The Lady That Started Salt & Water Ebola Cure Apologizes to Nigerians (Must read)


Really, I can't explain if this apology purported to be coming from the lady that started the whole story of ‘Salt and Water Ebola Cure’ is even really or not. This is because people are becoming too desperate to seek out the cure or prevention for Ebola Virus Disease, as a result all forms of messages are passed around. People woke up this morning to be greeted with the news of taking their baths with hot salt water. Before one could blink an eye, the news went like a fire, through phone calls, test messages, facebook messages, BBM and others. However, the Vice President of Nigeria Medical Association, Dr. Titus Ibekwe diffused the rumor by sending a message debunking the claims, he stated: “Please stop spreading wrong information. Bathing or drinking warm water and salt DOESN’T prevent or cure Ebola.” Read the lady the apology of the lady, who identified herself as Adesewa below:
"I Started The Saltwater Ebola Cure Rumor I Truely Am Sorry – by DRealGeesam1
My confession and apology
Dear all who have heard of the Ebola Prevention “News”, My name is Adesewa, I am coming out clean because what started has a joke has escalated into the unprecedented.

How it started

Yesterday i was with friend in her hostel, we were talking about this Ebola out break, when one of my friends, Funke (she introduced me to nairaland) brought the idea of Us playing a prank on our friends. The first suggestion was to tell people that aloe very could cure Ebola, but we thought it would sound too ridiculous so we forgot about it.
Later that even an idea came to me (i now regret that i did it).
I decided to send a BBM broadcast message to my friends, telling them that the Ministry of Health has asked everyone to bathe with salt and warm water and drink some of it.
I sent the message 7:08pm yesterday
Later this midnight i started getting calls and messages that i should drink salt water and bath with it.
All efforts to tell people that i was the one who started the joke failed. Only my friends who i mentioned earlier believed me. Even my mum could me this morning, i did not know what to tell her.
I am using this medium to beg you all to warn and tell everyone, before they drink salt and damage their health.
Please dont be hash on me. I know this has gone out of hand. I never knew it will be this serious. Some have even added to the original message i sent…." she stated. 

God help Nigerians!!!
