Even the gods want better life – Reactions as Yoruba deity is spotted casting vote in Lagos

As the governorship and state house of assembly elections take place across Nigeria, a sight which comes as a relief to the tension is that of the representative of the gods casting his vote.

A Yoruba deity known as ‘Ara Orun’ (People of Heaven) as seen casting his ballot at a polling unit in Lagos state while donned in his complete costume.

The masquerade was at a polling booth being directed on how to thumbprint on the ballot paper.

According to ancient beliefs, Ara Orun emanated directly from Heaven and were appointed lesser African gods and goddesses that had superpowers.

A photograph of the Yoruba god in human form surfaced online and generated interesting reactions.

Meanwhile, a Nigerian evangelist of the Lord’s Chosen Ministry was recently captured on tape ‘delivering’ masquerades that accosted her team in public.

She engaged in spiiritual warfare with the traditional representatives of the gods and they put on an interesting display.

A video making the rounds online shows two masquerades harassing a young lady who was with the preacher and when she saw that they did not want to let her go, she began to pray fervently.

The woman put on an intense prayer session on the street and as she was doing that, the masquerades decided to play along.

The two of them paced back and forth as she was calling on the Almighty to save them and deliver the traditional worshippers.

It got to a point that the masquerades started acting like the prayer was weakening them, and they fell to the floor to give the impression that evil is being cast out of them.
