There were reports some days ago that an illuminating crucifix was discovered in the vicinity of Assakio Central Mosque, in Lafia LGA of Nasarawa State, prompting the state government to deploy policemen to the mosque as hundreds of people from the area and neighboring places trooped to the place for deliverance.
The Cross, which is considered the symbol of Christ, was illuminated on the ground close to the mosque. More reactions have continued to trail the discovery, as the teenage girl, Hajara Husseini, 15, who reportedly first saw the image, has been hidden and ‘ferried’ to Bauchi State by her family, NewTelegraph reports.
Hajara, who is from the family of the Chief Imam of Assakio, upon sighting the cross, had said that she would start healing and performing other miracles, but on hearing this, her parents were said to have taken her away following concerns expressed by some members of the family.
She sighted the cross about 7:35 pm on September 28 in company of two girls and she was taken away after she prayed with some white men who visited the site of the Cross. Hajara has, however, not been seen since then.
Investigations revealed that Hajara was taken to Bauchi where her biological father had gone to work before he got converted to Islam, but Hajara has reportedly refused to eat, pleading with her parents to allow her return to Assakio to accomplish what she said God had directed her to do before the Cross.
