He received these divine visitations and revelations while undergoing his course on veterinary medicine in University of Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria.

Chapter 1 – My First Transit to Heaven
“I say the truth in Christ; I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost.”
1 Corinthians 1:3
“Grace be unto you (that read this testimony) and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ.”
“Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophesy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is short.”
Retreat Preparation and Expectation
The visit of the Lord Jesus Christ to me was during the Deeper Life National Easter Retreat 2003, held in Takum Region, Taraba State. The Retreat had the caption: EXPERIENCING THE HOLY SPIRIT. When we saw this caption, some brethren and I decided to seek the face of the Lord so that something definite would happen during the Retreat. We embarked on prayer and fasting and night vigils. At this time I was in the neighbouring Wukari Region, thinking to attend the Easter Retreat there. But the Region Overseer of Takum Region visited Wukari and asked me to come over to Takum to attend the Easter Retreat there in order to assist the Region youth coordinator in the youth camp. I obeyed him and went to Takum for the Retreat. There in Takum we still gave ourselves to prayer. Our expectation was high. We were expecting the visitation of the Holy Spirit. The Retreat began on Wednesday 23rd and ended on Sunday 27th April, 2003.
The Inner Voice of the Lord
There was rainfall the first night of the Retreat. The tempo in the camp was low. The revival we expected was not seen, even to the second day. I called the attention of the youth coordinator on the third day, being Friday, and expressed my feelings to him. I said, “This is now the third day of the Retreat and we seem not to have seen any special move of God.” He assured me that from that Friday night we would see the special move of God. We both comforted ourselves. That Friday night after retiring from the camp I went to the hostel to rest. I decided to do my quiet time that night against the following morning because I feared I might become so busy that I might not find ample time for it. Besides I did not want to rush it the following morning. I read Isaiah 59. When I came to verse 20 where it says:
“And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord.”
The Lord spoke to me through a still small voice in my heart saying,
“I will be visiting your camp tomorrow.”
The impression I received was so deep. I though that it was just a thought that dashed at my heart. I lay down and slept after my quiet time. I woke up as early as between 4.00 to 5.00 a.m. the following morning to prepare. I still had time to pray and to seek the face of the Lord. I got the impression of Christ’s visit to our camp that day so fresh and deeper than that of the previous night. He told me once again through the inner voice that He would be visiting our Retreat Camp. I worshipped the Lord. Then I took my bath and went to the tent of meeting.
