Nigerian pastor eaten alive by lions in 1991
Legit.ng previously reported how a Nigerian pastor was devoured by lions while trying to recreate a Bible story.
Reports claimed the incident happened in 1991 but there was no generally accepted evidence of how Abodunrin entered the lions' enclosure.
Prophet Abodunrin was said to have donned a red flowing robe and a big Holy Bible as he approached the lion's enclosure.
He refused to heed the warnings and shoutings of alarmed zoo keepers. Some accounts said Prophet Abodunrin actually sneaked into the lion's enclosure.
