A Boko Haram member walks into a church, confesses to the congregation that he was planning a bomb attack and converts to Christianity.
Sounds like the stuff of fiction, right?
Believe it or not (and some don’t believe it…), this actually happened at the Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN).
In this viral clip that has been watched more than 800,000 times, the Nigerian pastor and televangelist, T.B. Joshua, takes the confession of a Boko Haram member.
The Boko Haram Member, Mustapha Umar of Yula (Adamawa State) begins my telling T.B. Joshua how he had arrived in Lagos in order to bomb SCOAN.
But then he tells the story of how he happened to watch television before committing the dastardly act:
“We were watching the woman’s television. It was Emmanual TV. I saw you particularly. You were preaching to people at that time. By the time you prayed and stretched your hand towards the screen. It was like you were dealing with us as if you laid your hands on our faces”
T.B. Joshua then asks the Boko Haram member why he arrived to SCOAN and he says as follows:
“Why I am here? Since that day, I wanted to go home but couldn’t. Anytime I lie down I would see you. It is disturbing me too much. You are disturbing me. I don’t know what I did to you”
Then the fireworks really begin (tip: if you’re lacking in patience, go to the 10:00 minute mark where the deliverance from evil begins).
Many people commenting on the clip were highly skeptical. But don’t forget that T.B. Joshua has been credited with delivering other famous individuals – for example, Nollywood actor, Jim Lyke and the wife of Ghanaian goalkeeper, Richard Kingson.
