Hundreds of people are thronging to Saint Augustine Catholic Mission, in Makurdi, Benue State to catch a glimpse of an apparition of Jesus Christ.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, the strange light, which showed the image of Jesus on the cross, suddenly appeared beneath the crucifix on the church’s altar in the early hours of Tuesday.
The light which shone as bright as a florescent tube held worshippers in awe as they struggled to touch the wall of the altar to offer supplications to God.
The catholic priest in charge of the mission, Rev. Fr. Celestine Tyowua, who confirmed the incidence, however, declined further comments insisting that the church would talk at the appropriate time.
Okada riders were making brisk business ferrying worshipers to the venue which had temporarily turned into some kind of pilgrimage centre.
