Watch Hunting Video: Filipian Girl Claiming To Be Possessed By Dead Brother’s Spirit Reveals Shocking Details Of Her Brother’s Murder

Footage has emerged of a teenage Filipina, supposedly possessed by the spirit of her dead brother, revealing details of his murder.

Abigail Magtalas, aged 16, started trembling on Saturday (July 14) three months after her brother Marvin, 19, was shot dead by police in Nueva Ecija.

The girl claims that her brother was speaking through her to reveal that he endured hours of torture before being killed. 

“They tortured me, they beat me and shot me seven times. They were gangsters. Listen to me, I was murdered,” she says in the footage.

Police said Marvin had been with two alleged drug dealers when he was killed in a gunfight with anti-drug officers on March 16.

Abigail can be seen crying uncontrollably before recounting details of the shooting, including when and where he was allegedly abducted.

In between sobs, she described how her brother pleaded for his life. “I was begging them to not kill me. I told them to just put me in jail,” she says.

Then, to her mother, who is seen trying to comfort her, she adds: “I’m sorry I did not listen to you. I should have gone home early that day.”

In the video, Abigail claims Marvin was kidnapped at midnight by several men and taken to Baypass Talavera in Nueva Ecija, where he was allegedly tortured.

Abigail describes how they killed him after four hours of torturing him after which they dumped his body in a nearby town.

“They shot my legs and told me to run. Then someone pushed me on the bridge,” Abigail says.

Abigail’s sister-in-law Danica Magtalas said: “She really loves her brother and can’t accept his death. She also wants justice for his brother.

“We are not lying. This is just the first time that this happened to Abigail.”

Pupils Rushed To Church After Mass Hysteria Closes Two Cebu Schools 

Pupils Rushed To Church After Mass Hysteria Closes Two Cebu Schools 

 

Pupils rushed to church after mass hysteria closes two Cebu schools

Two schools on the island of Cebu were forced to close after outbreaks of mass hysteria among pupils struck within hours of one another. 

The phenomenon was first reported at Ronda National High School on Friday morning (June 22) when 20 students became hysterical. 

The Grade 9 and 10 students told teachers that they had seen the ghost of a child in the school. 

Edmond Obiso, desk officer at Ronda Police Station, said police officers were sent to the school and the children were taken to a local church.

Then, just hours after the outbreak in Ronda, 19 pupils of Colawin National High School in Argao town also succumbed to a similar outbreak of hysteria.

The Argao Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office deployed a team to the school at 1pm to respond to the situation.

Some of the affected students were sent to Isidro Kintanar Memorial Hospital, while others were taken to a nearby church.

According to a report on dyAB TeleRadyo Cebu, school officials said the outbreak of hysterical behaviour was somehow related to a decision to “replace an axed mango tree”.

While unusual, such outbreaks of mass hysteria have been seen before in the Philippines. 

In February, a school in Palawan was forced to cancel lessons after 15 students were supposedly possessed by evil spirits.

According to a report on GMA News, the affected students were “rushed” to a Catholic church after the supernatural outbreak.

The school’s principal, Vicente Tamanyo, told the broadcaster that the incident occurred after two students claimed to see the spirit of a woman, covered in blood.

The hysteria then spread to other pupils, including Mr Tamanyo’s own son, who is a student at his school. 

According to eyewitnesses, the possessed students were heard to speak a “strange language” and were said to display “freakish strength”.

The 15 affected youngsters were then taken to a nearby church for prayers before being sent home. Lessons were cancelled for the remainder of the day.

Belief in demonic possession remains widespread across the Philippines.

Last September, we reported on a warning by the chief exorcist of the Philippines that “Illuminati satanists” were distributing “cursed rosaries” to unsuspecting Catholics.

Father Ambrosio Nonato Legaspi made the claim on Novaliches’ Radio Veritas show Hello Father 911. A report on the show was carried on the news site of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines.


He said: “Listeners, be careful as the rosaries you might be using could actually be infested or cursed!”

The priest claimed that the rosaries were being given away by satanists, acting as part of a shadowy group called the Illuminati.

Then, shortly before Halloween, another Filipino exorcist warned that dressing up in spooky costumes could also lead to demonic possession.

Father Marius Roque, exorcist for the Archdiocese of San Fernando, said he had performed exorcism rites involving two young people who had dressed up for Halloween parties.

One was the case of a teenage girl who wore a black lady costume for a Halloween party. After a few weeks, it became obvious she was possessed by evil spirits,” he said.

The priest claimed that when the girl was taken to see him, he found her mouth and belly button “emitting froth”.

‘…There Is A Special Place In Hell For Killers, There Is A Worse Place For Those Who Kill Priest’ – Philippine Bishops 

‘…There Is A Special Place In Hell For Killers, There Is A Worse Place For Those Who Kill Priest’ – Philippine Bishops 

Sadly, three priests have been brutally murdered over the past six months in the Philippines.

Reverend Father Richmond Nilo, the parish priest of St. Vincent Ferrer Parish in Zaragoza, was shot in the chapel on Sunday where he was preparing for Mass. Surveillance video obtained by police shows that he was targeted in a premeditated murder by a group of men. 

CCT video shows one of the men crouching by one of the chapel windows and firing seven rounds from a .45 caliber pistol through the window, killing Fr. Nilo beside the altar. Amado Corpus, the regional director for Central Luzon police, explained at a press conference on Monday that Fr. Nilo was followed as he drove to the chapel. The car drove away, but a few minutes later a motorcycle with two men stopped beside Fr. Nilo’s car. 

Corpus explained, “They shot the priest almost two to three meters away from the altar.” 

Archbishop Socrates Villegas and other several officials from the diocese of Lingayen-Dagupan called on Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte “to stop the verbal persecution of the Catholic Church because such attacks can wittingly embolden more crimes against priests.” 

Father Nilo is the third priest killed in the last six months. In May, Fr. Mark Ventura was shot after Mass. In December, Fr. Marcelito Paez was shot by gunmen riding a motorcycle. 

In a statement released on Tuesday, the clergy of the archdiocese of Lingayen-Dagupan decried the killing of priests.

The bloodied soil is crying to Heaven for justice,” they wrote. “God’s justice be upon those who kill the Lord’s anointed ones. There is a special place in Hell for killers. There is a worse place for those who kill priests.”

They also called for a day of reparation on June 18, the ninth day after his death, to be a day of fasting and abstinence, with a dawn pilgrimage, exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Masses.

The bloodied soil is crying to Heaven for justice.

Additionally, they call that “all the parish church bells should ring for 15 minutes at six o’clock … to commemorate the time when Fr. Nilo was killed.”

The statement recalled the power of the Rosary that helped remove Ferdinand Marcos from power in 1986 and “cast the dictator from his throne.” 

“Courage is contagious. Cowardice stinks. Prayer heals. Penance revives the dead,” the statement read. It continues: 

We are not afraid. We trust in the Lord. We are ready to battle for God’s honor. They want to bury us priests. But they forget that we priests are seeds. When you bury us, we will grow more and flourish. You cannot stop the Gospel from growing. You cannot stop God from being God. You cannot muzzle the voice of Truth.

Some parishioners believe the murder was a result of a rift with members of the Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ, INC). The INC was started in 1914 by Felix Y. Manalo, an ex-Catholic, who believes himself to be the restorer of the church of Christ and “God’s last messenger.” 

Father Nilo was reported to be “a stern defender of the Catholic religion” and a public debate with the INC was scheduled for August 31. 

Noel Jetajobe, the Vicar General, said these rumors were unfair, noting there have been other public debates that didn’t result in killings. 

Corpus confirmed that a religious motive has been included in the investigation, but said, “We cannot say the motive until it’s supported with enough evidence.”

A witness who was planning to attend Fr. Nilo’s Mass told reporters that there were around 70 people inside the chapel when Fr. Nilo was shot. Corpus explained that a police task force is preparing a composite sketch based on the CCTV footage and eyewitness accounts.

Eternal rest grant unto him oh Lord and let your perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.
