He was overpowered and detained for five days by mad man he wanted to cure

Chief Dr Adebayo Elekeru, who specializes in curing madness and leprosy, has recounted how he was over powered by one of his lunatic patients in the bush and tied to a stake for five days.
Chief Elekeru, who said he had cured over 2,000 mad men and women and over 500 leprosy patients free of charge, explained many of his encounters with insane people.

How he started the job
I inherited the job from my late father, Chief Joseph Elekeru, who died 25 years ago. Immediately my father passed on, I took over his business because he had exposed me to all the medicines and methods he used in curing both madness and leprosy. So, when he died I didnít find it difficult to start where he stopped.

Fee
My father didnít collect money during and after the curing of patients. I donít charge money because I was made to realize that whoever cured madness and leprosy and charges, at least one or two of that native doctorís children would be inflicted with madness which will be incurable for life.
I donít charge money and I donít collect any money for any materials.

What I do is that if I need to buy any material to prepare the medicine for patients, I will write the materials or items for his or her family or relatives to buy.

For madness, I consult the oracle first to know the degree of the madness and ask the oracle the kind of sacrifice I should prepare for it. Thereafter, I will prepare the medicine for the lunatic and within three weeks the patient will be okay no matter how difficult the madness. Please, go and do your independent investigation to ascertain what Iím saying. For leprosy, I donít camp them, I always ask them to come for the medicine for certain period of one year. Thereafter, they will be okay.

I have cured over 2,000 mad people. Once I cured them, it is once and for all, nobody had ever come to me to complain that his relationís illness relapses.

Most difficult days
That was the day a lunatic I was treating wanted to kill me. It was the third day I admitted the patient and I took him to the bush to extract some leaves for his treatment. As I was busy extracting the herbs, the young lunatic overpowered me and tied me to a tree. He started hitting me. I shouted for help, but there was nobody to help. I was there for five days because it was a forest and the lunatic was there with me too. At home, they thought I had travelled to another village in Igbatoro. They did not bother to look for me. On the fifth day, the lunatic just woke up and set me free. I fell down, like dried wood because I did not have energy.

I managed to stand up after an hour and went home. When I narrated my ordeals to the family, they advised me to stop the treatment of the patient. I eventually cured his madness. He is within Akure city doing fine today. If not because of the intervention of God, the patient could have killed me.

Retirement:
There is no retirement. My daddy did not retire. He died serving humanity. I wonít retire too. I would die in active service to humanity. I will be curing madness till my last day on earth

This is a great piece of history, which is dear to our hearts as people and very much appreciated.

Many thanks to the people who worked hard in the past and those who are still making efforts to keep the institution.

The labour is obviouly worth it. We are proud of you all.

A lot still to be done, with the motivation of the champions of this course, others will follow as well to maintain the institution

May God continue to keep the edifice for development of future generations to the glory of God and the benefits of our fatherland.
