King David had packed dozens of the cream in a blue-black vehicle branded with a coronavirus preventive cream sticker.

Witnesses and buyers revealed that they were confused after King David told them it could cure the deadly novel coronavirus.

“We were excited when he told us the cream, being sold for GH¢ 5.00, could cure the disease just by applying on your body after eating, so many of us rushed for it,” one said.

They said upon opening the container after purchase, they realized it was mere Shea butter.
