Professor Maduike Ezeibe of Michael Okpara University of Agriculture Umudike (MOUAU), Abia State, claims to have produced a drug that cures HIV/AIDS in two months.
Ezeibe is quoted by a Nigerian website, Nigeriacamera.net, saying his drug (Antivirt) is “real and effective”.
Ezeibe says after 19 years of hard work, he was able to discover the therapy.
He told Southern City News that his research into the therapy known as Antivirt (Anti-Viral Therapy), started in 1994 when he took the challenge to be part of the global solution to the HIV/AIDS.
He used two minerals; aluminum silicate (kaolin) and magnesium silicate, used in the production of the therapy to make the drug.
The said minerals are found in Umuahia and parts of Abia State in Nigeria.
Ezeibe says his drug is not only cheap and more “affordable than the old anti-retroviral therapy” but also cures the virus in two to three months.
The professor is confident his experiment can be verified in any part of the world.
Ezeibe said his work had been published by the American-based medical journal known as The Health and in the British Journal of Medicine & Medical Research.
“I decided to publish his research work on the therapy so as to prove anyone who would doubt that a black man could develop HIV/AIDS cure, wrong,” he clarifies.
Ezeibe, a Prof of Veterinary Medicine, obtained his first degree in same discipline at the University of Nigeria Nsukka in 1986, Masters in Ruminant Medicine, and doctorate degree in Canine Medicine all in UNN, said he moved to MOUAU on leave of absence.
