Bird Allegedly Turns into Lagos Woman



Lagos woman turns into bird Bella Naija

No, you’re not seeing things. You read the headline correctly! Its not a promo for a Nollywood movie. This is reportedly a true-life story.

Residents of the Ajegunle area in Lagos say a bird transformed into an old woman who confessed to being a witch, Vanguard reports.

Speaking in Yoruba language, the woman told a startled crowd that she was on her way back to Ibadan, Oyo State as a bird when she lost her way. She also revealed that her magical powers had been weakened because it was dawn.

According to eyewitnesses, at about 7 a.m. yesterday, three black birds were seen flying side by side along Ojo road. Suddenly, one of the birds landed on a moving pick‑up van owned by Eko Electricity Distribution Company.

An eye witness, Okafor, gave the following account:

“Everyone ran away at first but we later gathered round the woman only to discover that she had a bruise on her forehead with which she landed.

When we asked her what her mission was, she said three of them were sent to Lagos from their coven in Ibadan but that on their way back, they missed their way.

She said they started hovering in the area until it was morning, adding that she fell because she was tired.

She also told us that she initially did not want to embark on the journey and that she used to restrict her witchcraft activities to Ibadan because of her age.

She was thereafter taken to the Baale of Ajeromi, where she confessed to have killed her husband through witchcraft.”

Police authorities took the woman into custody to prevent her from being a victim of “jungle justice.” Because witchcraft is not a crime, police say she will be released shortly.

      The Police is right, one cannot be arrested for killing with witchcraft. How do they prove that in a court of law. Except she killed him physically, the police can’t arrest people for crimes allegedly committed in the spirit.

    Elderly lady has head injury, confused, in any decent country will be rushed straight to hospital for emergency CT scan to rule out a bleed as cause of her symptoms. In impoverished Nigeria, we call her a witch and lock her in prison for her own safety…..

      stop fooling yourself….witchcraft does exist all over the world but this kind is practiced more in black Africa…there were eyewitnesses to the whole thing before she confessed so this is not about naija nothing…….some of us have lived abroad for years but i have lived more than 5 decades to know that raw witchcraft still happens here….

      see this one. witchcraft exists all over the world. forget all this oyinbo you are speaking. there are witches in america, england, russia, china, brazil,etc. it’s just that african countries and some other countries have decided to still keep their old religion and beliefs while developed countries deny the existence of such forces. now, they say there’s no God, and everyone is following the same people who told us there is God and brought various religions to the world.

    I don’t’d think with enough ‘magical’ know-how to turn into a bird, they’d at least have decent witch sat-nav…we mere humans have already got that figured out!

    p.s. can we appeal to them to regroup against Boko Haram?

    Mercy we cry 4 oh Lawd!!! Now we wonder why the Victim/Justice ratio in Nigeria is 90 to 10%. Clearly it will make a lot of sense to tell her ass to have a rest and get ready to fly to the Courts for killing her Husband. This is not just a flying granny but a part-time murderer. Instead, the police had d cheek to say she would be out soon as Witchcraft is not a Crime. Hello……………… Then Make it A CRIME, u doughnut!!

    She should be locked up for the rest of friggin Life 4 all i care. but then again guys, Looking @ the bigger Picture, she might just fly fly fly away from her kirikiri boudoir. lol!

      Some of you people think you can stick your nose in the air and pretend not to know about the black arts. Witchcraft is all over the world. They can operate invisibly, turn to birds or Pussycats etc. Stuff will be happening to some people & they will be speaking grammer. Even white people know there is witchcraft.

    witchcraft falls under the mystical and supernatural, and if she used such means to kill her husband how are you going to prove it? you cannot prove mystical and supernatural because you need evidence cold hard facts not some teleputing.

    First of all the lynching/mob mentality of people we deem ‘criminals’ has to stop in Nigeria. It just has to!
    Am sad at most of the comments here;did it occur to any of you that this woman may be suffering from dementia? or Alzheimers? You don’t know what they are? Google is your friend. The same people who were going to lynch and burn this woman to death,may have cried over the ALUU video and sobbed over injustice…but now its an old woman who supposedly ‘confessed’ then she deserves to die and these same persons will say ‘am a christian’ and troop to church in their sunday’s finest to sing and dance! Hypocrites!!!

      It’s amazing dat as a woman and from your comment you have absolutely no Empathy for this unfortunate old defenceless woman. I assume if you were in the crowd you would have struck the first match and set this old mother ablaze. My dear your comment depict the sort of HEART you have. Witches don’t fly and transform in animals that’s fiction . The reality is that , they actually walk among use and wreak havoc with their hidden black twisted HEARTS. I make the sign of the cross, may God in his infinite mercy save us from Wicked evil people!

    I am not stupid or a bible basher. But this story is in my opinion probably true. I am an educated person and have studied to post graduate level abroad and work for a major international company. I love Nigeria and completed my Secondary School there. When I was in SS1/SS2 waiting in the compound for the driver to take me to school I was chased by two birds. The whole house though I was mad because of the way I screamed and ran back inside the house. It was something about the way they were swooping at me that was abnormal. Birds usually run from humans, but these two were bold as brass. We resumed fellowship before we went to school that morning oooo. Plead blood of Jesus. When I saw this story I immediately remembered that day. Some of you will read this and laugh die, others will take note.

Or perhaps her witchy craft was plagued with Dementia. Nonsense!. Just some random vulnerable old woman with no one to look after her!

      Unfortunately the less privileged have no Rights at all in a third world country with questionable human rights. Even women have no Rights talk less of an elderly woman, with the added misfortune of out living her husband. I looked after an elderly Nigeria woman in one of the hospitals out here. I asked her about returning home that woman told me if she went home her people will call her a witch.

      They got trapped and confused because the person they went after is a true Christian. They got caged. It happens. I have had a bird stalking my house after midnight for the past 3 years, even when am in another city, it still comes, always screeching. One month ago it dared to fly towards my bedroom window about 2am, still screeching. I roused from sleep with venom and released the fire of the holy ghost to consume it. I swear i heard the bird hit by a force stronger than it, it let out a deafning scream and vanished, it has never returned. That’s the sort of thing that cages them in the sky, the power of spoken word.

      Awwww, really. Am so sorry to hear of your psychotic episode. Next time u suffer scary hallucinatory symptoms get some clozapine or paliperidone. U don’t need a prescription in naija. I once met a man who swore that emails and such were witchcraft. According to him words that fly in the air and rearrange themselves in another place is witchcraft. His on clozapine now!

    In certain parts/culture of the world, e.g the red Indians tribes;original American natives, there is something called shape shifting. This is when a human takes the form of an animal. I think even the Ibo culture has something similar, going by the book leopard in a bottle.In response to those asking that such powets be used to solve human problems, how often have you heard of magical/ black/wizardry/witchcraft powers being used to make the world a better place?

    I think it is cruel and unusual the way people can look at this mama and bring her at her age to this level of harassment and disgrace. Disgusting and shameful a clear indicator of how we as a people see our elderly and frail members of the society. Witch craft is using Gods name to do this sort of wickedness. All those accusing her of witchcraft are indeed suffering the early stages of dementia.

      No dear I beg to differ. It is ignorance that has killed off the elderly in your village. The Witchcraft is the ability to continue to pass the idiot mutated gene from one generation to the next. Well if science is anything to go by , you’ll all soon be naturally culled hopefully sooner than later. Happy witch hunting.

    Bless your self with enlightenment, free yourself from ignorance. Your mindset has you in bondage giving you a spirit of fear. The devil feeds of ignorance and fear is not of God. Notting on earth has the power to transform from one thing to another. But the mind is a very powerful thing, if you believe with your heart that a human can transform, then every cat, lizard, fly, rat ant will have a message to deliver for you. So keep believing in your truth. Believing is receiving . Don’t try and convince people who have no faith in that sort of thing. If witchy is your portion bear it alone. Agree to disagree my dear and move on. The only victims of your ignorance is the children and old people who depend on others to protect them. Consider yourself in that old woman’s place. Being wrongfully accused!. The problem with your types is you lack empathy and instead you have wickedness in your heart. Call yourself a Christian?. Shame on you.
