Wonders are happening in Nachi, a community in Udi Local Government

Crowds of people arrive at the site just to dip into the river possessing healing power.
The whole story started on November 2011.
Community sources claim that a Fulani herdsman ran to the community and announced how water covered the

Onuigbo said that in 1940s there was no water at that place, only white sand, but if one wanted to drink, one could scratch the surface of the land – and water would
fill one’s hand immediately. Interestingly, commenting on what is all used to be like in the past, he added, that no water would come out for evil people.
Some people say that there used to be a small stream before, but later it disappeared. Still nobody claims to

Mr. Daniel, the Okada operator, disclosed that he abandoned his vulcanizing job to benefit from the new business.
He says, “I have a vulcanizing shop at the Nachi Market, but when this new business came, I had to close the shop temporarily so that I can also make money here. I hardly make N1000 a day there in my
shop, but since I joined this Okada transport to the Enugu Jordan River, I make no less than N10, 000 every day. One of my friends called my attention to it,
and I will forever be grateful to him.”
Healing Powers Although no instant miracle was recorded throughout
the one-hour duration our correspondent spent at the river, sources disclosed that many visitors had testified to all forms of miracles after visiting the place.
People of all ages, with all forms of ailments are being assisted by their relatives and friends to dip themselves
into the river. One man said,
“I heard about people who had difficulties in walking but they got healed after visiting this place; I also heard of people who regained their sight after visiting
this place; I am just coming out from the River and I believed that I am free of any form of sickness and challenges”.
Currently hundreds of excited Nigerians are seeking for miraculous solutions to their problems has continued to
surge into the River. Even security agents are not left behind as some of them were seen either with their water cans or aiding
their loved ones into the River.
