If you take into consideration all the things happening in Nigeria, you will come to a conclusion that these things are not ordinary.
All three major religions in Nigeria believe in some of sought of supernatural influence over events.
Problem is, Satan can see how close we are to the end of the world, and Nigeria seem to be having a dozen of almost everything.
Few days ago, some strange looking birds invaded Sokoto State. Not only that, the birds were accompanied by grasshoppers.
Now that’s weird seeing that birds eat grasshoppers and so both of them don’t cohabit.
The funny looking birds were all red billed. Scientists say the birds are the world’s most abundant wild bird species.
They have an estimated adult breeding population of 1.5 billion pairs. Some estimates of the overall population have been as large as 10 billion.
The birds, Quelea birds and grasshoppers, destroyed farm produce worth millions of naira.
The animals invaded twelve villages of Illela Local Government Area of Sokoto State, the Chairman of the council, Alhaji Abdullahi Haruna, has said.
Haruna told NANS in Sokoto that the swarms had been attacking farms in the area in the last two weeks.
The chairman listed the affected villages as Gati, Mallamawa, Diboni, Runguwar Ja’o, Bakin Dutse, Gidan Kirya, Araba, Mullela, Sonane, Runji, Tumbulukun and Munwadata.
He stated that farmers in the affected areas had lost their produce.
The animals mostly attacked millet, guinea corn, beans, groundnut, rice, onions, cabbage, garlic, carrots, tomatoes, pepper and other vegetables.
“The grasshoppers are still ravaging farmlands in all the affected villages, including Kamalo Lake.
“No fewer than 120 extension workers and other related officials from the state Ministry of Agriculture and the Agriculture Department of the local government are still conducting a spray exercise against the rampaging pests, Haruna said.
Is this just a coincidence or is it a warning message?
