Four little girls have reportedly being salvaged in Abak, Akwa Ibom State after their parents allegedly abandoned them for being ‘witches’.

The story which was shared by Child’s Right And Rehabilitation Network (CRARN), reads:

Four female children were yesterday rescued by a good samaritan around 1:00 AM in the night. The children whose origins are yet to be identified said they were told in a prayer house that they were witches, an allegation which compelled their parent to abandoned in another prayers house which they went for deliverance, for years without bringing them food to them.

Their parent later came to the church at the instance of the pastor, pick them and put in a waiting car which drove them to the Abak bridge and dropped them there. The children were malnourished and seen with wounds, bruises, and scars in different parts of their body indicative of variant degrees of torture, which of course are not uncommon with children who suffer similar faith consequent upon witchcraft stigmatization.
“My father said he’s afraid of God, he would have killed us as instructed by the prophets.” one of the children said.

Four Children Rescue In The Night At Abak, Akwa Ibom State
A right activist said after the rescue: “Children have continued to be abandoned in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria over witchcraft allegation by parents after desperate and nouveau riche pastors and prophets label witches/wizards and made their parents force them on the streets if not killed. These children were lucky to be rescued yesterday in the wee hours of the night at Abak new bridge otherwise, they would have been picked by the lurking human traffickers or ritual killers who maraud the streets in search of children for diabolic purposes.

“Different states in Nigeria, mostly Akwa Ibom, Cross River and River States, remain the hotbed for children abandonment due to witchcraft accusations. Lagos and Ekiti have also been reported to be in the high rank of witchcraft allegation on children and elderly people in recent times which lead to their death and forceful incapacitation.

  2. If they are truly witch,abandon them is like giving them opportunity to kill you,so if you are sure of dx why don’t you take them to church for deliverance, if you don’t have a church to take them to, come mine nd they will be free,God is d same yesterday, today nd forever.

  3. The parents that abandoned them are the true witches and wizards. How can they even become witches if none of the parents initiated them? If that was their thought y not take them to a church for deliverance? Parent-ship is not only by blood but also by care, love and faithfulness.

  4. Where are the so call activists that threatened fire and brimstone during the ese ururu and yunusa yellow’s saga?. This where your services are needed most, but sadly because no Muslim/notherner is involve that’s why you turned a blind eye and maintain a deafening silence on this matter. Shame on you hypocrites. Hundreds to thousand innocent children are going through hell especially in akwa ibom state in the name of fictitious superstition of witchcraft. #saveinnocentchildreninakwaibomstate.
