In the video posted by the National daily on its official twitter page, the Monarch was seen pledging to help anyone who would pull of the “incredible feat” with where they can acquire such powers.

Even though he was saying it as a mockery to those who claim such powers exist, some commentators misunderstood him to have been supporting looting.

Consequently mixed reactions have trailed the video – while some expressed disappoint at the King for taking such a stand, others who claim to have seen the full interview simply tried to put the record straight.

One twitter user,@noafasina wrote,  “He wasn’t encouraging anything. He was making fun of those who claims they have mystical powers to proof it by going to the reserves for money!”

Another one was quick to call on the attention of the country’s anti graft agency, the EFCC.

“@officialEFCC una don sleep? Anyway, una go surely wake up see this one”- tweeted @Okechukwu_Onoh
