'Haunted Bible' possessed by the spirits goes on for 60 million Naira

Bible possessed by the spirits

The Bible has been listed on the auction site by a man, named only as Fred, who wants to sell the book because he is so afraid of the bad luck the book might bring in to his home.

Daily Mail reported that Fred, from Harrington, Cumbria, was given the Bible, which is thought to date back to the early 1880s, by his female friend, who inherited the book from her grandparents.

The woman, who has not been named, gave him the book in 2011 because she had 'had enough' of the ghostly activity she believed it caused in her home.

Fred said: 'There were doors opening, cupboards opening, stomping, someone walking upstairs.'

He said the 'final straw' for his friend came when she thought the spirits had pulled her down the stairs by her hair in the middle of the night, leaving her shaken and bruised.

Fred said he 'cleansed' his friend's house after she told him of all the spooky happenings. 'I prayed and sprinkled holy water all around the house and commanded evil spirits to leave,' he said.

He also took the Bible out of the house, believing it could be the cause of the ghostly events. And as soon as the book was removed, the haunting stopped.

He left the leather-bound Bible in his property in Cumbria for three-and-a-half years while he and his family lived in the US.

When he returned to the UK, Fred, who has a baby, moved the Bible to an empty room in a church, fearful of the bad luck it might bring to him and his family.

He has since put the Bible up for sale and has so far turned down an offer of £50,000, believing the book to be worth more because of its spiritual connections.

'I know its valuable not just because of its date because its antique, because its got spirits attached to it. I know people are interested in that sort of thing.'

The sale currently has 16 days left on eBay and can be bought for £120,000.

On the selling page Fred has written: 'This book is highly haunted and after getting a couple of psychics examining it, I've been told that spirits are attached to this book, therefore I accept no responsibility for any poltergeist activities that this Bible might bring into your dwellings, and I'm not to be held accountable to any incidents of the sort.'
