The concept of reincarnation is not new to Africans but it came as a shock to one Okechukwu James Uwa who allegedly saw his dead wife on a motorcycle (popularly called Okada) in Lagos state.
Uwa an indigene of Ebonyi State, was reportedly travelling to Aba when he made a quick stop in Lagos to see an old colleague.
It was while he was moving through Oshodi that he saw his ‘dead’ wife.
Narrating the incident Uwa said,
“My wife died of motor accident two years ago which I have finished her burial but am shocked to see her with a man who was conveying her in his motorcycle.
“At first, I hesitated until I summoned courage and when I called her by her name, on turning to see me she disappeared.”
According to multiple online reports, the man she was with on the bike fainted and had to be resuscitated.
When he was questioned about the woman, he said she had been with him for eight months. He also said that she moved in with him after they met in a church.
“She told me she was all alone in Lagos working but told me she was from Ebonyi state. I have many times requested that I meet her people but she would decline saying that her people are evil”, the man said.
