Prolonged fasting and prayers made a Man goes mad in Edo
A yet-to-be-identified middle-aged man has gone mad after embarking on a 14-day dry fasting and prayers in Benin, Edo State, TheNation reports.

The man, who is said to be married with five children, was said to be returning from the church where he carried out the fasting and prayers, when he started behaving abnormally.

Witnesses said he demanded for a plate of fufu and meat but started making incoherent statements saying he wants to kill himself. Several efforts by sympathizers to make him go home were resisted as he rushed to lie down on the busy Upper Sokponba road.

The pastor of his church later went to the scene but refused to give his name. He simply advised the people to allow the man rest and eat.

A former member of the church who pleaded anonymity, said she left the church because of the manners members were subjected to hunger in the name of fasting. đź“·: TheNation
