Lara was however a Christian and a prophetess for solid 25 years before answering the call to be a high priestess.
The maritime lawyer told Legit.ng in an exclusive interview that though born into a Muslim family, she started seeing visions and could tell future events as young as age 7.
Upon making religious and spiritual investigation, she was told that there is a higher calling upon her life.
Lara said even as a prophetess, she still felt amiss until the call to be a high priestess was answered.
The businesswoman said her husband - who is an elder in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) - has been a great support in spite of the fact that their religions are not the same.
The high priestess lamented that most Africans have a wrong view of traditional religion.
