Nollywood actress Liz Anjorin has taken to social media to reveal why she converted from Christianity to Islam. It could be recalled that the screen diva converted about five years ago.
Amidst speculations that Anjorin converted to Islam because of a man, the actress has come out to reveal that the attitude of pastors when her mother died made change her mind.
According to her, her mother was born into a Muslim home but married a Christian man, however, when poverty struck and they became homeless, they sought refuge in churches, sleeping in different churches at night.
The lengthy post which was divided into three parts disclosed how, Anjorin received a phone call that her mother is no more. She narrated how she travelled home to give her mother a befitting burial but her corpse was rejected despite being a devoted Christian.
Her post reads: “On getting there, I met Mama sleeping all by herself. Her whole body has changed. I called her several times, mama did not answer. I saw some notes under her pillow. My mother has been taking notes of all the things I’ve been sending to her and how I’ve been taking care of her since when I was young up till that very day. She wrote something at the end of one the notes. Anytime she dies, nobody should take her to the Mortuary. @ iya enny we both saw the note and I could remember right from when I was a teenager, my mother used to tell me that she does not want her dead body to be taking to the Mortuary when she dies. She doesn’t like the Mortuary at all. When I remembered and I realised that strike is starting the next day, Walahi I was cold and scared. I immediately stood up and said please is there any nurse to inject Mama? Their response was that, all the nurses have all gone home due to the strike that is going to hold tomorrow. Is there any Mortuary around this area? Ahhh, ani gbogbo won ti losi ile won. Then I realised that baba nla set up le leyi o.....She meant what she said that she doesn’t like Mortuary. I stood up and said to everybody. I will bury my mother tonight. Some people were murmuring. Where is the money? How? Of course, my mother was born into a Muslim family but we sleep in church several times during the struggles so we are automatically Christians. While on the sick bed, she still attends church service. So, please call me Mama Pastor. They called almost 10 Pastors, once they look at Mama’s face. She is not our member. I was mad at everything and it almost turned into riot. Someone confronted one of the Pastor.
You are a bad person. You are always fond of collecting all the money her daughter used to send to Mama. I remember the day this Mama fell down on her way to your Church. I don’t know how she sneaked into the Church because she had stroke". I was very mad. Someone took me to 3 Churches that night, they all said she can’t be buried in their cemetery because she is not a member of their church. We approached one God sent Pastor. He said okay he will help out and even the coffin seller tripled his money. He brought the coffin around 2am. Mama was buried around 5am in the morning. But it was an Alfa that did the prayer for my mum. I got a call from someone that told me this shocking story. He said madam all these pastors were called to buy land to use as a cemetery, they all refused. Some of the big churches you see around here don’t have a suitable and good environment to bury their members and the few ones that have cemetery have vowed not to allow anybody except their Church members. He told me many top secrets and I was shocked...my thought was how can we treat ourselves in such a cruel way....religion faaa..Oluwa ma ku suru oo..Then a guy said if Mama were to be a Muslim, they would have buried her before I arrive. It was that day I realised....that if you have money with no good savings or lands. You are a joker. Where you are buried, is where you will rest for ever. You live in High rise buildings and your grand kids can’t locate your tomb. The so called Muslims were all over me and they stood by me. The 8days prayer was done by Muslims. Right there, one of the Alfa called me and said to me I heard you are the only child of Mama. Make sure you go to Hajj, talk to God and pray for your mother. Big thanks to Alhaji Dapo and Alhaji Ayegbami that arranged for my 1st trip to Hajj and Alfa Aremon that taught me some Arabic which I use to pray in Hajj and behold to God be the glory am a living witness.”
