JESUS APPARITION IN NIGERIA
Saint Mary's Catholic primary school, Aking in Akamkpa Local Government area of Cross River State (Nigeria) last weekend became a centre of attraction when the image of a man suspected to be Jesus Christ appeared on the wall of the school.
The picture of the man, clad in white garment with a lamb on the right hand side and a staff in his left hand appeared on the wall with light shining around the area, attracting various people to the scene.
Reports said the picture disappeared after 10 minutes but stayed for several hours on the wall on a second appearance. It was also gathered that after the second appearance the head of the man with a long beard appeared for a longer period.
According to the deputy headmaster of the school, Mr Bassey Itaya, the fingerprint of the man is still visible on the wall of elementary 3A classroom. Mr Itaya said that people from all walks of life thronged the school premises to have a glimpse of the mysterious picture on the wall which remained like a television screen throughout the scene.
The councillor representing the ward in Akamkpa Local Government, Mr Lawrence Effa, who was also present, described the incident as the first in the history of the area, saying that he was confused. He wondered what was the significance of the picture on the wall. From: THE NIGERIAN CHRONICLE, Cross River State, Nigeria, 3 October 1988
