An Indian holy man who claimed he could perform COVID-19 exorcisms by kissing people’s hands, has died from the disease after infecting 20 of his followers during the spiritual practice.

According to Times of India, the tantric man, from Ratlam in Madhya Pradesh, would kiss the hands of his devotees and then tell them it would make their problems go away.  He also claimed that his ‘kiss-cure’ worked on Coronavirus patients even after health authorities warned that the virus can spread through contagious droplets from the mouth or nose.

 

Health department officials said the man contracted coronavirus himself, testing positive for the killer disease on June 3 and dying just a day later.

When officials began contact tracing, they took 40 swab samples to identify further cases. Surprisingly, twenty of the swabs returned a positive result, including from seven members of the man’s family.

Swab collector Ruchika Chouhan identified 29 more people involved in similar coronavirus ‘exorcisms’ and has since put them in quarantine.

India has so far recorded 298,283 known cases of Coronavirus and 8,498 deaths.

All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader, Bola Tinubu, has paid a solidarity visit to the governor of Lagos state, Babjide Sanwo-Olu, ending the speculation that he travelled out of the country.

Tinubu’s visit to Sanwo-Olu came on Saturday, October 24, at the Marina State House amid a deluge of tragedies occasioned by wanton of destruction in the state by hoodlums. Addressing journalists, the APC leader expressed displeasure with how EndSARS protest transcended into violence that led to the vandalisation of the government properties and private facilities. Clearing the air on the Lekki shooting, Tinubu said his visit to the governor was to ask him if he ordered the operatives of the Nigerian Army to unleash terror on peaceful protest. The APC national leader also debunked the circulation that he was in France during the bedlam, saying it was fake news. “I didn’t go nowhere; I’m a Lagosian and I still hold the title of Asiwaju of Lagos and I am still a Jagaban.

“Whatever they think. Fake news is all over the place. They say Seyi my son was kidnapped and was chased but look at him. I didn’t pay a penny to bring him here.” Earlier, Tinubu denied having a hand in the killing of some EndSARS protesters at Lekki tollgate, saying he would never be part of any carnage. In a related development, Governor Sanwo-Olu has lifted the lids on the alleged removal of the CCTV camera prior to the toll gate incident. Speaking on Arise TV on Thursday, October 22, the Lagos state governor stated that “nobody ordered” the removal of the camera and turning off the light contrary to the circulation on the social media.

Sanwo-Olu said there was the security of LCC on the ground and added that what looked like a camera are “necessary installation” removed due to 24-hour curfew imposed on the state over repeated attacks of hoodlums.
