Stories we hear!
Around 9am today, a certain young woman allegedly
confessed to being a witch, after being rescued from a gutter she was trapped in
around Abalti Barracks, Ojuelegba in Surulere, Lagos.
According to reports,
a passerby had noticed someone stretching out her hand from a very
small hole in a 6ft deep gutter just in front of the Army Barracks
and calling out for help. The passerby quickly ran into the Army
barracks to get help.
Within minutes, a crowd gathered with people saying all sort of things
about the lady inside the gutter and how she got trapped in it.
Some said she’s a witch, that she went for her meeting transformed as a bird. Only to end up in the covered gutter after she
fell uncontrollably as a bird from the sky. That it was inside the
drainage she now transformed back into her human form. Some others said
she was on her way from Oshogbo and got sucked in the gutter, and so on.
When the woman was asked questions like ‘What are you doing inside the
gutter?’ she replied, weeping ”Please I need water, help me”.
A senior officer of the Nigerian Army reportedly asked the soldiers to
get her out, a welder around the environment was called in and she was
finally brought out by a good Samaritan who entered the gutter to help
She was brought out naked, covered up and then she said:
My name is Amudat Jimoh, It was God that sent me here, He (GOD) said I
should confess my sins so that I don’t die, please I need water to
drink, help me, I don’t know how I found myself here, please help me..
A Lagos State ambulance arrived and she was taken to away for proper medical attention.
