By Another Nairalander I Started The Saltwater Ebola Cure Rumor I am Truely AmSorry– by DRealGeesam1
My confession and apology Dear nairalanders and
everyone who have heard of the ebola Prevention
“News”, My name isAdesewa, 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
called 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
