What I Saw In Heaven… —Prophet Who Came To Life 4days After Being Declared Dead

Prophet Shotunde Kayode also known as Oku ojo kerin, is the founder of Uncommon Favour Evangelical Ministry, Ibadan, Oyo State. The cleric, who claimed to have come back to life four days after being declared dead in an auto accident, speaks with OLAIDE SOKOYA.

My life before an auto accident

I was a naughty boy in those days. I later joined the Nigerian Army, so I’m a pensioner of the military. But, I became a nuisance after leaving the army when I joined a political party and functioned as thug in my hometown, Adeokuta, Ogun State. I have worked with so many politicians, who used many of us then the way they would not use their own children. They used me for different odd jobs but thank God that today, I’m in the vineyard of Christ.

My journey into ministry


I received my calling into the ministry from the land of the dead. I knew nothing about Christ as I was a free thinker. My calling was just coincidental. But, I know that what the Lord has ordained will definitely come to pass. I was involved in a vehicle accident alongside 17 other passengers. I lost my life in the accident. So my body was embalmed with the other 17 victims. It was on the third day and my corpse was dumped in the mortuary that some concerned persons used my phone to call my relations. The phone had rang in the crashed vehicle. Immediately they were informed about my death, my relations rushed to the mortuary to verify my corpse. They saw it lying on the ground, among others. A mortuary is not a place for people in a state of coma or seeking treatment. It is a journey without end. And on the fourth day, the Lord asked me to return to the world. It was the day I heard the voice of God: “Go to the world and release the people that are in bondage, you’re the chosen one.” That was the voice I heard. I sneezed and woke up exactly when my people were about to lower me into the grave in the cemetery. Everybody took to their heels, including my younger brother, who is also a soldier in the Nigerian Army, Jide Shotunde. My body was left at the graveside in the cemetery. The wake-keep for me had taken place in Abeokuta, my home town. The candle night had also been conducted, at Sabo, to be precise.
