“There is a strange man in our midst,” the man of God Prophet T.B. Joshua said. He pointed out the man from a distance and prophesied that he sees blood – human blood – in him. “Do you eat human flesh?” the man of God asked directly.
“Yes, I eat human flesh fresh,” the man admitted without a blink. What followed was a violent manifestation of the demonic spirit of cannibalism in the man after the man of God touched and prayed for him in the power of the Holy Spirit. The man explained that this problem started when he was young and his mother served him meat from an unknown source. Growing up, he realised that he had an unquenchable urge to murder and eat the flesh of human beings.
In exposing his practice, he confessed he would dig a deep pit in his house which he would cover with a couch, lure people home and offer them a seat. He would then push his unsuspecting visitor inside; if the fall did not kill them, he would kill them and immediately eat their flesh. He said he used to burn many witchcraft items and shrines in order to increase his demonic powers.
He also confessed that if someone died in the community, he and his fellow cannibals would go to the cemetery at night, dig up the dead body and feast on it in a ghoulish manner. On numerous occasions, he was arrested when family members of the bodies he had dug up and eaten suspected him and reported him to the police. He had also been arrested several times on account of murder.
He said the urge had pushed him to do things beyond human comprehension and that it was when he discovered Emmanuel TV in Uganda that he decided to come to The SCOAN to seek deliverance from his gory appetite. Prophet T.B. Joshua delivered him in the name of Jesus Christ.
