A 39-year old woman received 48 strokes of the cane from a self-acclaimed man of God in her quest to get a husband.

Josephine Uloma, who said she has been rejected by several suitors, told a crowd of worshippers  at a popular church in Asaba, Delta State, that for fifteen years she was infested with the spirit of limitations, anger and demonic measures.

Uloma, who broke down in tears while narrating her ordeals, said her quest to find solutions to her problems took her to a church in Enugu, where she was beaten and flogged 48 strokes by the pastor in charge of the church.

She noted that her trouble started when she turned down a marriage offer from a suitor who hailed from Enugu State.

“Few months later, I found myself in an unbridled anger and quarrelsome manner. I started beating up men who ask my hand in marriage. Any man who comes near me I will beat him up”.

"I was taken to several churches including one of the Pentecostal churches around Ezenei Avenue where I was flogged 48 strokes of cane by the pastor. And after I slept for twenty minutes, I took on the pastor, beat him up silly and forced him to eat from the sand”.

Speaking further, she explained that all she was doing within the period of the fifteen years were not immediately known to her until she was delivered by the prophet in charge of the church in Asaba.

Uloma, who denied that alcohol or Indian hemp was the cause of her problem, said: “My parents during the process thought I did not want to marry. They organized a man who came from London to marry me, and when we got there I beat him up after a minor quarrel, and I was arrested and deported to Nigeria.

"I later realized I was not myself when I came into Nigeria before I was introduced to King’s Chapel”.

She stated that since her deliverance, she has had over 120 suitors asking her hands in marriage, adding that all the suitors are currently being screened by God.
