Nonwhite invaders living in an invader camp in GrännaForsa, southern Sweden, have demanded that they be moved to a new center because ghosts are haunting them, local media have reported.
The invaders said that their children had alerted them to the fact that their house was definitely haunted.
“The children told us a few days ago, and then we adults saw it as well,” an invader name Hamid Alojaili told the Smålandsposten newspaper.
“We are sure the building is haunted,” Alojaili said. “Doors are opening by themselves and there is no one outside,” he said in English in a video interview.
Also, many people are “getting the feeling” that they are not alone even in the bathroom. The fire alarm starts without any reason, they say, and the children cry every night, even though the adults try to calm then.
“This is not about nightmares,” Alojaili said. “We would rather stay in tents than in the house in Gränna Forsa “because it’s too dangerous to be there.”
“This was surprising. We had no indications that there would be problems with ghosts before,” said Swedish Migration Agency manager Magnus Petersson.
Among other things that the invaders complained about were flickering lights, and noises in the plumbing system, he said, adding that 35 of the 58 people living in the invader house came to the agency’s office in the nearby town of Alvesta earlier this week, demanding to be relocated.
Some of them returned to the shelter at the end of the day after being told there were no ghosts, and that no alternative housing was available. Others however refused, and took the train to Malmo.
“I know that in their faith there is a different view on spirituality,” he said. “We were responsive to them but somewhere you have to use your common sense and believe in science.”
Stefan Johansson, a co-owner of the facility, said it was built in the nineteenth century and was long used as a home for disabled people. He said there are natural explanations for all the things that have spooked the invaders.
“It’s an old house and the doors maybe are a bit crooked,” he said. “Sometimes there are cracking noises in the pipes.” The flickering lights were caused by glitches in electrical switches, he said. “We have explained all this to them. How much of it they took in I don’t know,” Johansson added.
One of the children, he said, saw “something sit at a table,” but when he tried to look what it was, it dropped under the table and disappeared.
It was apparently of no help when staff at the center told the invaders that there was indeed a ghost at the house, but that it was a “good ghost” which helped to “clean up” after them.
