Kidnapped! Released From Ritual Killers After Prophecy

It was in desperation that Mr. Innocent Osuoha and his wife, Patience, rushed to The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN) on Sunday 13th June 2010. The couple wept in silence, prayerfully clutching the pictures of two young children. Nnaemeka and Chigozie, their only sons, had been kidnapped merely days earlier, with no trace or sign of them since. Having heard countless stories of ritual killing and children sacrificed, the couple came all the way from Cotonou, Benin Republic where they reside, to commit their situation into God’s hands, knowing only divine intervention could prevail.

Their petitions soon attracted God’s attention as Prophet T.B. Joshua sighted Patience in the midst of the crowd and called her out. “Madam, I can see you are grieved,” the prophet began. “But I want to assure you that you will find those children that are missing. As we are talking now, God is releasing them.” Patience had not shown the pictures to the prophet, nor had she told a single soul about their predicament. It was a revelation from above. Tearfully praising God, she explained to the congregation that her two sons had gone out to have a haircut a few days before and had not returned home. Frantic efforts were made to find them and the police authorities were alerted, but all to no avail. The Prophet revealed the children were actually taken for ritual purposes, but authoritatively declared that the kidnappers were already confused and about to release them. The congregation joined Mr and Mrs Osuoha to rejoice at the prophetic declaration, and the duo headed straight home after the service, their fears and anxieties replaced with a strong faith.

A week later on Sunday 20th June 2010, the family returned to The SCOAN to confirm the prophetic declaration with an incredible testimony of God’s protection. Nnaemeka and Chigozie had returned unscathed and untouched! Mrs Patience explained that she was at home with her husband three days after their visit to The SCOAN when her phone rang. “It was my son!  He told us they were safe and asked us to pick them up at the place the kidnappers had abandoned them,” Patience blissfully testified. Her husband immediately traced the location of the children and the family were joyously reconciled.

Narrating his experience, Nnaemeka, 11, said that on the fateful day they were kidnapped, a strange man had walked up to them informing them that he wanted to buy them something. “While we were going with him, I can’t explain what happened to me – I just fell asleep. I woke up the next day discovering that I was in a strange place. I told my brother, ‘It’s like they have kidnapped us’.” Even at his tender age, Nnaemeka and his sibling had strong faith in God and began to pray fervently. “We began to call upon the Lord. We prayed to the Lord for His mercy upon our lives.” He explained that each time they were caught praying, the three kidnappers would mercilessly beat them up, telling them to stop disturbing them with prayers. Adjacent to the small room they were being kept was a door. One day, Nnaemeka summoned courage to open it, hoping to discover some sort of escape route. Within the room was a hideous looking idol, too grotesque for the young boy to describe. He fearfully slammed the door and continued in prayer. “They wanted to use their parts,” T.B. Joshua soberly stated. “It’s not your money or anything they needed but the parts of their body – to use for ritual”.

Nnaemeka continued: “They kept us in the room and didn’t allow us to go outside. Each time we went to the rest room, they would bring us back and lock us inside. They only gave us water and gari to eat.” However, all was not well in the kidnappers’ camp as the two brothers began to hear them arguing violently. “On Wednesday, when I was locked up and praying with my brother, I overheard them fighting and quarrelling among themselves. I heard one of them say, ‘Why did you bring these children here? They keep disturbing us!’ ” Later that day, the captors called Nnaemeka and asked for his dad’s phone number. They then carried the boys to another location, and gave him a phone to speak to his father. Nnaemeka hurriedly told him their location, upon which the kidnappers fled the scene, leaving the two boys alone. The rest is history!

Utilising the opportunity to address the world concerning the gift of prophecy, T.B. Joshua stated: “By what mark may we discover a cheat? If he gives us any sign or foretells something to come and the event is not according to his prophecy, we may come to a conclusion and say, ‘He is not sent of God’ ” He also counselled parents to be careful of where their children go, stating that we live in a danger zone where everyone lies to his neighbour. Chigozie, Nnaemeka’s younger brother also chipped in a few words: “I want to thank God for the prayers of God’s people and the help of T.B. Joshua. If not, I don’t think we would be alive today.” Mr Osuoha expressed his heartfelt appreciation to God for rescuing his two sons. “Today God has put joy into our family. May His name be glorified! I don’t know how to say it, but today – I am full of joy! Thank You, Jesus!”

    I saw Prophet T B Joshua talking the parents of this particullar day and I only believed in my heart that was God speaking through him and I knew very well that it was going to come to pass and when I watched the testimony I was glad too to see it to pass because I knew from the on set that God was speaking through the Prophet as the Prophet t B Joshua always say that it requires a man to have faith to know another man of faith.I thanked God on this particular day for all that He did and revealed through the Prophet T B Joshua and it was beyond man comprehension and understanding.May God use him abundantly in all areas in Jesus Name
