What it means when you wake to find a Dead Owl at your Doorstep



An impromptu visit from your ancestors? Your enemies have been defeated? An acceptance from Hogwarts for your ward? It could mean anything… or nothing.

Media personality Ebuka Obi-Uchendu found a dead owl outside his door and Twitter users are going off ??.

He posted a photo of the dead bird, asking: “Why is there a dead owl at my door this morning?” and writing: “I’m sure your week has started a little different than mine…”

Of course, being who we are, Nigerians have come armored with stories about monitoring spirits and village enemies ???.

!They have been defeated”, “God has fought his battles”… Nigerians really come fully prepared to these things.

See what Twitter users think it means when you find a dead owl at your doorstep:

      That’s oyibo talk and mind. but for naija people na demonic tins o.
      If I see a dead owl in front of my house now, I will be unbothered, go about my day. If na my house for naija prayer, casting and roasting the devil, deliverance time.
      Chai, naija people are too consumed by the devil, everything is witchcraft and spiritual warfare.
      I like the oyibo people mindset better, i can live my life freely without fear of juju and superstition

    If na in the abroad, authorities will take it away for autopsy.
    But in Africa, it means sir your prayer rain and 70 days fasting prayers worked. Bros, sprinkle fire water round your house.

    Demonic forces are real guys, so real! but we are more than conqueror. We serve a living God.

    @tutu, why bother ? Let everyone continue to bury their heads in the sand concerning spiritual ssues. There is no devil, there are no demons, no angels, no witches, no voodoo, no hell, no heaven. Party, party, party eat, drink and be merry 24/7. Lol

    nigerians and their mass stupidity. why won’t ur politicians loot u guys dry and then rub it in ur faces when nobody in the country has any damn sense. the small group of people that have sense are castigated and called all sorts of names
    there is nothing like demonic forces. witches and wizards with magical powers dont exist. ur pastor is just using it as a means to con u out of u hard earned money.
    animals like owls vultures snakes and pure black/pure white domestic cats have been given a bad image thanks to silly superstitious africans. wake up people.

      Logic cannot explain some things.

      I have had experiences with a white cat and an owl before.
      In the late 80’s a white cat tried to run out of our compound, an elderly man shot like two or three times but the cat kept on running and eventually scaled the fence.

      In the same compound, I woke up and looked outside the window to find an owl staring at me. I stared back and the owl wouldn’t remove its gaze. I managed to fall asleep and woke up the next morning very weak.

      Ann Owl doesn’t fear gazes at all. Your fear for the bird got you weak, at most time of the day, they are blind. They are nocturnal animals.

    owls vultures cats snakes etc these animals are highly intelligent fascinating creatures they are not witches or wizards. this particular owl probably flew into an electric pole or naked wire and got electrocuted.

    there is a hairless domestic cat. it has no hair or fur on its body. it looks weird and creepy. I’m sure if many of u see this cat at night u will call it a witch and start casting and binding and speaking in tongues.

    no wonder white people mock us blacks.

      And you think the white people that mock us don’t believe or practice witchcraft too?
      demos exist big time….

      Gosh, why do you guys keep saying ‘oyinbo dont believe in witchcraft’? The Oyinbos around me here believe in the existence of witchcraft and demons. Look up Derek Prince on Youtube, in fact he will educate you on the existence of demons and manifestation of witchcraft activities in the church. He is Oyinbo.

      The church I attend is 98% oyinbo and my pastor ( who is oyinbo) sure believes in the existence of witchcraft. He even went on to say majority of the people who are in an asylum should actually be undergoing deliverance because it’s usually demons tormenting them. Now, this is in the US. He calls psychics, mediums and spiritists who use crystal balls to tell people’s future, witches. And I bet you, most of them are white.

      In the U.K., Manchester to be precise, I saw a ‘ school of witchcraft’ bus conveying students to school. These were oyinbo people going to learn how to become witches and wizards. They also have places like that in the US. And don’t say that witchcraft is different from African witchcraft, it is the same evil spirit.

    Funmilola leave Bruno. As if white people don’t believe in demons and witches.

    They may not carry it on their heads like Africans do but they sure believe in these things. The New Age religion is NOT a joke.

    Its very rare to see an owl but even if it was a bird he found, people will still believe its a witch.

    If you are going to be scared of every Ant that passes your front door then the devil no need to do any hard work. People just dey get raised BP for natural phenomenon. Let me tell you wat your tithe collecting pastor fails to tell you. The devil cannot create, God created every living thing. The devil is a master of illusion, so he will first concur with fear, then the dominos begin to fall, cumulating in self destruction. e,g the owl was sent to kill, induces fear, raised BP heart attack. I beg free una self. stop this dying several times (Anxiety from fear) before your actual death.
