@xby229 no you cannot. You will have to disassemble it. Treat it just like you would treat any other liquid immersed phone. In general the first step is to stop continuing to try to charge, sync or otherwise use your phone. This potentially can make a bad situation worse.

After that you will have to disassemble your phone. Use this teardown Huawei P8 Lite Teardown to help you with that. Take a careful and close look at all components and connectors. Truly assess the damage. Look for major corrosion, evaluate the pins in the connectors etc,. Take a look at all connectors as well as cable ends. You must remove all the EMI shields to properly clean this board. Once you got the gross contamination cleaned, use 90%+ isopropyl alcohol and clean your parts some more since you are dealing with oil, it will take quite a bit to clean. For a proper cleaning, use this guide. It was written for a Apple iPhone 3G but it is still pertinent to your phone as well. I can not stress the importance of a good cleaning enough, so do it over and over while replacing the alcohol after each cleaning. Do not use compressed air for the cleaning since that can drive liquid as well as corrosion particles into areas that will cause trouble later on. Do not use drinking water, if you need to use water, use sterile water. Also, you do not need to leave it to dry for a day. Isopropyl alcohol in the higher concentration will evaporate quickly and dissipate the water. The importance here is the cleaning. The best way would of course be to get it professionally cleaned with an ultrasonic cleaner. Do not forget to replace the battery. This is a must and not an option. It will fail if you do not take care of it now. Then reassemble your phone and evaluate for any damage.

You don’t need to open it or anything

I dropped my phone today in cooking oil and the speakers had a terrible voice. So what I did is I tried to remove oil using vinegar and perfume but instead it made the iPhone have no sound. So there was a piece of rice stuck from my attempt to sock it in rice so I kept on hitting the phone with my hand to get it out and magically the speakers became way way better than before and the microphone was working!
