A report has it that in Makurdi, the Benue State capital, a Jesus-like image accompanied by bright light appeared at Saint Augustine’s Catholic Church, Nenger, on Monday.
Christians and non-Christians were said to rush to the church, located behind Government Model College, Makurdi, to get a glimpse of the reported image of Jesus Christ as the news spread like wildfire around the town.
Reports said people came from all the 23 local government area of the state, majority of them from Mslurdi community.
New Telegraph reported that a bright image fell on the crucifix of Christ, and witnesses said the image, which was a carbon copy of the structure of Christ when he rose from death after he was crucified and buried, had on its head a crown, while the entire body was glittering, like precious stone.
It said several witnesses moved close to it and placed their hands on it, shouting: “Jesus save me,” “Jesus the son of God, have mercy on me.”
The paper said one of the parishioners, Mr. Emmanuel Hembenkaan, told its correspondent that the image appeared on Friday during a 3p.m. prayer session known as “Devine Mercy.”
