*When a masked gunman entered through the emergency exit of a movie theatre
in Colorado, premiering the closing part of Christopher Nolan’s Batman
trilogy, none envisaged the massacre that was about to unfold. *
In a senseless act of carnage, James Holmes, a PhD student at the
University of Colorado, shot 70 people, leaving 12 dead and scores more
critically wounded in what has been classified as the largest mass shooting
in United States history.
With shock still reverberating around the nation and film industry, a
YouTube video has been released claiming that a Nigerian Pastor, who has a
remarkable penchant for accurate revelations, had actually predicted the
incident one month earlier.
*“In the nation of America, they should pray,” *the YouTube clip showed
Pastor T.B. Joshua saying on Sunday 10th June 2012 during a church
service.*“I am seeing a man carry a gun in a gathering of people and
begin to shoot.
A lot of people will be killed before the man will be arrested… This is
homeland security.” * The prophecy was broadcast live on the ministry’s
media outlet, Emmanuel TV.
During the first gun scene in the movie ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, Holmes,
masked and dressed in black, threw a canister emitting smoke suspected to
be tear gas, which partially obscured the audience's sight. He then
brandished a rifle and opened fire on the crowd, picking his victims at
random and* *only stopping to reload his weapon.
It was a scene *"straight out of a horror film,"* said Chris Ramos, who was
inside the theatre. *"He was just literally shooting everyone, like hunting
season,"* Ramos said. *"There were bullet [casings] just falling on my
head. They were burning my forehead,"* Jennifer Seeger, one of the
witnesses told reporters afterward. *"Every few seconds it was just: Boom,
boom, boom,"* she said.
The police arrived less than 90 seconds after the first emergency calls
were made and almost immediately apprehended the suspect upon their arrival
at the scene. He is said to have told the police that he was ‘The Joker’, a
sinister and psychotic character in Nolan’s previous adaptation of the
After the incident, US President Obama told a sombre crowd in Florida: *"Such
violence, such evil, is senseless. But, while we will never know fully what
causes somebody to take the live of another, we do know what makes life
Flags at the White House were lowered to hall-staff in honour of the
victims. *"This will be a day for prayer and reflection," *Obama said,
calling for the country to unite as one and support the victims*.*
T.B. Joshua is a very popular religious figure in Africa, his predictions
especially revered due to their consistent success rate. He is also well
known for his close connections to Ghana’s President John Atta Mills,
Malawi’s new female head Joyce Banda and Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan
Joshua is said to have also prophesied concerning the tragic shooting in
the military base of Fort Hood in November 2009. His most recent prophecies
have included the demise of Malawian President Bingu wa Mutharika, the
tragic plane crashes in Nigeria and Indonesia and the historic footballing
success of Zambia in the African Cup Of Nations.
