A traditional healer claims he has brought the misery of a family plagued by mysterious fires over the last few years to an end, with the capture of two types of demons which bothered the family.
Sinar Harian Online quoted Saad Jaafar, 44, saying that he has caught the demons through procedures he carried out on the family in Kampung Penambang Bunga Emas, Kota Bharu, Kelantan.
“The first type of demon originated from the foundation of this house and it admitted to torching the house, as it liked to play with fire.
“The second type of demon was passed down for generations in the victim’s family. It admitted to cutting the victims’ clothes and stealing their money. These are the beings which caused the family so much misery,” he was quoted as saying.
The family has been plagued by mysterious fires that broke out within hours of each other, without explanation, since 2012. One such incident saw the family home razed to the ground.
One of the family members, Wan Nur Fatihah Wan Hanafi, 19, lamented being stressed over the treatment she received from her neighbours over the incidents.
“Wherever I go, people are afraid that a fire will break out. Since the family home burnt down, some were reluctant to give us a house to rent as they thought the demons would follow us.
“I have done everything possible (to keep the demons away) and so far, the fires have only been plaguing me and my family and no one else, so please don’t be afraid of me or it will complicate things further,” she was quoted as saying.
She also claimed that there have been no major incidents in the household since the “cleansing” process was carried out three days ago.
“I hope nothing will catch fire after this as I would hate to see it happen again,” she said.
