More reactions have continued to trail the miraculous sight of a
Cross around Assakio Central Mosque in Lafiain Lafia Local Government
Area, LGA, of Nasarawa State, as the teenage girl, Hajara Husseini, who
reportedly first saw the image a few metres from the mosque, has been
hidden and ‘ferried’ to Bauchi State by her family.
The appearance of the crucifix in the vicinity of the mosque left
people in awe 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 and several people were said to have
received miracles at the site of the Cross.
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, New Telegraph gathered.
The teenage girl 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 have however revealed that Hajara was taken to Bauchi
where her biological father had gone to work before he got converted to
Islam, but the 15-year-old 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.
Recall that policemen were deployed to secure
the Mosque and environs following the discovery, and the state
commissioner of police, Mr. Abubakar Bello, who visited the scene of the
strange sighting, had stated that the appearance of the Cross should
not lead to controversy in the area.
