Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has ordered the closure of two churches, a seminary school and one hospital in Saminaka, Lere local government area of the state.

The governor ordered that the institutions be closed down immediately to prevent breakdown of law and order in the area.

The closure, according to the governor, was as a result of prolonged leadership crisis in the Assemblies of God Church (AGC) in the area.

She delivered the cat which reportedly died minutes after it came out from the woman’s womb. An Ughelli based Journalist, Ode Williams who claimed to be a member of the church said, ”It’s not fake. I was there live and I witnessed it.” When Daily Post contacted the General Overseer of God in Action Liberation Ministry, a.k.a, Shallom Embassy, Prince Ovie Emmanuel to speak on the miracle which has left many in doubt, he confirmed the report saying,”It happened yesterday at about 8pm during a programme” The General Overseer who spoke through a cleric of the church, Pastor Great Otejiri said, ”It is a spiritual thing that cannot be explained. It’s a supernatural occurence by the kingdom of darkness and the Kingdom of light took it out of the woman.” The cleric who could not give the full names of the woman in question, however, invited our correspondent to attend the ongoing programme to get more details of the development so as to quench the doubts from the public.
