Almost 3000 alleged cultists have denounced cultism and voluntarily submitted their weapons to a priest, Reverend Father Abel Abulu, after listening to his sermon.
Gokana local government area residents were left in shock on Saturday, March 4, after witnessing the miracle which a lot of people thought was impossible.
According to The Punch, the alleged cultists had on two occasions refused to submit their arms to the committee in charge of the amnesty programme, feigning that they did not have guns.
It was gathered that they denounced cultism and also submitted different kinds of guns after listening to Abulu’s message towards restoring peace to the area.

One of the repentant cultists, Denbesi Isaac, expressed that the decision to lay down arms was made because they were tired of living like they do.
He also called on the state government to join efforts with the Christian community to ensure that cultism is brought to an end.
Isaac said: “We thank God that we are alive today. It was the preaching that the Rev. Father gave to us on the several visits he made to us that made us to change our mind. To me it is the handiwork of God.”
“We are calling on the state government to include us in their amnesty programme. They should train and empower us so that we would not think of going back to our past lives.”
