The Governor of Benue State, Ortom recently survived an attack by a mysterious owl, at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Makurdi.
According to the report, this is happening after the Supreme Court of Nigeria affirmed Ortom’s election as Governor of Benue State.
The Owl reportedly flew in and attacked him while he was having a special thanksgiving service to celebrate the court’s verdict.
“As soon as he mounted up the altar to give his testimony, an owl went straight to the altar where Ortom was kneeling down…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.” reports claim.
An eyewitness, Prince Tordue Abe, narrated the event on Facebook thus:
“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.
