The man who sleeps in a casket

An octogenarian, Samuel Kogberegbe, told journalists on Friday that he has been sleeping inside a coffin for over forty years now.

Kogberegbe, the founder of Holy Michael Church of the Lord (Aladura), in Egbe, Lagos, who spoke as part of activities to mark the church’s 50th anniversary which holds on Sunday, 3 June, 2012, said he had slept in the coffin to remind himself of life’s vanity and that one day, he would die.


He said his action was also to teach Nigerians to be conscious about death and thus change their negative ways of life. “I believe that death is certain and I am going to end in that coffin,” he said.
The cleric also declared that former President Olusegun Obasanjo was correct to have called Nigerian lawmakers armed robbers at a function in Lagos recently. According to him, Obasanjo’s description of the country’s lawmakers as armed robbers was correct in every sense of reasoning.
He accused the lawmakers of not having any feeling for the suffering masses that voted for them, and warned church leaders to abstain from evil practices, claiming that only through this would they be able to salvage the country.

    The man is plain sick and evil, serious investigation should be carried out on the man's activities, you'd be surprised @what evil he has his hands deep in, ranging fromw ritual killings to molesting and abusing some members of his congregation. This man's hands are not clena, I smell pure evil.
