Prof. Isaiah Ibeh, Head of the Department of Microbiology and Dean School of Basic Medical Sciences of the University of Benin, has eaten the humble pie and apologised over his recent claims that he found a possible cure for HIV/AIDS.
In a five-paragraph statement made available to members of the press in Benin City, Prof. Ibeh expressed regrets over the publication of his acclaimed discovery of a drug (DeconcontionX-Liquid or Bioclean 11) that could cure
HIV/AIDS, saying that the publication was a misinterpretation.
“The true position is that some observations of our Research are preliminary and the research is still ongoing.
“I am very sorry for the embarrassment this has caused the University of Benin and Professional Colleagues, realizing that there are procedures of reporting such Scientific result,” he said.
