Recollections of Born Twice: From Demonism to Christianity (V)

Chapter 11: The Surrender

On the first day of the crusade. Kalu had deployed more than 100 of his agents to infiltrate the crusade ground. Some were assigned to sell a cocktail of rum or gin in small nylons while others were to distract listeners by engaging them in mundane discussions.

These were being monitored on the screen from the spirit realm. As crowds began streaming in, he gave them their signals and these agents commenced their assignments. Many of the attendees who bought the drink became tipsy and fell deeply asleep. But some spat it out, received the gospel and became saved.

On one of the days, a preacher mounted the crusade podium and began to pray. From the screen Kalu was viewing, this preacher was surrounded with flames of fire and as he preached on, some of their agents fell by the power of God. At the end of it, many of the agents were also converted. The others returned to give him their report.

The next day, he mobilized more agents to the ground and instructed them to bring back their reports, but most of them didn’t return as they were arrested by the power of God and became converted.

At this point, Kalu decided to launch attacks against the organizers of the crusade. He invoked the wind, rain and storms to destroy their billboards, posters and damage their items of equipment. That worked, or so it seemed.

By the third day, it was obvious that the more agents he sent to the crusade ground, the more their loss and the greater their defeat was becoming obvious. One afternoon, while the crusade was ongoing, an helicopter hired by the crusade team was distributing fliers of the program and Kalu’s window was opened. The wind made many of the fliers stream into his room.

He picked up a copy and saw “Greater Abiriba for…” with fury, he clutched at the papers, tore them, squeezed them and threw them out through his window. Not only has he sent his agents to this crusade at his own expense, they even had the effrontery to bring their fliers into his own room!

Later, he shut his window and reached for the last egg from India and after chanting the words required, he angrily smashed it on the floor. The chief demi-god appeared. This time he cared little about protocols and began venting in rage, shouting at the chief to behold the defeat and shame that have befallen the kingdom. He has already lost many agents in this war, he has done all he knew, yet there was victory in sight.

The chief sounded rather conciliatory, appealing to him to exercise understanding that they too were trying their best but there’s nothing much they could do at that point.

He proceeded to invoke Satan to address Kalu. When he appeared, he complained to him also also what was going on. Satan arrogantly stated that he would have the victory. He commanded Kalu to go to the crusade himself and make use of all the powers he had been given to thwart the crusade. Then he disappeared.

As the chief demi-god was speaking on, there was a roaring voice like that of thunder from above and he instantly disappeared too. At that moment, Kalu felt a great presence in his room. The room was dark, but a big white hand emanating a glow of light, appeared and began to write things in gold letters on the wall of his room.

He was so engulfed in fear, unable to even move his mouth as he felt totally subdued by the power in the room. A searing heat engulfed him making his heart thud so loudly that he could feel it in his mouth.

The hand wrote with the index finger: “Will you surrender to Me, Yes or No?”

He couldn’t answer. But in his heart of hearts, he affirmed yes. Then the hand wiped it off and wrote another: “Whether you like it or not, you will surrender and you will become a fisher of men.”

Then it wrote: “Write your surrender letter before you go to My crusade.”

With that, Kalu picked up a pen and paper and wrote his surrender letter. He could no longer control himself and was completely unable to resist the power of God which arrested him.

He went to the crusade ground the next day after enduring what he described as a searing heat like someone made to stand on a family long stick while the whole of Aba town was engulfed in flames. When he got to the place, he sat at the far back and dispersed his spirit man into different places which made the internal heat subside a bit. He quickly realized he wouldn’t be able to operate there.

He paid little attention to whatever was going on but from where he was, he could see with his occult eyes that Satan was right when he said he had captured Abiriba town because about 90% of the people at the crusade ground were stark naked before the powers of darkness.

The preacher that night was Rev. Uma Ukpai but he couldn’t remember the title of his sermon. Kalu clearly avoided looking at his direction because his face was radiant with the glory of God, just like those of the angels he encountered before. At the end of the sermon, he invited those who wanted to give their lives to Jesus Christ to come forward and he began to pray.

As he mentioned the name of Jesus, Kalu saw himself levitate several feets into the air and land back on the ground. The policemen and some people seated around him quickly fled. At that point he became physically unconscious but spiritually active as he tried to project his demons into the others who fell with him.

He was carried to the podium where the ministers began to pray for him. When he came out of consciousness, he reached into his pocket and gave one of the ministers his letter of surrender.

The man asked Kalu, “Have you given your life to Jesus Christ?” Kalu asked, “Who is Jesus Christ?” As he said that, one of the occult rings Satan gave him (the good, the bad, the destroyer) knocked him unconscious again, apparently to prevent him from affirming Jesus as Lord.

The pastors came together and began to pray for him as various demons began to manifest through him. He was said to pull out weeds from the grounds with his teeth and nails, ripple on the ground like snakes, swim and scream. When he came to, many of the visible and invisible rings on his toes and fingers had vanished, some of them had peeled out his toenails while leaving. The ministers further prayed for him and the light of God entered his heart.

He took them to his place and surrendered all his paraphernalia and occult tools for burning but two items refused to be burnt: the transcendental flying saucer (which demons utilized in supplying his applicants with power) and the ring Satan gave him (the good, the bad, the destroyer).

He was so exhausted that he fell deeply asleep but woke up later in the night to realize someone sleeping next to him. It was the queen. He was facing the wall while she was facing the other direction. She began to speak that she knew he has left them, but she’s ready to welcome him back if he chooses to return.

Kalu struggled to remember the name of Jesus. It wasn’t a name he was familiar with but he knew its efficacy. If only he knew, he could have asked anyone of the ministers to write it on the wall for him. Suddenly he remembered it and even before he called it out, the queen herself experienced a form a fire and quickly vanished.

He went back to sleep and was taken up to heaven accompanied by a friendly angel to see its beauty. The streets were more beautiful than the ones he had seen in the kingdom of darkness and their structures were superior. This, he was made to understand, was what God has prepared for those who serve Him.

Chapter 12: I will make you a fisher of men

After his salvation and deliverance, Kalu sought to live a normal life again. He visited a man who used to owe him some money and when he narrated his newfound faith to him, the man admitted he became suspicious he was involved in the occult due to some strange dreams he began having after he held on to his money.

He was paid back the money and he moved to another town. While he was there, he visited a friend who informed him that all his possessions he kept at his place had mysteriously disappeared from the room. Kalu assured him not to worry since he knew full well who had taken it.

He wanted to start a business and began to make some contacts. One of the contacts promised to take him to his boss who would help him procure the resources he needed. Then he followed the man, and after hours of journey, finally lead him to an uncompleted building in the outskirts of town.

As if he knew what was going on, Kalu wasn’t surprised to see Satan, the queen and two agents carrying the luggage that his friend had declared missing waiting for him there. The queen told him they had lots of goodies for him; they would give him more wealth and power and whatever he asked for, only if he’d sign on their register of agreement.

They handed him the register and he realized his name was no longer in it. They also gave him a blood-soaked pen to sign in agreement. When he saw the blood in the pen, he simply declared the blood of Jesus. At the mention of that, they all vanished, leaving him stranded at the place too as the money he earlier put in his pocket had also vanished with the spectres.

He met a man who was traveling to Afikpo (in Ebonyi State) to buy fish by canoe and he decided to help him. An elderly man he was carrying and didn’t know, suddenly paid his fare and he blurted out that he didn’t want his assistance; he had just been robbed and wanted to get by safely. When the man saw that he didn’t yield to his ploy, he quickly put the money back in his pocket.

Later that night, he was arrested by the police by sleeping at an unauthorized place and put in jail because they thought he was a thief. In the jail, one of the inmates walked up to him, introducing himself as the boss, and asked him for money, when he told him he had none, he dealt him a painful blow and left him.

That night, he had a dream in which an angel of God encouraged him not to be discouraged by his experience as God already planned that he would through that place become a fisher of men. He was told that God has called him to preach the gospel and narrate his testimony pointing to the love of God and His readiness to save no matter the depth of one’s sins.

When he woke up in the morning, he was really encouraged and after a day, he was set free and found his way back to his place and became established.

The book ends with series of questions and answers such as:

• Does Satan attack unbelievers too?
• Who were really the demi-gods and what are their roles?
• Why do some babies have ogbanje (familiar) spirits shortly after they are born?
• Why some children sought in white garment churches often have dreadlocks?
• How can someone who is not a member identify a member of their kingdom?
• Is it true that witches and satanists can transmogrify into animals?
• Which cities/towns did Kalu have more influence than the others?
• How many people were in his rank and level of power before his conversion?
• Can the queen of the coast control Christians?

To the last two questions he answered that there were 17 occultists on his equal rank worldwide, but he happened to be the youngest and the most aggressive.

And he said it’s impossible for the queen of the river to control Christians but as for others who are not born again, they are like toys in her hands.

Recollections of Born Twice: From Demonism to Christianity (IV)

Chapter 10: The Underground Temple

With the temple he acquired, new responsibilities were given to Cashnaya. Part of this included inviting seekers of power from the religious, political, social and others from various walks of life to visit his temple.

He was also given a pamphlet on laws guiding power usage. One of them is that a member of the kingdom of darkness is not to use his powers against another member, unless one is erring.

One day, one of Kalu’s agents reported a religious gathering near his temple to him. He viewed the gathering through the occult screen in his temple and found it to be a church with all its members naked except for one man who had a bright ring around his head.

When a supernatural “ring” is seen around the head of an individual (signifying the presence of the Holy Spirit) it means he’s born again. Some people’s rings are dim while others are bright.

From his findings, the man with a “bright ring” wasn’t a member of that church, he only began attending because he couldn’t find his own denomination as he recently relocated. Cashnaya decided to finish him off.

He monitored the gathering on a Sunday and as the church service ended, he astral projected there. As the worshippers were coming out to the main road, including this Christian man, the Roman Catholic patrols were trying to controll the traffic of car users.

Kalu noticed a man with a car coming from an opposite end as this Christian was about crossing the road, so he quickly took over the body of the driver and controlled his leg, shifting it from the brake to the accelerator making the car go on full speed. He also made the car doors open so that even if the bonnet missed him, the car doors ajar won’t.

The car crushed many people and Kalu rejoiced in his temple. Later when he watched a playback of the entire scenario on his screen, he realized that the Christian man was actually spared. Not a single thing touched him. In fact, he learnt that he later helped them clear the corpses. Kalu’s joy quickly melted into disappointment, but he let it slide to focus on other duties.

Kalu then took the second egg from India and walked into a forest as instructed and chanted an incantation and smashed the egg on a floor.

Immediately, there was a quake which splitted the ground open and he was taken down in it. He descended and appeared before a powerful demon who asked him who he was and what he was doing in his kingdom in an unfriendly tone.

He introduced himself as a son of the Queen of the Coast, on a mission to gain more wisdom and power and also told him of his predicament. The demon said there was really nothing spectacular to explore in his kingdom but unlike during his first tour, he was free to ask questions which he would answer.

He saw some earthly birds flying around and he asked the demon what were they doing there. The demon told him that these birds were the ones responsible for helping them to plant supernatural trees (such as Tossy tree) on earth.

He also saw a deserted football field with many men and women chained to it. From the looks on their faces, they haven’t eaten for months. He asked about this from the demon and he told him that these were people whose souls were given to them in exchange by earthly donors who wanted to alter their lives through material wealth, good health or power. He said no matter how famished they look, they won’t die.

He explained to Kalu that pacts are made with the kingdom to give human lives in exchange for power. He mentioned the name of a certain prophet in Amaogudu, whose name Kalu had forgotten, who made a covenant with him that he would regularly supply two human heads for his power to manifest in his church.

The transaction went smoothly for years until the past few years when his debt accrued. After warnings, this demon and his army stormed into his church in fury, demanding their dues – causing a serious erosion to occur on the road leading to his religious structure. To the physical realm, the erosion was presumed to be caused by a massive flood, leading to much public complaint.

The man managed to appease the demon, but he admitted he will still end his life when he’s tired of his game. Kalu inquired how the erosion they supernaturally caused would be repaired, the demon said they have their own recognized construction company that will take up the task.

The demon also showed him on a large screen, pictures of many wealthy people, scientists, philosophers and elites. The demon told him that some of these people were dead while the others were still alive but all of them have been in partnership with the realms of darkness.

Some of these people, Kalu said he knew and were still alive as of the time of his writing. The demon said if any of these people should violate any of the laws guiding the kingdom of darkness, they will be subjected to the unchangeable penalty of death.

After spending three days with demon he realized that what he said about their own construction company repairing the damaged road was indeed true.

Chapter 11: My Last Battles as a Satanist

The queen arranged for Cashnaya to embark on a tour to all the fourteen kingdoms of darkness in order to incorporate all the wisdom and power needed in his operations. This journey took an entire month and after the visits, he was equipped with more power and knowledge.

The notice reached him that a massive crusade was to be held in Abiriba, his own base, tagged The Greater Abiriba for Christ 1989. This was to be his assignment.

Kalu first went out in his spirit body to one of his agents, a market woman. He appeared to her in the shop and instructed her to mobilize other agents to be present at the crusade venue.

He then drew up an agenda for a meeting with Satan and the queen of the coast on this matter. When Satan appeared at the meeting with the queen, he asked what his agenda was about and Kalu read it out without hesitation, “How to thwart the Greater Abiriba for Christ crusade.”

As he mentioned the word “Christ” they all could hear peals of thunder, a roar of fire and an invisible power forced the three of them to bow their heads to the ground for about 30 minutes. When they got up from the ground, Satan warned Cashnaya furiously to never use that name again in his presence ever again.

Satan began to boast that he had captured the town of Abiriba for as long as her existence. Cashnaya asked him which weapons he utilized and Satan said they were: pride, hatred, love of money and cultural activities. Hence, that upcoming crusade was an affront that must be resisted.

Abiriba, Abia State.

He ordered Cashnaya to mobilize all the agents under him into action and frustrate the crusade. After boasting some more, Satan eventually disappeared.

When he was gone, the queen walked up to him with a warm hug and that was precisely what was on his mind. The queen always seems to know whenever he feels like having sex.

While they were both gleefully having sex about 4:30 am (she would transform into a girl of about his age whenever they had intercourse), they were suddenly hushed into panicking as the whole place began to quake.

They disengaged and the queen changed back into her real form. At her command, their screen showed where the rumblings were coming from: a Christian man was preaching the gospel around Ameke Square (apparently, whenever the gospel of Jesus Christ is being proclaimed in the physical world, it causes ripples in the realm of darkness).

The queen chanted an incantation and a bottle appeared in her hand. She rubbed its gummy/sticky contents on Kalu’s face and commanded him to go after that preacher and stare at him face-face with that concoction and the demons would melt the preacher into natural water.

Ameke Square, Abiriba.

Kalu woke up physically, and left the house immediately. His family knew he had a habit of visiting the restroom every morning so they didn’t think it was unusual for him to go out at that time. After walking hurriedly, he located the preacher from a distance, but as he was about catching up with him, suddenly, two angels appeared and were walking towards him.

It soon got to a point that the angels were close to him and wouldn’t allow him go any further. He chanted an incantation against them, it didn’t work. He had been given a “special” ring when he visited Satan’s kingdom; the ring is called “the good, the bad, the destroyer.”

Satan told him that the demons attached to the ring would make a bad situation become “good”; turn a good thing into bad and would also destroy a bad thing/person. He used this ring against the angels as he had been instructed, but it didn’t faze them.

He couldn’t even stand in their presence as their countenance was like the sun in its zenith, so he began to stagger like a drunk. The two angels captured him and took him to a place in the woods where they had him tied down to a tree by bright white cords they produced from their bodies. They then left their two swords by each of his ear and left the place. The sword began to sing in a most melodious voice he had ever heard and later began to preach the gospel to him.

Though he found the message somewhat tormenting (each time the name of Jesus was mentioned, he would feel burns on his body) one line from the messages stuck with him: “I will make you fishers of men if you will follow Me.” Later, the angels returned, picked up their swords without saying a word to him and untied him.

By then, the day had dawned, he chanted an incantation to disappear but it didn’t work. He repeated it, still didn’t work. He then recalled when he visited Satan’s kingdom, he taught him that whenever he got defeated, he should walk two poles away from the site and repeat the incantation. He did that and he was taken to his room, and being fatigued, he slept off on the bed while his spirit travelled to his temple.

When Kalu’s mother returned from the market and found him lying on the bed, she got the shock of her life. She wanted to know how he entered into the room.

Kalu managed to mumble some excuse about the padlock not being properly locked, but his mother knew that was impossible. This padlock was brought by his brother from Cotonou and wouldn’t lock unless the key was removed from it.

He couldn’t seem to convince his mother of his fib, and that raised her suspicion. She confided in one of her friends who suggested they visit a witchdoctor. Even though Kalu’s mother wasn’t a Christian, she didn’t like anything involving consulting a fetish priest. But her friend urged her to go find out the spiritual identity of her son.

They visited a rather popular dibia whose name Kalu declined from revealing. He gave them a stick with which they were to touch the body of the person whose spiritual identity they wanted to know. This his mother did that night at about 2am. He was watching this with his spiritual eyes.

When they took the stick back to the dibia, he asked for the name of the person they were inquiring about and the moment his name was mentioned, there was pandemonium in the shrine. All his deities began to wail loudly in his ears and when they stopped, the heads of their images began to break to the ground. His powers began to crumble.

The dibia began to act insane, yanked off the wrapper from each of the woman (luckily they wore two) demanded for their money and sent them away bewildered.

After this incident, Kalu invoked Satan to his temple and consulted him with incantations. He was pleased. He charged him to fight like a soldier and deploy all the powers at his disposal in his assignment.

Recollections of Born Twice: From Demonism to Christianity (I)

This was quite similar to its cover picture

I started reading fluently from the age of 8, and having come from a family background which cherished books, by the time I was in my teens, I had read several books that were light years beyond my age and exposure.

When I was 10, there was this book I saw mother was always reading. It had the picture of a bolt of lightning breaking the chains binding on two human hands. It even had the picture of its author at its back cover. It struck me at that age that it must be a true life story.

One night, I saw the book in her drawer and I began to read it too. That book was Born Twice: From Demonism to Christianity by Kalu Abosi.

Having referenced this book in two articles (one/ two), I’ve received emails from Christians in different countries, asking where they could purchase the book or loan a copy.

Right now, I can’t place my finger on where my personal copy is. If I remember correctly, the last time I had it in my possession was in 2006. I think I loaned it to a friend at the time, who unfortunately didn’t return it to me.

The book itself was published circa 1994 and is now out of print. However, having read and narrated it to friends several times for a period of nine years, I still remember much of its content and I intend to narrate it here as well in a series of posts.

There are some testimonies of “former Satanists” that are not up to par. The authors themselves have been found to be folks of a dubious nature – quacks and sensationalists who merely wanted to make a name for themselves. But Brother Kalu’s testimony – which isn’t that common – has passed the tests.

Some years ago, I came across a Facebook post by one Pastor Allwell Orji, who describes himself on his Facebook page as a Servant in God’s Vineyard, who revealed that he personally knew the author (Kalu Abosi) and was also mentored by the same cleric at whose crusade he was converted: Rev. Uma Ukpai.

He revealed that he was in fact, the first person with whom Kalu shared his powerful testimony as an ex-Satanist at the time, but he was too young in the faith to stomach the depth of information.

Now, I believe the content of that book posed a great danger to Satan’s kingdom and he and his forces have tried to stamp it out of public memory. This, I will try to undo, by recollecting it as much as my memory allows. (Note: some names and geographical features of certain places mentioned in the book have changed over the years).

For those who still have the book handy, I welcome your corrections, feedback and additional inputs, particularly in areas where my memory lapsed in coherence and detail.

The book consisted of 12 or 13 chapters. I don’t remember all the titles of each chapter, but I’ve improvised with my own titles in areas that I couldn’t recall. The first few pages were the foreword by a pastor and words of Scripture (germane Bible passages were interspersed all through the book).

***

Chapter 1: My First Family

It started with Kalu telling the reader about his previous family. His parents were fishers and notorious witch doctors in Cameroon. They lived at Nakke Quarters, Kumba, Cameroon. His name was Arena (he was apparently a teenager) and had two younger sisters, Martha and Bayo.

One day, during their fishing trips, his parents were involved in a boat accident and they both drowned in the lake. His sisters too were later swept away during a flood.

He attended school for a while but his hope of going to school was dashed when a strange wind blew away his school uniform and without having a way to fend for himself, he pleaded with one of his father’s friends to allow him go with them in their fishing trips. One day, while they were sailing, a storm came up against their boat and they were all hurled into the lake.

Chapter 2: My Capture into the Spirit World.

After he fell into the water body, in a twinkle of an eye, he realized that rather than being drowned, he found himself descending before a splendid palace in an unknown location. The edifice and its surroundings were beautiful but the place was quiet.

He walked in through the entrance in trepidation, and in one of the halls, he saw two young ladies who spoke to him in a foreign language. They knew he was a stranger, given his attire, and as he later learned through interrogative gesticulation, they were asking him who he was, who brought him there and where he came from.

When their tauntings became unbearable, he became afraid and began to cry as they badgered him with questions in their language. The ladies began to make a jest of him until a glamorous woman appeared with two ladies (a lady on either side) making them all five.

At the appearance of this beautiful woman with a commanding presence, they abruptly stopped laughing and bowed to her, gesturing what he later got to know was obeisance.

The woman looked at Arena, and introduced herself as the Queen of the Coast and the ladies were her agents. She welcomed him to her kingdom and told them he was her special guest whom she had been expecting for quite some time. She told him to feel at home as he would be staying with her for now.

She explained to him that his late parents were her servants, but they were too stubborn and even though she gave them a long rope to fulfill their obligations, they had become elephant-skinned and she had to eliminate them. She asked him if he would like to see his parents and sisters, he answered in the affirmative.

She took him to a spacious room with its floor well tiled and very neat. She went to a cupboard and opened its part showing him his parents’ decapitated heads. He was struck with grief. She went over to open another cupboard and he showed him his sisters’ heads, all looking freshly preserved.

Arena broke down and cried and confronted the queen about how wicked she must be for killing his family. She grew annoyed and threatened to kill him over his emotional outbursts if he would not cooperate with her. She told him that she spared only him because she loved and he was going to continue from where his parents had stopped.

She ordered her male agents to take off his fishing rags and give him a new set of shirt and trouser to wear (he didn’t realize it at the time, but this was his first initiation). According to him, the design of their shirts and trousers was different from that used here on earth.

The queen took him to a “spiritual operation” room where he saw assorted candles in various shapes, colours and forms. One of the candles was shaped like a man and had the wick on its head where it’s lit.

The queen took him to another room that looked high-tech. The computers there were like big white refrigerators. The queen smiled at him and told him to open up one of the computers, but he was too afraid to do so for that was his first brush with technology.

The queen simply moved her hand up and the screencover of the computer opened, showing the data stored in the system. On it, he could see the bodily materials removed from his parents and sisters which had been stored in it including the percentage composition of these materials.

The Queen explained to him that there are 33,000 demi-gods in her kingdom and she would see to it that he visits their chief very soon. She also told him about their president, Satan, but he wasn’t yet qualified to meet him, as it is, but when that time comes for him to go back to the earth plane, she will make the meeting possible.

Chapter 3: The Market in the Beast

Arena, as a neophyte, was told he would be put through training sessions in the palace. These were series of lectures undertook by different appointed teachers each day who would leave for him pamphlets to study before the next study. The lectures were delivered according to topics and dealt with his purpose and assignments. At this point, they attuned him to their language.

He said some of what he was taught were quite inexplicable, but he had lots of questions during the lectures: how possible it would be for him to return to earth with his face without his people being afraid, who would be his parents now since the former were dead, where in the world would he return to etc.

His lecturers told him answers will be provided when the time comes. He asked them how many years he had spent in their kingdom as of that time, he was told nine years. Apparently, to him, it looked like few months.

The meal served there were flesh and blood which he couldn’t partake of, so an agent was assigned to supply him with assorted fruit while he waited behind the door each day. Later on, he was introduced to a tree outside, at a location. This tree had all kinds of fruit growing on it, so whenever he was hungry he would go out there to feed himself.

One day, the Queen called him into her private chamber and told him about the benefits of eating their meal: human flesh and blood. She told him there was nothing really bad in it, and that he actually needs it, if he was going to succeed in his assignment. Arena said he might try the flesh if it was cooked, but the queen blatantly told him that nothing will be cooked there.

He promised to try it and they locked him in a room containing about five refrigerators containing human flesh. After a length of time, he finally decided to try the ones that were not too fresh in there; those kept there for a while. When he tasted it, he felt like spitting it out because it was tasteless.

But from that day onwards, he couldn’t explain the mystery, he began to relish flesh and blood so much that he was often the first to finish his meal whenever it was served.

When the queen opened the door to the room that day and found out he had tried it for the first time, she was so excited that she arranged for him to be taken on an outing.

An agent drove the car (which he said looked like the exotic computerized cars seen in some cartoons or sci-fi movies) and the queen took him on a tour of the entire kingdom. The houses and roads there were very beautiful and neat, but there were no people in the streets.

Arena was also taken by the queen of the coast to visit the chief of the demi-gods who then arrayed him with powers. After this, the queen sent for him one day for a special outing and they took another hi-tech car to a location in that realm.

They alighted at a location; there was a swimming pool there containing a small quantity of water, about 17 buckets. She chanted a long incantation and the floor of the pool opened up and an enormous beast arose from its depth.

It stood menacingly looking at both of them, then the queen spoke to it in an unknown language which the beast understood. The queen turned towards Arena, told him not to fear and promise to come pick him up after his adventure.

As she turned to leave, Arena, wanted to flee with her away from the beast, but to his utter surprise, he found himself right in it big paws, like a grain of sand, it examined him carefully and then threw him right into his mouth.

He saw himself descending to see an extensive supermarket that outmatched the world’s biggest store, in size and beauty. They had sections and each one contained all the materials or accessories used here on earth, from toys to computers to musical instruments to beauty products to occult books.

On the shelves holding these demonic books he found it clearly written that these are books used by magick and occult practitioners in the physical world. He also visited the section having human flesh and blood and he ate and drank to his fill and continued in his tour.

Eventually, the queen showed up at the tail end of the gigantic store and took him home in the car. The queen told him that his assignment would be to transport all those goods he saw in the beast to the earth plane by all means possible.

Shortly after this experience, he was sitting with the queen in her chamber one day and the place was filled with an array of glamorous ladies who were her agents with messages to deliver to her on their assignments. Each of them would first pay the queen an obeisance and then offer to Arena another type of obeisance to which he responded.

When he asked the queen why her agents were paying him obeisance, she told him that his power and exposure in her kingdom far exceeds theirs. This made him glad.

Chapter 4: My First Meeting with Satan

The queen called Arena to a room one day and told him that before he would be released back to the world, he must have a meeting with Satan, the president. But he’s not yet spiritually qualified to stand in his presence, so she will have to stand with him.

With that, she used her powers to divide herself into two and Arena also into two and at her command, their two halves stuck together, such that he wasn’t standing alone, for the queen was standing with him and vice versa. Then she called and Lucifer appeared.

Satan called him by his name, Arena, in its proper dialect and he saw his prowess. He told him he has been briefed and he knows he is capable of working assiduously for the kingdom. To that end, he’s first going to be given a spiritual name. He was blindfolded and he given a metal box of alphabets to pick from.

He later realized that Satan and the queen were collecting the letters from him and arranging them on the board in the wall. When he was done, his blindfold was removed and he saw the name Cashnaya Daska on the board. That was his working name.

Satan told him he would be reborn to the world like a baby in order to fulfill his assignment and he will choose his mother-to-be from the spirit world. At his command, the large screen in the room (which we now call plasma or LED TV) began to show faces of many women from across nationalities.

As the pictures of these women rolled on the screen, Arena wasn’t interested in them because the women were in no way compared to the glamorous ladies he had seen in the queen’s kingdom. The queen seem to understand this, and at her command, the screen showed the pictures of three women, one light-skinned woman and the other two, dark-skinned.

The queen began to tell him the story of each of the women and he came to love the light-skinned woman. The queen told her she’s a native of Abiriba in Imo State (now Abia State) Nigeria and married to a man from a nearby town in the state. The queen said that this woman had five children but she was responsible for the death of her first, third and fifth children.

The couple both reside in Cameroon but the queen said they want them to relocate to Nigeria as this was where they marked out for his assignment.

Satan also showed him on the screen, pictures of wealthy men and women, influential world figures, scientists, politicians and religious leaders across board who serve them and are working in their assignments. He eventually disappeared. The queen then extricated her half self from Arena and returned his other half to him.

They monitored his parents-to-be from the screen in the spirit world for two consecutive days. The queen first kept his mother-to-be sleepless with thoughts of her deceased children, and manipulated her thoughts to supernaturally inquire the cause of their deaths.

The queen stirred up one of her friends to visit her the next morning, and after pouring out her heart to her, she opted to take her to a diviner to find out what lies beneath. She took her to the very one that the queen had selected – one of her agents.

The man inquired from his deities, but he had already been given a script by the queen. Instead of revealing the causes of her children’s death, he promised her that she will give birth to another child, a boy, who would bring prosperity to the family and erase her sorrow.

He gave her detailed instructions on what to use before her next sexual relations with her husband. She wanted to offer him some money in appreciation, but the queen signalled to him not to accept it and he refused it. Then they left.

When it was time to send him into the world, Cashnaya was summoned to the queen’s private chamber and she told him it’s time for him to go into the world. She promised to enrich his would-be parents and be with him at all times. She affixed different rings in his fingers and toes; some of these rings, she tightened them like they were nuts.

She tied her hands and legs with a kind of cord. She opened a drawer and brought out a bottle and emptied its content on his palm. Then she began to chant an incantation. It was a long one. After she was done, the substance in his hand began to melt like ice and he became a bit unconscious and soon, he realized he too was melting and he continued melting till he melted into his mother’s womb.

Now in her womb, he didn’t eat for three days because his mother’s food was different from his (human flesh and blood). The queen observed this, so she began spiritually feeding him with a strange food that was neither flesh not blood and this continued till he was born.

When he was born, he had been told some events would happen and he laughed in his cot in anticipation. A nurse that was about to pick him up for circumcision was menstruating and she fell down on her face, unable to get up in the hall. Another nurse who wasn’t having her menses was called and she succeeded.

At this point, the author emphasized that the reason the queen of the coast had such a leeway in his family was because they weren’t Christians. Had it been there was a praying Christian in his family, it would have thwarted her plans.

Chapter 5: Mission Commissioned

Shortly after he was born, Kalu’s father began to prosper in his business; he won some contracts, built a primary school, had farms, built a Presbyterian church and was made an elder in the church inspite of his ignorance of the position. His family became wealthy as the queen had promised.

Kalu and his friends would usually go into the farms and bushes some evenings to look for snails. Some of the boys were caught stealing the other boys’ snails, so each boy decided to search for the snails on his own. While Kalu was looking for snails in the woods one evening, the queen appeared and called out to him from one of the trees.

She was gorgeously dressed and held a purse in her hand. She told him that his father had infuriated her by building a church for the community and she was going to retrieve all her riches from him. She flashed the content of the purse to him and dropped it in his snail sack. She told him that the money would be for his personal upkeep and was to be securely hidden from others.

She disappeared, and when Kalu looked into the sack, he realized the snails he picked had become bigger in size when the purse touched them. His friends were all amazed at how and where he found such big snails and tried to peep into his sack, but when they saw that Kalu wasn’t releasing his hold on the sack and was too serious, they let him go.

He hid the purse by burying it somewhere around the house. On another occasion when he was about to have a bath, the queen appeared to him again, this time standing on a cloud, and expressed her disappointment with his father’s decision to build a church with her wealth. She promised to withdraw her riches and warned Kalu never to reveal her plans to anyone or he will lose his life. Then she disappeared.

Soon enough, his father began to incur losses on his farm; his business was no longer prospering, and he eventually fell victim to swindlers which made him lose all his savings. From there, he began to start again from the scratch.
