Ever heard about the mysterious rock called Zuma? The monolith that is surrounded by myths and legendary tales. Even if you have, you definitely may not know what i have just discovered about this particular rock that is distinguished from many others, due to its mysterious nature, yet natural existence and events that surround it. Wouldn't you love to find out more below? Why the Zuma Rock is surrounded by myths and legendary tales.
Due to where this rock is located, Itâ€™s almost impossible to not notice the mysterious Zuma Rock â€“ which stands high at 725 meters/2,379 ft, the mysterious rock majestically presides over the surrounding landscape. For many who have travelled past the rock's surrounding area, they would sometimes notice an unusual silence whenever they travel along the Kaduna - Abuja highway, where this rock rests on the boundary between Niger State and Abuja - FCT.
The Man In The Image Above Is Chu Jiwang -
Since no one could precisely give an account regarding the emergence of this mysterious rock, so i decided to really dig dipper when i discovered Mr. Chu Jiwangs story about the emergence of the Zuma rock when he visited Nigeria, although his theory isn't anywhere far from a myth, but let's find out what he explained in brief words.
His theory claims the Zuma rock emerged from the ancient Greek gods, starting with Poseidon, who invited his elder brother whom was named Zeus, to dinner. Poseidon served a delicious lobster that by the time it was finished, Zeus kept sucking on three pebbles that had juices on them, after it was used to roast the lobsters. One of the pebbles was used by Nigerians at the border and as a central marker, while another was lost without any trace, and the last one which was the third ended up as the Zuma Rock.

The Legendary Tales About The Origin Of Zuma Rock:
Despite Mr. Chu's brief story, we should not forget that he only explained how the rock possibly emerged before the settlers found it and settled there. Following the legendary tales, precise account of the rocks existence can be given dating back from the 15th century when it was surrounded by a thick forest before the people of Zuba became the first settlers around the rock, after finding it. They initially named the rock "Zumwa" which means "The place guinea fowl is caught" after it was discovered that so many guinea fowls inhabited it.
When the Zuba people first arrived at the location of this rock, they settled around it and soon believed that the rock had a spiritual representation which made it seem as a powerful deity to them. They began to worship and offer sacrifices to the Zuma rock, in order for the rock to protect them from enemies and keep them safe from any evil. As time went by, the people of Gwari took advantage of the rock by using it for the purpose of defense, and hideout in case the neighboring tribe or external force decides to invade their home.
What Makes Zuma Rock Mysterious
As seen in the image above, please notice the human face natural contour in front of the rock that depicts the real face of a human being, with a visible nose, mouth, eyes and even a forehead. The early settlers around the rock believed the face represents the physical manifestation of the deity, as well as the presence of ancestral powers that protects and govern the events and affairs of the surrounding community.
The early settlers also believed The rock to be a gateway for the afterlife, since it is their belief that when people die, the rock accepts their spirits to dwell in it. They also say whenever there is a loud noise being heard from the rock, it could mean that a person who is well known by many may have lost his or her life. How true can this be? All I can say is that this belief is really so amazing and quite unbelievable, yet the settlers never gave up on their belief which is why it turned out to be truly mysterious and i am here today writing about this rock. Let's find out more below.
The Part Of The Rock That Spits Fire
Another myth surrounding The Zuma Rock suggests that during the rainy season, precisely between April and October, it is said that the apex of the Zuma rock spits out fire. Even some of the natives in the community attest to the happenings and wonders of the acclaimed deity and voodoo spells.
Belief Of Zuma Rock Preventing Disaster
There is another interesting myth that explains the Zuma Rock sitting on quite a large expanse of an underground water, which insinuates that if the rock is pulled down, an outburst of water will emerge and will submerge an unimaginable area of land.
More Facts About Its Uniqueness
This mysterious Rock featured on one of our old currency banknotes, which is the 100 naira note as you can see in the image above. This further tells us that it's uniqueness is also being acknowledged by the Nigerian government, now isn't that just too wonderful? It is, but could it be because of the size, the visible human face, or the fact that it spits fire at it's Apex? I guess not, but let's check out a little bit of comparison below.
1). Firstly, the Zuma rock is twice as high as the Australian rock called Uluru Rock.
2). The Zuma rock is also higher than the Aso rock in Nigeria, and also the Olumo Rock in Abeokuta - Ogun State. Even when you add these other two rocks together, they will still not matchup the height of the Zuma rock.
3). The Zuma rock is probably about four times or far more higher than Nigeriaâ€™s tallest building, NECOM House.
Note: Despite the supernatural powers which is believed to dwell within the rock, it hasn't discouraged many from visiting the rock for the purpose of sight seeing, picnics, tourism and surveys.

Hours After U.S Army Stormed Nigeria, This is What Buhari's Aide Tweeted That Got People Talking..
The U.S department of state has announced the rescue of an American citizen who was kidnapped by bandits in Niger but was held hostage in Nigeria. According to the state, the American citizen was kidnapped by bandit in Masalata, a boarder town in Niger. He was identified earlier in the week by a local government official as Philipe Nathan Walton, though other officials and news reports cited slightly different spellings of the manâ€™s first name, including Phillipe and Philip.
â€œNo U.S military personnel were injured during the operation. We appreciate the support of our international partners in conducting this operation,â€ The statement said.
"The @NBCNews deliberately excluded Niger and mentioned only Nigeria so they can get the target retweets and attract more Nigerians to curse Nigeria. They knew Nigerien will not take such information as an excuse to curse their country. Some Nigerians are already doing it gladly." He writes.
But his statement was backlashed by many tweeter users who disagree with him. Checkout some of the comments below:
Pen!s Captivus And All You Should Know About It
Pen!s captivus is an occurrence during sÂ£xual intercourse when the muscles in the van!na clamp down on the pen!s much more firmly than usual, making it impossible for the pen!s to be withdrawn from the van!na. Reports of this cases are incredibly rare though, but it happens.
The pen!s becoming stuck in the vagina is one possible outcome of a condition called vaginismus, in which the van!na involuntarily closes due to muscle spasms in the pelvic floor.
The van!nal walls are made up of muscular tissue, which expands and contracts at different times during sÂ£x, such as during an orgasm. These contractions can be very strong, and they are sometimes stronger than usual.
In some rare cases, the vagina may contract with enough force to latch onto the pen!s. This could make it difficult for the partners to separate.
WHAT TO DO WHEN PEN!S CAPTIVUS OCCURS
If pen!s captivus occurs, the effect is likely very temporary. If both partners relax and give it some time, the muscles should relax, allowing the couple to separate.
The partners are advised to stay calm. Added stress can lead to more muscle tension which can make the phenomenon last longer. Do not force the pen!s out of the van!na or or try to open the van!na or pry the pen!s out manually.
Take a deep breath, calm your nerves, make a joke out of it and focus your minds on something outside sÂ£x. This can relieve tension and reduce arousal in the genitals which would make the pen!s weak and smaller and can easily separate from the van!na
