After months of being in the den of their kidnappers, Pastor Tunde Bakare, founder of Latter Rain Assembly, has prophesied that the Chibok girls would return to their parents in 2015.

The cleric, who doubles as initiator of the Save Nigeria Group (SNG), gave this prediction during the church's crossover service into the New Year held on Wednesday.

Bakare told his congregation that Nigeria would enjoy extraordinary grace from God in 2015, which would see the return of the missing girls.

According to him, “The Chibok girls will be returned this year; some people will say 'they are just using religion to deceive themselves. How will the girls be rescued?' You will see. I didn't say it, it is what God said and I believe it.”

Backing his words with various Bible verses, the man of God also foresaw a new Nigeria which would bring joy to the citizens.

He however, urged Nigerians to stop tribal discrimination, which he described as bad for the country.

“Whether you are from the East or from the West or from the North or the South, you will experience joy in 2015. Other nations will say 'how did they do it.' It will be indescribable joy. The nations of the earth will testify. I bring good tidings of joy to every part of the nation but I am not going to deceive you, we are going to go through some shakings.

“Let us not desecrate ourselves, saying this one is Ngbati-ngbati or that one is Aboki and things like that. These are terrible things. Some people will say 'if you see a snake on one side and a Fulani man on another, first kill the Fulani. There is also a terrible joke some people tell about the Igbos.

“I asked what I would do with all the table water that was brought and they said 'you would need it'. The water from the borehole dug deep into the ground was black and when I asked how I would get water to wash and do other things, they said that was why they gave me all the table water”, he said.
