Last week in the Mawuko area of Odeda local government area, in Ogun State, another astonishing occurrence was recorded, when a man believed to have died thirty seven years ago was sighted.
Unsurprisingly. the sighting of the man, late Sheikh Ibraheem Nyaas, at a newly constructed building in Mawuko has turned the area into a tourist attraction, as visitors within and outside the state have been flocking in to see for themselves.
Leadership newspaper which carried the report said, “The ghost of Sheikh Ibraheem who had died for almost 37 years ago started appearing on the walls of a building belonging to one Saubana Fadeyi.”
Fadeyi, who only moved into the yet to be completed two bedroom flat a day to the Eid el Fitri celebration, confirmed that he started noticing a very faint brightness on the wall of his sitting room and the figure that showed on that wall was a replica of the portrait of Sheikh Nyass that he engraved at the entrance of the building.
“My wife first noticed it and she rushed out to inform me, when I also saw it, I was greatly terrified, wondering how such thing could have happened”.
“My thought was that the ghost would eventually disappeared but on the second day, it brightened more and started showing on all sides of the building which made me ran to a pastor of a church near my house for assistance”.
Collaborating her husband;s story, Maryam Fadeyi said that when she saw that the happening was a strange thing, “I told my husband to inform those that knows better than us, it was then we called on an Imam at a nearby mosque after the Pastor that we invited had advised that we seek for help from Muslim clerics to solve the misery”.
Fadeyi said that he immediately invited some Muslim clerics in the area to come and behold the strange happenings in his house. He said, “The shout of “Allahu Akbar” (God is Great) rented the air as hundreds of people trooped in to behold what happened”.
