The love and bond between a mother and her children is naturally strong and so it is not surprising that sometimes, mothers have a premonition when something is not right with their children and times, vice-verca.
Kyauta Auta, mother of six, had a premonition about the suicide bomb attack at St. Rita Catholic church Kaduna, that left as many as 10 worshippers dead including the bomber and several others injured:
According to her, “I was away in Abuja worshiping in a Church. Somehow tears started flowing from my eyes. There was no reason for it. After a while, the tears would flow again. Then when I turned, I noticed that my husband had slipped away.
“I went for my phone and discovered that I had over twenty calls. It was when I went outside and placed some calls that I discovered what happened. So we had to rush down to Kaduna. My six children were attending the Church with my relations.
“Six of them were injured. Three were not so injured. But they were very hurt. That is Elvis. You can see how he is doing. But by the grace of God, he will be alright. Oh! God help us!” she concluded as she pointed in the direction of 8-year old Elvis Auta, who lay critically hurt on his hospital bed.
