|Has Ebonyi Student Lied About Fasting For 41 Days? What Doctors Say by Nigeria2day(m): 6:10pm On Sep 08, 2019|
On the 6th of September 2019, a story went viral on Facebook of a young man, Ikechukwu Oke, who had been hospitalised after 41-day fasting and prayer without food and water.
This kind of fast is popularly known as dry fasting.
The story had stirred the pot in Nigeria. While some prayed for the young man’s quick recovery, others argued that even though the veracity of the story could not be doubted, it is not possible that a human being can outdo Jesus Christ in food fasting.
Meanwhile, some medical doctors who spoke to a Nigeria Today correspondent have also expressed concern over the validity of the claim.
They said that while it is possible that a human being can survive for 41 days without food or supplement, it is impossible to survive more than seven days without water.
According to Dr Alex Oshim, a medical doctor at MedPlus Hospital, Ajah Lagos state, no human being can survive without water for 41 days.
He said, “I do not believe that a human being can survive 41 days without water. It is not medically possible, and it has never happened before.”
