She was ten years old when she met him
She had measles and had been “quarantined”
in one room in the house
Her body was covered in calamine lotion
She was running temperature and she had
She had also been given an injection by
their neighbour who happened to be a doctor.
She was half asleep!
He walked into the room out of nowhere
He was wearing a white garment
There was a long chain on his neck
He had anklets and matching hand chains
He walked with confidence
Smiling at her like they were old friends
She smiled back!
He walked over to her and sat right next
to her on her bed!
She had spent about three days alone in
Her mother came in only twice a day
They didn’t discuss much
There was a radio beside her bed playing
a gospel song nonstop
That was all the human interaction she had
access to on her lonely, sick bed
He laid down beside her and draped his
right hand across her shoulder
She snuggled into him
They were a perfect fit
She heard music in her heart
There was a flood of joy
It was as if her soul found a part of it which
had been missing for a long time
She slept off with a smile on
When she woke up hours later,
he was gone!
But she was sure he would be back
Though he didn’t say a word to her,
she understood that they had both
found each other and they can no
longer be separated
He kept coming until she was healed
and declared fit to mix with others
He was there when she gained admission
into the boarding house some months later
He was not a figment of her imagination
He was real!
As she grew, he grew!
He was her best friend and her soulmate
Sometimes he would appear o her in the
examination hall and help her with her papers
She graduated from university
She got a job!
She had never had a “real” relationship
All she had was him and she was fine with it
But nobody else seemed to get it!
Her mother was running from pillar to post
praying that her daughter will get
She was the prayer point of the whole
All her friends got married and she wished
She was the best lady for four of them
When he mother realized that she wasn’t
bothered about it as she ought to be
Her mother started harassing her father
“You are indulging this girl, you are not talking
To her! You have left her to me so that
people will say I am an irresponsible mother
who watched helplessly as her daughter
failed to fulfill her marital destiny”
Her father, took her somewhere for prayer
They met a prophet
The prophet told her father about her unusual
The prophet said “Your daughter was born as
one of a set of twins!
His twin brother died at birth and you guys
didn’t do the appropriate ritual!
The spirit of her late brother is with her and
the two of them have forged a strong tie
What they have is stronger than marriage!”
Her father paid the prophet a lot of money
to get rid of the ghost of the twin brother!
The prophet did some rituals and he assured
them that it had been done
That same night, a relationship that had
always been platonic became sexual!
She saw him in her dreams and it wasn’t fun
He was angry and called her an ingrate!
She had never seen him like that before
He flogged her with a broom and ordered
her to remove her clothes!
They had been together for eighteen years
and all he had to do was ask her politely!
He treated her badly, like she was his slave!
He raped her that night!
Even though she didn’t resist him, he still
had his way and taunted her about it
until she woke up from the nightmare
It became clear to her that she had been
playing with fire
She needed to get rid of him
She went to see the prophet
She wanted to be free
The prophet told her to pick her slippers
and run as fast as she could back to her house
if she didn’t want him to curse her!
She wanted to ask him what was wrong
but he wouldn’t even entertain a word from her!
She left the prophet’s house dejected!
When she got home she told her father
Her father was gobsmacked!
“You have been seeing and even sleeping
with a ghost?”
Her father felt she was making things up
Her father kept saying the enemy had
afflicted her with mental illness!
It seemed her father never really believed
Her father just played along so that he can
tell her mother that he did something about
Her words were too difficult for her father
Nobody talked about her situation for the
next three years!
In those three years, she could barely sleep
peacefully for three hours every night!
She was harassed, raped, beaten, tied up,
shot at and abused almost every night!
It was so horrible that she was always scared
The day she clocked 31, she drank a bottle
The torture was too much
But she didn’t die!
She was miraculously rescued from death
by her sister who walked into the room
just in time and called for help!
She woke up at the general hospital
Her life was hanging by a thread!
Somehow she survived
She told her parents what she had
been going through
This time around they believed her
Somebody told her mother there was
a local charm they can do for her
An idol that an herbalist will invoke the
ghost of her brother into so that she can
be left alone!
Her parents were told to cook beans and
share it in the neighborhood
That same night she was supposed to
sleep beside the idol in her room while the
herbalist will do the incantations to bind
her late brother’s spirit!
She was going to be free at last!
The herbalist had a serious accident on
his way to their house that night.
When they heard the news, they all got scared!
They had been warned that one of the
most difficult spirits to appease was the
spirit of the twins!
They didn’t know what else to do!
The next day was a Wednesday, her
Father went to an interdenominational prayer
meeting held by a church a few houses away
from their house.
After the service, he waited behind to see
The pastor gave him the phone number of the
brother in Jeans and T-shirt!
He told his story!
The brother in Jeans and T-shirt told him
to bring his daughter
He made a phone call!
Within thirty minutes, his wife and daughter
The brother in Jeans and T-shirt told her
about the power of the Holy Spirit!
He said “If you accept Jesus as Lord and
Saviour today and I get you baptized in the
Holy Spirit and Fire, no evil spirit will be able
to come near you ever again!”
He led her to Christ
While she was making her confession,
she started to scream!!!
They all watched her!
The Holy Spirit has a way of dealing with human
realities on the spot!
When he heals, he heals completely!
She cried for almost an hour
She just couldn’t stop!
When she was done, she looked slimmer
The brother in Jeans and T-shirt told her
never to entertain the thought of past affliction!
It was a dead reality!
Her parents also gave their lives to Christ and
were baptized in the Holy Spirit!
A few months later, she met her husband!
They got married in November 2018
Ps: There is nothing like a friendly demon!
It is not possible for evil to be good
Do not suffer in silence!
If you have used charms and done some
things on your body that are demonic
You can walk out of it into your freedom
Call upon the name of Jesus today
