Children stigmatized as witches and Wizard in Nigeria

Share this:  

I do not yet know why plants come out of the land or float in streams, or creep on rocks or roll from the sea. I am entranced by the mystery of them and absorbed by their variety and kinds. Everywhere you go, they are visible yet mystical.

But I know for sure that innocent children being denounced by pastors as witches and wizards and then killed, tortured or abandoned by their own families is not mystical or a mystery but a barbaric and wicked act. These kids are victims of ignorance.

Bedwetting, sleepwalking, disagreeing with parents or being left-handed are considered relatively normal features for many children, but in some African countries, these are grounds for sometimes deadly accusations of witchcraft against them. Thousands of children each year are beaten, burned, imprisoned and subjected to exorcism rituals because they are believed to be witches.

Folks, we must rise up and challenge this barbaric act meted to our kids. Enlighten your neighbour, please tell them to stop sending their kids to these make-belief quacks and occultic pastors and dangerous seers.

Just like giving birth to twins was seen as a taboo in the past, these normal phenomena should not be seen as a taboo. help us educate your family, neighbours and friends…….. These so-called pastors and impostors should help to save lives instead of wasting it…. Please help me share this..we must promote awareness among governments, civil society, academia and the media about the need for psycho-social support for vulnerable children … No life should be wasted #savekidslife

  • It appears that the evil spirits that Jesus cast away from demoniacs now reside in Africa and perhaps in the innocent souls of African children. So Africa, rise up and walk!

  • An innocent child who doesnt know the difference between evil & good is labelled with evil. The child begins to accept they are evil, cruel & unaccepted. They grow witj no guidance or love & probably end up growing to be criminals. Growing with life as a torture. Then society catches this thief & burns him alive. The entire life of the child is a torture. Stupid adults turns innocents kids to grow to be a problem for the society. Then they are mistreated & killed. So many innocent bloods is being shed in Africa on a daily basis. This has cursed our continent. God save us. God punish all these stupid adults. If only i had some powers from God. I will make it my full time job to deal with these idiotic adults.
