S/Court Judgement: Mysterious Owl Attacks Gov Ortom Inside Church

Published

on

Shortly after the Supreme Court of Nigeria affirmed the election of Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, he was unexpectedly attacked at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Makurdi, by a mysterious owl.

According to Daily Post, Ortom was in the church for a special thanksgiving service, when the strange bird attacked.

An eyewitness, Prince Tordue Abe, narrated how the bird, on Tuesday night, found its way into the Church, the exact time the Governor was giving his testimonies and went straight to the altar where Ortom was kneeling down for his testimonies.

But for the prompt efforts of some youths, the night bird, which is superstitiously believed to be a witchcraft bird, would have landed on the Governor’s head.

“It happened few minutes ago while the Governor was on his kneels praying at the Redeemed Christian Church Makurdi.

“An Owl flew in and headed right towards the direction of the Governor. On sighting the Governor the owl bowed before the Governor and together we rushed and killed it.

“Whatever it was they planned against the Governor, the Holy Spirit brought it to a halt.

“Indeed Governor Ortom is not just a man of God but a powerful man of God,” Abe said.

The apex court had on Tuesday delivered judgement in an appeal brought before it by Barr. Emmanuel Jime of the All Progressive Congress (APC), challenging the decision of the Court of Appeal to have upheld the election of Ortom, who contested under the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in the March 9, 2019 guber election in Benue.

In a 30-second judgement delivered by Justice Sylvester Ngwuata, the Supreme Court reaffirmed the victory of Governor Ortom, saying, “The judgement of the Tribunal and Court of Appeal need not to be disturbed”.

    “I Am A Born Again Christian” ― Ortom
    Hello Mr Samuel Ortom,
    Yes you are right. You are Christian. Which brand of Christian are you?
    There are three brands: Careless Christians, Defiant Christians and Dedicated and Committed Christians.
    Another question: Do you know ten commandments of God Almighty or you go to Church on Sunday?
    Looking at your Church, the Scripture and word of Almighty God declares that you are not BORN AGAIN. You do not know the true God. If you you do not keep God’s ten commandments, then you have shown that God would not dictate for you.
    It is good that the mystery Owl did not hurt you, that does not mean you are a strong man of God. It happens due to the mercy of God which even the devil enjoys while waiting for his execution day.
    Thanks
