. I’m obeying God’s divine order
A woman from hell who subjected herself, kids including a five -year -old daughter to one-month compulsory dry fasting and prayers has declared that she was obeying God’s order. The Lagos State Police Command, however, rescued children from the weird woman.
The woman, an indigene of Anambra State, Caroline Emezie, claimed that God directed her to start a ministry and to use her children as her first converts that would fast along with her for the success of the ministry. Sister Caro as she preferred to be addressed and the children were taken to Shasha police station where they would be transferred to the Ministry of Social welfare.
A woman (names withheld), who gave them the shop they stayed was arrested and quizzed for not reporting the ugly development to the police. It was gathered that the woman and her children had approached the shop owner pleading with her to give them a room to a sleepover as they were stranded. The shop owner offered them an empty shop and gave them two weeks to enable them to get accommodation.
A police source said that after the expiration of the two weeks, Caro refused to quit, telling the shop owner that God instructed her to open up a ministry in the place. She also told the shop owner that God equally instructed her family to go on one-month of dry fasting.
The police officer said that the shop owner who was afraid the way the children were crying and dying of hunger, gathered some youths who forcefully ejected the family. According, to the police source, it was while the woman and her children were roaming the street, that a patrol team from Shasha police division picked the woman and her children among who is five- year- old.
Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, said the family had been rescued and taken to Shasha police station where they would be handed over to the appropriate ministry.
