But Imasogie also stated that he left the Orthodox church for the renowned Osokpikan Organisation which he claimed researches on traditional herbal medicine, after he survived the alleged plot by a senior Pastor of the church to kill him for an offence that he did not commit decades ago.

Asked why he did not oppose his 15th and 24th sons from becoming church pastors, Imasogie, said he doesn’t want any of his Children into to blame him on the day of judgement of God.

“We have so many religions and the Benin doctrine.

“I have also studied other religions. Religion is free. I didn’t oppose them when they declared their intentions to become Priests.

“Some religious organizations believe in the existence of heaven and others do not.

“I did not oppose my Children so that there will not blame me for denying them heaven.

“I also believe in reincarnation. Two of my Children are products of that”.

“One of his senior teachers who preach sermons in Churches, approached the Owegbe to kill me for an offence I did not commit. The man is still alive and had apologised to my family and I have forgiven him.

“The lesson I learnt from it is that in anything that you think is evil, there can be good. If the Owegbe society some Christians say are evil could protect me at that time and my brother who says that he is a Christian wants me dead, it is better to join the Owegbe people and enjoy their benefits.

“It is wrong to relate Owegbe or Osokpikan with secret cults. Osokpikan is a registered organisation and our mandate is to research and develop herbs for different ailments.

“We do not serve any strine in Owegbe. There is no society that is created bad; it is the people in it that makes it either good or bad.
That is why I preach to my followers to do good things. So that people will join us because of your good work.

“Our worship Centre is called “Osokpikan church”. We have branches all over Nigeria. But we do not use the Bible”, he said.

Speaking on the efficacy of herbal medicine as a curative for the novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, the Octogenarian, said that he believes in the existence of disease, but he hates the business aspect of it particularly on the part of some Government and unnamed individuals and Organizations who have suddenly turned themselves into merchandize by using the slogan of the deadly virus.

“I believe in the existence of Covid-19. But If I air my view about Covid-19, those benefiting especially the Government may think that I am killing their business. And among the actors is the Government.

“We have had many stories where people die and they will be begging their families to admit that Covid-19 was the cause of death. Some had cried out too.

“Sometimes when you go to hospital and you have malaria, they will name it Covid-19. I am not saying that such virus doesn’t exist because it has been scientifically proven that the thing started from China. And I cannot disbelief it.

But I have the impression that heat is one of the factors that you can use to subdue it. The alcohol based hand sanitizer is a product of heat”, according to him.
