Taribo Reveals How He Met God One-On-One

Former Super Eagles defender, Taribo West has disclosed how God appeared to him one-on-one in his dream.

Taribo made this known in an interview with BBC on Saturday, where he revealed how he moved from being a footballer to preaching God's words on the pulpit.

The former Inter Milan star, who founded Shelter In The Storm Miracle Ministries of All Nation in 2014, explained how he met God.

“Why would I switch from being a footballer to becoming a pastor? I saw God one-on-one. That’s where my transition started; From the field to the pulpit.

“We were celebrating. In the middle of that, a woman stumbled into me and said: ‘Sir, please may I know your name?’ I said: ‘I am Mr. No name’. She said: ‘May I know where you live?’ I said: ‘I live nowhere.’ She left with annoyance.

“In the twinkle of an eye, I just heard an audible voice. And it came like a slap. It said: ‘Switch, turn.’ I turned. It said: ‘Look at the woman. Look for her now and call that woman and apologise to her. I said that to you.’ That can only be a voice from God

“So I switched, like a Robocop, I start searching for the woman, and when this sister came all the way from America, she told me a lot of prophecies. And she told me in the next one or two years; I would open a church. All the prophecies she gave me came to pass.”
