Spectators gathered, but quickly dispersed when they heard Gbenga Adewyn in the market.

Those who were curious enough to approach Gbagi’s market quickly dispersed after hearing his message. “Anyone who can provide proof of the existence of the supernatural, whether it be juju or voodoo magic, will be offered 2.5 million naira (3,563,305 CFA francs),” he announced to several, repeating it in Yoruba and English.
