising the Ooni that his government will make good use of the equipments, Sanwoolu noted that Oba Ogunwusi has equally helped government in educating the rural people not only on the presence of the pandemic as a reality and not a myth but also by encouraging them to provide local answer to the scourge.

"Thank you your majesty for using your office and institution as a strong enabler to be able to communicate and pass on this strong message to our citizens. I want to commend you, for using your office as an institution to let our people know that what we are going through is real, it is not something that anybody has conjured, but it is something we can come together and solve collectively.

"We are all your subjects and It is good that you are leading this conversation today. You are the first that would able to tell our people that COVID19 is real, you have shown we can also look inward and take up a local solution, and you have taken it upon yourself to not just sit back and criticize, but to give back and encourage our local industry and economy, to be very creative and see what kind of local solutions you can bring about." Sanwoolu said.

The fumigation equipments the Ooni donated to Lagos State is a hi-tech equipment of modular fumigators coupled with a large drone fumigation services by FTS Drones Ltd connected to the equipment to release the fumigation into the air with no side effect on the human health.

It is expected that as soon as the Lagos State government commence the fumigation using the motorized modular machines, the apprehension and fear by Lagosians of contracting the virus would be brought to the nearest minimum as the disease will hopefully be contained.


  1. At least someone is thinking.

  2. Exactly we need to look inward even for cure. Been asking if it's possible we don't have herbs that can cure or eradicate this thing or we are not just trying at allšŸ¤¦‍♀️

    1. My dear we have herbs.Even in Madagascar the use of herbs,social distancing and wearing of face mask has helped in containing the spread of virus.

  3. There must be herbs dat Can cure this virus...but our eyes hasn't open yet...

  4. Kudus to Ooni of ife

  5. Well-done Sir, this are the kind of require efforts from the able individual or organization instead of giving billions of Naira that will be eating by goat to government. You have actually lead by example, hope others will follow.

  6. I strongly believe nature has a cure for this virus holding the world hostage. Our herbs are good but downgraded by us. We are all waiting for lab tested vaccines containing tge virus to save us when we have herbs. Time to look inwards.

  7. Thank, you are a good father affecting his generation

  8. Thank you so much for this innovation Oni of ife, just like the case of herbal cure in madagascar.we pray to God to help us too in Nigeria, God bless you more

  9. God bless the arole oodua, at least effort by him. i strongly believ that there ar herbs that can cure this virus, but yet to be known. I pray that what oonirisa has brought will work. others in d field of herbal medicine should take steps of efforts. long liv d king, long liv lagos state, long liv south west, long liv nigeria, africa, and d world at large.God will interven and get rid of this virus now. ko ni kan wa tomotomo,ase!

  10. Honestly we must look inward just the oba rightly said. Nigeria should stop following America and Europe, let's develope local harbs that can end this pandemic.

  11. Just wondering if the governor prostrated to the oni of Ife. Please who's superior?

  12. Kudos to ojaja 11 Oba ooni ife more knowledge to you sir

  13. Kabiesi o,adimula gbogbo Yoruba,God bless you richly for this gestures.Long life initial.

  14. Enter your comment...great work. Arole Oodua

  15. God bless you sir the Arole Oodua of the source, Kade pelori kibata Pelese Oba wa

  16. Good work sir. You're leading by example

  17. Kudos to Ooni of ife, you hv done a great job sir.God will continue to give u more wisdom, dis is what we need not by wasting money for what will not yield positive result

  18. Fumigation on a regular basis is why we do not have malaria here at all. It’s however a simplistic solution commendable no doubt but not proven to help the spread of the virus. If a street is fumigated and you are COVID+ and sneeze 5 hours afterwards, anyone touching the surface you sneeze on will still catch it. We want this to end but we want a real end and no second wave. Good job though, the Owanbes were drying up and man must survive
