The Metropolitan Archbishop of Accra, Most Reverend Charles Palmer Buckle, has urged the international community not to ignore reports that Ebola was created in some laboratories to kill Africans.
Speaking to Accra-based Starr FM, Most Reverend Palmer Buckle said, â€œâ€œSome of us are very sad to hear that, it seems this Ebola virus run out of a laboratory that was doing what it shouldnâ€™t be doing in Sierra Leone.
â€œWe hope and pray that the world would talk about it, if it is true that they did some experimentation with human beings without authorization, so that whoever it was, whatever country was involved in something like that could be brought to book because it should not be allowed to happen.â€
There have been widespread allegations in the international media to the effect that Ebola is a man-made invention aimed at depopulation is some parts of the world.
The Leader of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan, recently claimed, for instance, that Ebola was designed by white scientists to specifically wipe off blacks.
The 81-year-old civil rights made this known in his organisationâ€™s newspaper, â€˜The Final Callâ€™, insisting that the disease is man-made and cooked up in a laboratory as a means of population control.
Palmer Buckle however said that the world must look to God to help the sub-region overcome this pandemic.
â€œIf the Lord our God would have the Church become a channel for – call it this way – causing infection it would be quite a very sad story, so we are praying to God to help this country, to help the sub-region to lift this scourge of this Ebola from all of usâ€.
