People are now fighting themselves over who will touch the image of Jesus Christ in Benue State, thought to have magical powers.
Saint Augustine’s Catholic Church, Nenger, Makurdi, Benue State has become a centre of attraction as residents and people from far are now trooping to the place to touch the image of Christ alleged to be glittering like precious stone. We had earlier reported how the church became a popular place of attraction last week as scores of people, Christians and Muslims, men and women, young and old, trooped in from long distances as the news spread across the state ravaged by the Fulani herdsmen since the beginning of the year. 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. Now, crowds have refused to leave the church as people fight each other to touch the image of Christ inside the church.
