A bizarre incident was reported where a Church leader who wanted to show his fellow Church members how God will save him from animals charged toward a pride of lions only to be brutally attacked by the carnivores. It was just in time that a game ranger was able to save the priest otherwise he could have lost his life in this stint.

A church leader had his buttocks brutally mauled by a lion after running towards pride hoping to prove the 'Lord's power over animals.' 

Alec Ndiwane, a Zion Christian Church prophet, was attacked and mauled while on a safari as he was trying to show in front of fellow Church members that God would save him.

It is believed that the church leader had fallen into a trance and started speaking in different tongues before charging toward a pride of lions feeding on an impala in South Africa's Kruger National Park.

However, unlike his expectations as Mr Ndiwane charged toward the animals, the lions attacked him.

Realizing his mistake and that God is not coming any time soon to save him, Mr. Ndiwane fled back to the car, but not before one of the lions clamped down on his buttocks.

He was saved from further attack or even death when the game ranger fired shots to scare the lions off, it was reported by GhanaWeb

He said: 'I do not know what came over me. I thought the Lord wanted to use me to show his power over animals.

'Is it not we were given dominion over all creatures of the earth.'

Mr. Ndiwane was immediately rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery to stitch up his wounds and was later discharged.

Kruger National Park spokesman William Mabasa has said that park officials are not aware of any such incident taking place in the park: 'It would have been reported to us if any of our rangers had taken part in this incident as reported.'
