Thousands of people have besieged the resident of one Michael Ibironke in Ogun since two trees appeared with what appeared to be an Arabic inscription believed to be the name of Allah.
The Moringa trees were located at No.6, and No.9, Unity Street, Ire-akari Estate, Iloye, Abule Iroko, Ado-Odo Ota, Ogun State on December 24, 2016 and January 2, 2017, respectively.
Mr. Ibironke, the occupant of the house where one of the trees was found, said what happened remained a mystery to him. Mr. Ibironke, who said he has been living in the house for more than 17 years, said the Moringa trees were planted in 2014.
He said that since the discovery, thousands of people of different faith have visited to see the trees, offer prayers and appreciate the work of God.
“On December 26, 2016, we celebrated Christmas party in my compound and did not discover anything. But on the January 2, while I was doing my morning exercise with my wife, she called my attention to it. My wife was the one that discovered it.
We are not Muslims, so we called a Muslim brother (Mr Ajibade) to explain the strange thing. We also invited an Imam, who also confirmed it. Over 10,000 people of different faith have visited my house since January 2. On Thursday at about 12 noon, my son counted over 3,000 people.
We are not complaining about the disturbance, because it will mean we do not value the work of God. We are happy about it, people are greeting and praying for us. What happened has not affected our faith as Christians. People are celebrating and praising God. It is a mystery to everyone.
What God revealed to us is that He is the greatest, no man is equal to Him and He can reveal Himself in anyway,” he said.
A pastor, Olumide Olagbegi, said God was revealing to the people that He is the only God. A Muslim cleric, Hamzat Oyeyemi, said the sign was of God, adding it was a sign of goodness to the family and the people. Crdt: Jeloser, PremiumTimes
