A pastor in Nigeria has urged his followers to pay him more than Ksh210, 000 to unleash prayers to help Super Eagles secure a World Cup win.
Earlier this week, self-styled prophet Tommy Yisa Aika said that Nigeria lost their opening match to Croatia because God was punishing them for hiring a white coach.
But he now says Nigeria can salvage the situation and become the first African team to win the World Cup — as long as fans give him Ksh210, 000.
He told a Nigerian TV station: “What I need is 750, 000 Naira (Ksh210, 000) to get some spiritual materials and also to give my prayer warriors a token.”
Nigeria plays Argentina at 9pm on Tuesday, June 26.
