A group of pilgrims led by a tour guide, Mueen Akvoush and the Executive Chairman, Kogi Christian Pilgrims Commission, Samuel Oluwafemi, visited Gedara, where Jesus Christ cast demons out of a madman possessed of an unclean spirit.

The pilgrims prayed to God to cast out the spirit of destruction of lives, banditry, kidnapping and criminal elements, who had been responsible for the state of insecurity in parts of the country.

Mr Oluwafemi urged the pilgrims to take advantage of the spiritual exercise to improve on their relationship with God, and solicit for His intervention in their daily activities.

“I encourage every pilgrim to pray fervently for God’s intervention on the challenges confronting our families and nation in particular, and keep reconciling for the growth, unity and togetherness of our nation.”
