These ungodly people disguised as beggars seeking alms from unsuspecting carnival attendees, to explainable steal their sight and vital body organs.
One of such incidences is said to have occurred last Saturday, when a woman supposedly gave alms to a beggar who approached her in the front passenger’s seat of her husband’s car, only for her to discover that she couldn’t see with her eyes anymore.
She immediately raised alarm which attracted sympathizers including policemen and together with her husband, they apprehended the said beggar. After much prodding, the beggar reportedly revealed that he was part of a larger cartel of beggars who were at the carnival with instructions to carry out ritual acts.
When asked what could be done to reinstate the woman’s sight, the beggar reportedly gave the woman back her money and asked her to rub same on her eyes and voila! Her sight was instantly restored.
Indeed, we live in a very weird and diabolic society. No wonder some people would rather make donations to motherless babies and other homes for less privileged than give alms.

A leading member of the UK Independence Party has likened allowing gay people to adopt to ‘child abuse’.
Winston McKenzie, the party’s culture spokesman, said same sex couples should be banned from the adoption process, because it breached the human rights of children.
His remarks were condemned by campaigners and the party moved to distance itself from his comments.
Mr McKenzie, a former boxer, said: ‘To say to a child, “I am having you adopted by two men who kiss regularly but don’t worry about it” – that is abuse.
‘It is a violation of a child’s human rights because that child has no opportunity to grow up under normal circumstances’ he said.
Mr McKenzie is a Christian and said gay adoption was against his religious beliefs.

The Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Welfare, Mrs. Mofolake Adegboyega said that stringent penalty like cutting off of their “third leg’’ will be appropriate for their offence.
She said the Violence Against Women & Children Bill was aimed at cutting down cases of molestation and abuse in Osun State.

Mrs Adegboyega who cited Saudi Arabia, where legs of culprits are cut off for serious offences, said that it wouldn’t be too much to impose harsh punishment for tough crime.
