Over the years these incidents keep propping up. While some say the so called ‘transformers’ are just mentally disturbed people, others insist that these set of people are truly witches whose cups are full. A young woman in Ojokoro, Ijaiye, at the outskirts of Lagos is said to have been on her way back from her ‘witch’ meeting when she was struck by a ‘powerful’ force. When she landed on the ground in her witch bird form, the combined impact of hitting the ground and daylight caused her to transform into a human being. According to Moji Delano, the incident which was witnessed by one of its readers happened around 5:30-6am yesterday morning. The source narrated what he saw; “I was driving home this morning along Agbado-Ijaiye road when I suddenly heard people screaming in Yoruba ” the bird has turned into a woman, the bird has transformed into a human being.” I parked some meters away and walk towards the scene-a gutter opposite LADO filling station-where an angry crowd was slowing gathering. Two eye witnesses present in the crowd who raised alarm said they were passing by when a bird suddenly fell into the gutter and then suddenly transformed into a young woman. “ Continuing, he said: “At some point a man joins the woman in the gutter whispering into her ears. The crowd started asking questions as to his relationship with the alleged bird-Lady but the guy quickly disassociated himself from her.
Nobody knows who the guy is but he appears to be someone who understands the supernatural and was trying to communicate with her because the crowd didn’t understand the dialect of Yoruba language she was speaking. However when he saw the the crowd was getting irate, he disassociated himself from the lady.” “She spoke in a Yoruba dialect people present didn’t understand. But what some people tried to make out from what she told them was that she was instructed to go and get something during a witchcraft meeting and she complained that it was dangerous because it easy almost morning. However she said they insisted and while flying a powerful force struck her and she found herself in the gutter.” The eyewitness also told MDB that at about time he decided to leave the scene, the angry mob had started hitting her and beating her with sticks and he tried to dissuade the crowd from doing so but they wouldn’t listen.
