Crocodiles devour pastor who tried to walk on water like Jesus Christ

Abuja May 16: A Nigerian priest drowned in a river and was devoured by crocodiles when he tried to imitate the miracle performed by Jesus Christ by walking on water.
 
The incident happened on Saturday morning when Jonathan Mthethwa, a pastor of the Saint of the Last Days Church,wanted to demonstrate his faith by walking on Crocodile River water.
 
Members of the Church, who had assembled at the river bank to witness a miracle, said the pastor tried to ascend the water after walking into the river for about 30 metres.
 
At this point, he drowned and the members saw him getting eaten by three crocodiles.
 
One member said that he still did not understand how it could have happened since the pastor had fasted and prayed the whole week before attempting to demonstrate his faith in this manner.
