EBOLA CONFESSION: I Started The Saltwater Ebola Cure Rumor I Truly Am Sorry

When I logged into my facebook account this morning the first thing I saw was a status advising people to bath with salt and hot water. It was all over facebook, BBM and twitter, people were calling their friends and family. Asked for the source of the information Some went as far as saying the message came from Rev. Fr. Mbaka, while others attributed it to Prophet TB Joshua.
Well the truth is finally out. It was all a joke. Read the confession below:

My confession and apology to everyone 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 brought the idea of Us playing a prank on our friends. The first suggestion was to tell people that aloe vera could cure Ebola, but we thought it would
sound too ridiculous so we forgot about it.

Later that evening an idea came to me (i now regret that i did it). 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 sent.

Keep the conversation going, please drop a comment.
