My sister will tell you she had a problem, that business was not moving for her.
But my dear, who is business moving for in Nigeria? If you are not the governor or related to people in power in Abuja, can you truly say things are moving well for you?
Look at our economy with all the belt-tightening, people are just managing everywhere.
I will tell you the truth though, my sister’s son was always going to be the death of her. This is a boy she failed to correct; a boy she raised to feel entitled, that is why she can go ahead to follow his lead, instead of the other way round; she followed the lead of agreeing to eat sacrifice prepared by one fake pastor and it turned out to be the body of an innocent girl!
The story is everywhere but let me start from the beginning.
When my sister began to have problems with her business of buying and selling; I told her that her problem was not unique but instead of listening and adjusting, she was busy looking for signs and prophecies and charlatans and that was how she finally landed on one fake pastor; a pastor who mixes things and gives people to eat and drink with the promise of a better life; I do not subscribe to going to consult with anybody beyond praying to God by myself; I advised her not to go looking for something that does not exist but she insisted on going to meet pastor Philip, a man we all know is not a true pastor, a man we all know mixes his Christianity with something else. What i mean is that the pastor is not pure, he is not a real man of God.
My sister later told me the pastor prayed for her and said he could help her solve her problem. He asked her to buy certain things or pay cash instead for the things he would use to prepare money-making charms for her.
Tell me, is my sister a child? If someone who professes to know God tells you to bring unholy things for ritual, shouldn’t you realise this person is fake and diabolical?
Now she’s claiming innocence but she went to look for the money and guess how much she gathered to give the pastor, just guess?
From someone who claimed she was looking for money for business.
Isn’t it madness? I mean, if you can raise that amount of money to give a pastor to do juju to help you make money, why do you still need a pastor for anything?
Well, that’s what she believed in, I know if I can raise that amount of money, I would never give it to any pastor to pray or do anything for me, it means I can make money for myself! So you can imagine the kind of fake pastor this so-called Philip is.
That is the same kind of pastor who would tell that stupid son of my sister to go bring someone to use for sacrifice so that the person’s body parts can be used for money ritual. I know I told my sister this son of hers was going to get her into trouble as a yahoo yahoo boy at the rate at which he was going. All he ever spoke about was how he was going to blow and hammer; tell me, how would someone doing absolutely nothing you can point to as being legitimate, suddenly have money?
So, the pastor lured him into tricking someone over to be murdered for money ritual. The unfortunate girl, I hear was lured from the internet.
That’s the thing with children these days, I wish the girl informed her family about the so called boy she was going to visit out of town, I am sure her parents would have advised differently but she told them she was going back to school to study.
I am really sad about how things turned out for her.
As for my sister, I hope she gets out of this trouble that the pastor and her son have dragged her into; to eat another man’s child breasts and intestines just to make money? Even when you have that money, will you truly enjoy it? Won’t it be money that will give you constant nightmares?
I would rather sleep peacefully with little than have plenty with no sleep.
