Lagos state seeks 50 virgins to avert flooding


Spiritualist who ply their trade in Lagos have warned that the state will experience another deluge of torrential rainfall and flooding of Biblical proportions unless 50 virgins can be found for a ritual to appease the gods.

The virgins, who must be native Lagosians, be old enough to marry and be very beautiful, will dance naked to Bar Beach in the dead of night, singing and pleading with Yemoja to please spare the state and its people.

The council of Lagos State Spiritualist has notified the state government of the need and urgency to carry out the ritual and as a result the government has warned citizens to brace up for more heavy downpour and runaway flooding starting from next week.
