Without wasting much time, the people had started screaming ‘blood of Jesus’ as fears had started mounting over the possibility of having a witch inside the popular market as most people described the mammal as a witch in bird form.
Saasala, one of the people at the scene of the event, said: “So I was inside the Ikotun market today to get some foodstuff when I heard people shouting blood of Jesus, some speaking in tongues.
“I turned back to see this beautiful owl trying to escape from a shop. The man in this picture hacked it down with a thick rod. Everyone said it is a witch in bird form.”
