The story below was carried by one of our national dailies (The Tribune). Its so stunning, almost unbelievable. But as na newspaper report am, e suppose be true abi?
PEOPLE living at Oke-Ado area of Ibadan, Oyo State, as well as shopowners and automobile dealers along Molete road in the town, onThursday, watched a drama involving a pastor and a mad man.
The pastor, whose name is Timothy, according to an eyewitness, got toOsosami junctions of Oke-Ado around 5.20 p.m and went to meet thementally-deranged man, popularly known as Tunde, who was sitting infront of a building in the area.
According to Semiu, a shop owner around the spot of the incident, thepastor began to read the Bible on sighting the mad man, while he movedcloser to him and laid the hand on his head.
"At a point, there was a hot argument between the duo, which made thepastor to raise his voice as he was offering a deliverance prayer forTunde, the mad man. The hot prayer lasted for over 15 minutes beforeanother strange drama began," Semiu told the Nigerian Tribune.
Speaking further, another witness, an okada rider, said at a point, themad man removed the pastor's hand from his head, adding that "suddenly,a strange spirit got hold of the pastor and he began to remove hiscloth. He was naked and laid flat on the ground, speaking a strangelanguage, with foam oozing out of his mouth."
The mad man, it was gathered, initially left him in this position andsat at some distance away from the pastor, before the duo later satcloser to each other, while onlookers watched the strange drama.
The pastor remained in state of insanity until the Nigerian Tribune leftthe scene of the incident.
Wonders shall never cease. What was a mad man and a pastor arguing about, biko nu? Could the mad man have shared the spirit inside of him with the pastor?
Na real wa!
