It has been heard over the years of the visit of some creatures that look like humans from outer space to the earth. Also, many have sworn to have caught glimpses of these creatures. Now beat this… they have visited some parts of Nigeria. Gabriel ewepu writes on this myth or reality.
Ibrahim Shuaibu, a 14-year-old boy living in one of the villages in Northern Nigeria. One late evening, decided to go and check his fishing trap which he set earlier in the day. On reaching the small river, he suddenly noticed that the setting sun was getting closer to his location as he waded in the water feeling for his trap. But within seconds it dawned on him that what he initially perceived to be the sun was rapidly coming almost parallel to him, and this greatly unsettled his young mind. The object was glowing and circular, and smoothly glided like a huge incandescent saucer.
Shuaibu expectedly panicked and began to run out of the shallow river, and the hovering object slowly glided after him in pursuit. It was after he ran out of the banks of the river and to the edge of the small mountain that he breathlessly turned to look back at the strange object; he then saw that the huge saucer had stopped at the edge of the river, and was very calm and steady as if some people were inside the object watching him intently.
