Prophetess Bose Oluwole

Lagos Police authorities have arrested a “prophetess” who reportedly set her 9-year-old daughter ablaze during a spiritual cleansing.

The alleged prophetess, 37-year-old Bose Oluwole,  who attends a white garment church, told police that she set her child on fire because God instructed her to do so, Vanguard reports.

Her daughter, Damilola, was rescued by some youths in the area who heard her cries for help, and rushed to douse the fire.

“I was only obeying God’s instruction. I had a vision while praying that my daughter is from the witchcraft world. When I prayed to God over it, I received an instruction through the Holy Spirit to burn my daughter’s body in order to deliver her from the evil society,” Oluwole said. 

She has been charged with felony and attempted murder. She has pleaded not guilty to the charges, but will be held in custody at Kirikiri prison until June 2nd, when court hearings will resume.

    Having a baby does not make a woman a mother. No sane mother will do this to her child cus of witchcraft or devil-craft. She needs to rot in jail.

    Visual and auditory hallucinations ,Sounds a bit like schizophrenia to me. Unfortunately she’s in the wrong country for mental health issue.

    She heard voices – we all know it was not the voice of God – It is the same kind of voices that Abubakar Shekau hears. Ask any medical doctor, they’d tell you what that means. Please as a people when anyone is telling you that they are hearing voices, first check them out medically as soon as possible, and don’t be fooled by any garb of religiosity – they are definitely doing something secretly that is crazy bit by bit, until it becomes public knowledge. Let followers of heavenly revealed religions – Christianity, Judaism and Islam – study the lives of the “real” prophets of these religion who are no longer in the world in all these cases, learn how they worship God and what they taught about God, and model their lives around that. This way they’d not have to follow copy-cats of the real messenger.
