A strange incident involving a Nigerian girl seemingly possessed by 'dark forces' is merely the latest case for a college that apparently has quite the 'genie problem.' According to a local media report, a math class at the Usmanu Danfodiyo University in the city of Sokoto came to a screeching halt this week when a young woman began convulsing and speaking in tongues. Convinced that she had become possessed, school officials brought her out into a hallway where another student prayed over her until the odd episode came to an end.
Why onlookers would leap to such a fantastic conclusion comes to light later in the coverage of the girl's plight. "It is a common belief among students that there are genies around the school," the story says, revealing that several attendees at the school are said to have fallen victim to the sinister entities in the past. Remarkably, a handful of such unfortunate individuals actually shared their story, suggesting that, indeed, fears of the genies at the school are real.
