A popular Nigerian gospel singer known simply as Buchi has a testimony of how a little boy saved him from kidnappers in the Northern part of Nigeria.
Sharing the story via his social media page, Buchi said if not for the boy wh delayed his entrance into a vehicle he thought was dispatched for his return after a gospel performance, Islamic militants would have kidnapped him for God knows what.
Here’s what Buchi posted on his Facebook page:
“I went to the Northern part of Nigeria, West Africa to minister as a gospel artiste some years back. As I got off the stage after ministration, there was this car waiting to take me to my hotel room with my protocol and security personnel.
“I put my left leg into the car and was about to lift my right leg but somebody held me. I looked down; it was a boy of about 4 – 5 years old holding onto my leg. I couldn’t get into the car; neither could I shake him off. So I disembarked from the car and picked up the boy.
“I lifted the boy up to my chest to take some photographs with him. In anger, the driver and my protocol personnel shouted, “Man of God, don’t you know the security situation in this place, let us go! It’s dangerous here. We need to leave.”
“But, I couldn’t drop the child as he held onto my shirt. I took more pictures with the boy. As this was going on, some men showed up asking for my bible and other things. ‘We are here for you’, they said. Then I asked, ‘Who are you”? They said they were my security details. I said I already gave my things to the protocol officers in the car.
“Immediately the other security in the car saw them, they sped off, almost knocking off people in the process. But for that little child, I would have entered into the wrong vehicle, kidnapped by Islamic militants. God sent me an angel in the form of a 4-year-old boy. Immediately, I felt so cold.
