10/06/2016 Nigeria (Pulse) - Years after getting a God-given mandate, through a vision, Bishop Oliver Dashe Doeme is predicting the end of Boko Haram in Nigeria.

In 2014, Bishop Oliver Dashe Doeme of Maiduguri had a divine encounter with Jesus Christ. In this vision, he was told to call for the use the rosary in Nigeria.

According to him, Jesus told that the rosary would eventually drive the dreaded Islamist sect, Boko Haram, out of the country.

“Towards the end of last year I was in my chapel before the Blessed Sacrament… praying the rosary, and then suddenly the Lord appeared", he said.

Narrating the experience, he said Jesus handed him a rosary, which turned into a sword, adding that the son of God also said, “Boko Haram is gone", three times.

As soon as I received the sword, it turned into a rosary. I didn’t need any prophet to give me the explanation. It was clear that with the rosary we would be able to expel Boko Haram", he said.
