My friend once told me to use want I have to get what I need. A 44 year woman, Mrs Bose Olasukanmi whose arm was used for business by various pastors to perform fake miracles been arrested by the Inspector General of police Intelligence Response Unit( IRT) in Lagos.
A reliable source revealed that Olusukanmi would relocate to other churches after a successful operation to avoid being recognised.
According to her, the arm was once injured in an accident in a way that’s why it looks twisted.
She would convince the congregation that the arm had been like that from childhood, all medical efforts made to correct it proved futile. At this juncture, the presiding pastor will mention her predicament and ask her to come out, the pastor will ask her if she desire to be “healed”, then he would engage in speaking in tongues for some minutes and thereafter, command the evil spirit tormenting her to get lost.
The congregation would watch in total silence as they want to see a miracle. Gradually the hanging arm would descend until it rest in its normal position.
Shouts of hallelujah would shook the church auditorium to its foundation.
In confession, Olasukanmi stated,
“I am a native of Illesha, Osun State. I am married and I had three children. Unfortunately, two of them died few hours after delivery.”
“My husband loved me so much that he did not want me to do anything. He wanted me to be a full time housewife. He honoured all my requests and treated me like a queen. But when he died, my life changed and I started suffering because everyone abandoned me”
“Although I had my primary school certificate, the only work easily available at the time was to serve a food vendor to at least be sure of daily food. But when the suffering became unbearable, I decided to relocate to Lagos in search of greener pastures in 1989. Unfortunately, I lost my mother in 1990 and went back home to pay her my last respects. After my mother’s burial, I returned to Lagos and secured a job as a food assistant in a restaurant in Surulere area without a salary”
“The owner of the restaurant only allowed me to eat as much food as I wanted. Some customers also dashed me money which I used to buy body cream and soap to birth and wash my clothes. I did not save a dime but it helped me a lot.”
“I worked for nine years without a salary and I had no alternative but to start planning how to open my own restaurant or even hawk food in Surulere area. Unfortunately, as I was walking on the roadside one evening, a vehicle that had lost its breaks came from nowhere and knocked me down, breaking my right arm and left leg in the process, with other minor injuries all over my body.”
“I had no money to treat myself after I was abandoned by the driver of the vehicle that knocked me down. Life became difficult as I had stopped living with my sister before I had the accident.”
“The loss of my husband in October 2018 had made me to go and live with my sister. But when I secured a job at the restaurant, I left her house and rented a room in the same Surulere area.”
“After the accident, everybody abandoned me and I had no money to continue to pay for a room. It was under this condition that I met a woman friend I had known since 2008. Her name is Fatila Musa. She used to give me money to eat and ameliorate my suffering”
“One day, she took me to her church and told me that the church had a two-month programme and she would like me to accompany her. When I accepted, she told me that I should use what I had to get what I wanted, I did not know what she meant by using what I had to get what I wanted, considering what the accident had done to my beautiful body. She then told me that what I had could help me to get what I wanted, and that the thing I had was my broken right arm.”
“I asked how and she said she would teach me how to carry my arm up and bring it down in a way that the congregation would believe me, and when I collect the money for the role I played, it would be reasonable.
“She said that after a day rehearsal, she would take me to a pastor at Calvary Close in Ogba area of Lagos.
“The day I performed in the pastor’s church, I got N9,000. Life became sweet as they were happy with my performance. In 2009, she took me to Port Harcourt. I performed in three churches in three days. One of the churches is owned by one Pastor Okafor. The same year, we moved to Abakiliki in Ebonyi State.”
“I am a Muslim. The pastor would only ask me to bring my hand down and I would start bringing it down as if his power was the one bringing it down. Then I would be jumping in ecstasy to deceive the congregation and the people would be clapping with joy and praising God for the miracle. I cannot remember the names of all the churches she took me to. When I was in Lagos, she used to come and take me from my rented one-room apartment in Igando area of Lagos. But in Port Harcourt and Abakaliki she put me in one of the rooms in the church premises.”
According to reports, her fake miracle was brought to light after several videos of her being “healed” surfaces online.
Olasukanmi has promised to lead the police to the pastors involved.
