“We are being persecuted,” Nigerian witches and wizards cry out

This was made known by Dr Okhue Iboi, the Publicity Secretary of Witches and Wizards Association of Nigeria (WITCAN), while speaking about the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Edo State, shortly after their meeting in Irrua, Edo State

His words: “It is unfortunate that many Nigerians are hypocrites. When they hear witches or read about witches, what comes to their mind is evil or darkness. For our own witches group, we are children of light. We are for good. .

Have people forgotten that even in the Bible there is a story of King Saul who consulted a witch when he was about to go into a battle to enable him know how the battle will go?

Again people tend to forget that Nigeria is a secular state, Nigeria doesn’t belong to only Christians and Muslims, the nation is for all faiths. They should stop persecuting witches or look at us with disdain. As stakeholders they should allow us to make our own contributions to the growth and development of the country.

The forthcoming election in Edo State is going to be hotly contested between APC and PDP. We are holding an emergency meeting at Ofosu next Wednesday, and the person who is going to win the election will be revealed to us at that meeting.”
