Man Accuses His Children Of Witchcraft, Nails Them To A Cross

Man Accuses His Children Of Witchcraft, Nails Them To A Cross – A 40-year-old man, John Friday Akpan resident in Calabar, Cross River State capital, is now explaining to the police why he nailed his children to the cross.

A herbalist named ‘Dr Okokon’ was said to have advised him to nail his children, Elisha and Esther, to a wooden crucifix to cast out the witchcraft from them.

According to a charity organization, Child Rights and Rehabilitation Network, (CRARN) which revealed the bizarre story, Friday Akpan upon discovery that his children are witches and wizards them to terrible treatment.

Elisha and Esther, aged, 12 and 6 respectively, were allegedly nailed to a plank in shape of a cross and locked up in a dark, thatch hut without food for weeks.

“He claimed that the children took his money to their “master in the witchcraft coven and therefore deserve no mercy,” CRARN told the police.

Following weeks of starvation, the two children who look emaciated and like walking skeletons said they survived by drinking only water which was supplied to them by one of the man’s kids from another woman.

“Our sister, Peace usually bring us water inside the hut when our father and our mother had gone out,” Esther said.

The kids narrated that their plight started when their mother died and their father married another wife, Iquo. The stepmother was the one who accused them of witchcraft.

“My mother (stepmother) said the woman who used to live near our house in Akpabuyo gave us food and she put something (witchcraft spell) in the food and when we ate it we changed to bird at night and took our fathers money to ‘our master’ in the witchcraft world,” Elisha who is a JSS one student said.

According to the kids, Elisha was alleged to have taken N4,000 while Esther took N2,000 and that angered their father and step-mother who beat them severely and denied them food.

“They said we took their money to our master in the witchcraft coven. This is something I don’t even understand,” six-year-old Esther said.
