Barely a week after a child was reportedly born with Islamic rosary, (Tesbaha) in Sagamu, Ogun State, another amazing event was recorded in the ancient town of Abeokuta, as a man that was believed to have died about four decades ago was sighted at Mawuko area of Odeda local government, Ogun State.
The appearance of late Sheikh Ibraheem Nyaas at a newly constructed building in the area has continued to attract visitors both within and outside the State since the unusual event occurred few days ago.
Investigation by Leadership Sunday confirmed that last week Friday, 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.
Expectedly, the strange happening has turned the sleepy Mawuko village into a Mecca of sorts as people thronged the area to see another oddity and seek the face of Allah.
The owner of the building who moved into the yet to be completed two bedroom flat a day to the eid el fitri celebration while speaking with LEADERSHIP SUNDAY 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.
His words: “My wife first noticed it and she rushed out to inform me, when I also saw it, I was greatly terified, wondering how such thing could have happened".
“My thought was that the ghost would eventually disappeaed but on the second day, it brightenes 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 the husband, Mrs 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 adviced 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"
Fadeyi said, "the shout of “Allahu Akbar” (God is Great) rented the air as hundreds of people trooped in to behold what happened".
