When the Child Protection Network and Basic Rights Counsel Initiative (BRCI), a non-profit organisation based in Calabar, the state capital heard about the story, they had to intervene and took the victims under their care.
According to the Executive Director of BRCI, Mr. James Ibor, the perpetrator of this dreadful crime is known to the Police as Nsikak. “Nsikak was invited by the kids grandmother to interrogate the kids about witchcraft”. “The kids said that they accepted to the charge due to the pain they where subjected to. Their grandmother is currently in Police custody while Nsikak is at large.
