A church pastor and his members fled for their lives after a snake appeared on the alter during a deliverance section.
The incident happened at Greater Grace Deliverance Ministry, Kakuri in Kaduna State. The pastor, Naphthali Biem was reportedly conducting a deliverance section for a women and the snake appeared on the church’s alter.
A church usher raised alarm after seeing the snake which made the pastor as well as member run for their lives.
An eye witness said: “Other members of the church also ran after the pastor when he took off.”
The snake was later killed after some minutes as reports say it crawled and hid behind the church’s speaker. The service ended with some members staying outside the church.
Narrating the incident to newsmen, Pastor Biem said the snake was sent by enemies:
“It was strange and devilish. I have never witnessed such thing in my over 30 years in the ministry. If you check around, you will discover that there is no bush around here.
“How the snake got in here is still a mystery. Our enemies are at work but we won. Thank God it didn’t hurt anyone.”
