BIRD FALLS INTO GUTTER, TURNS INTO A WOMAN IN LAGOS



Early Friday morning, a "bird," as alleged fell into the tiny opening of a deep gutter near Ojuelegba in Surulere, Lagos. After a while, a female human being was stretching her hands through it and calling for help. Soldiers from the nearby Abati Barracks were called upon and they rescued her. 
It was alleged by witnesses that this woman must have flown as a bird for a "Witch" meeting and got trapped in the gutter. But the woman could not explain how she got there. However, she confessed to being a witch and that God had sent her there so she could confess.




Crowd gathered almost immdiately as is usually the case in Nigeria during any incident, and many opinions were made open. Some said that  the woman was on her way from Oshogbo, Osun State, south-West of Nigeria, but got drained by the rain. (But how did she get into the gutter?). Others said she is a witch, who had come for a mission as a bird, and on trying to transform back to human, something went wrong.

An eye witness who chose to write with hidden identity said, "This is real ooo! I was dir dis morning on my way cumin bac frm yaba, she is truly a witch, ppl came down frm d bus so I did tu, n she said she stays at ikire at osun dat dey came for a meeting here in lag. it was as if I was watching nollywood film ni, wonders shall never end." (I hope you do understand this social media English the witness used).

The woman was actually questioned before being rescued but all she could say, with tears was, ''Please I need water, help me''. 
After a welder had helped to cut the barriers and then a man went into the gutter and brought her out completely naked, she said, "My name is Amudat Jimoh, It was God that sent me here, He (GOD) said I should confess my sins so that I don't die, please I need water to drink, help me, I don't know how I found myself here, please help me..."

She was later moved away for medical attention by a Lagos State ambulance. 
This is yet another mystery that needs to be solved. If this woman is mentally okay, spiritually, is she? But spiritually occurrences like this are subjective, hard to prove with facts, and many will surely find it hard to believe that in 2014, humans can still fly as birds. Is this just another African, or Nigerian  story? We hope the woman will be properly and holistically taken care of, so to get the best info from her and be rehabilitated.

But one question I want  to ask is: Did anyone really see a bird flying, crawling or falling into that gutter?
