Woman Found on Abuja Church Roof & Called a Witch Says 'She's A Prayer Warrior'

Posted in: ,

Yesterday, a middle-aged woman, caused a stir in Kubwa, Abuja when she was found naked on the rooftop of the All Saint’s Fellowship Church close to the Kubwa Village market. Some spectators recognized her as Ope Kubona, a member of the community but others labelled her a bird-witch that had been caught on the roof by the power of the Holy Spirit and they wanted to lynch her.

Kubona, who sold beans cake and was well known in the neighbourhood, was saved by the quick intervention of the police..

According to Punch, the police team, led by the Kubwa Divisional Police Officer, Surajudeen Ayobami, brought down Kubona from the roof and asked her children to bring items of clothing for her before she was taken to the station.

“We rescued the woman from the All Saint’s Fellowship Church, where we found her naked on the rooftop. I learnt she has psychiatric problems, but the spectators believed she was a witch and wanted to attack her, so we had to bring her to the station and place her under protective custody.”

Now one of Ope Kubona's children, Elizabeth, 21, has opened up on her mother's mental health issues saying her mother had been behaving strangely for about three months.

She added that moves to take the woman back to her village in Okitipupa, Ondo State, failed, as she refused to leave the house.

Elizabeth said she observed that her mother disappeared from their room around 4am, and was later found stark naked on the roof of the church.

“It was around 4am that I noticed that she was not in the room, but I didn’t know where to search for her because it was dark. But in the morning, one of our neighbours saw her on the roof of the church and came to tell us that our mother was on the church roof. The police later came and brought her down."

At the Police station, the woman went berserk, shouting at her children and the policemen. She almost attacked a pregnant woman, who attempted to take her picture with a smart phone.

Talking to no one in particular, she described herself as a “prayer warrior” and abused her children for disrupting her peace.
