Six pupils (one male and five females) who are alleged to be witches and wizard, have revealed how they were initiated into witchcraft in Danjuma area of Akure, Ondo state capital.
The oldest pupil identified as Idayat, revealed she initiated her sister and the four others into witchcraft to journalist Omo Edema. According to the kid, an elderly female neighbour in their previous house initiated her into witchcraft.
“I can’t remember the year I was initiated into witchcraft, but can remember I joined them in the house we were living before at Idole, Akure.
“One day a little girl like me then came to me and said I should accompany her somewhere which I obliged. She took me to an elderly woman where they gave me biscuit and groundnuts. I ate them there. Immediately I finished eating those things, they commanded me to go and begin to bring people’s glories to them”, Idayat said.
On how many glories she has taken to their coven, the pupil confessed that it has been that of her parents so far;
“I have not collected many glories. I have only taken the glories of my mother and father to them”, Idayat said without mincing words.
In her shocking revelations, the alleged witch confessed that a neighbour and member of the group identified as Eunice had collected the glories of the whole house—an upstairs said to be about twenty rooms.
“I didn’t touch anybody in this house. Eunice was the one who collected their glories. I and Eunice are highly ranked in our coven. We both possessed four different birds each in our bellies”, Idayat confessed.
According to Idayat said all the witchcraft birds in her belly, were used for afflicting her parents for punishing her for her wrong doings.
“The first bird in my belly is used for troubling my mother for punishing me for my wrong doings. The second one is used for pushing my mother into heavy debt. The third one is used to invoke misfortune on my father while the fourth bird is used for sending my father out of his matrimonial home”, she said.
The daughter of a Muslim cleric (Alfa), said they normally converge for their witchcraft meetings at available uncompleted buildings. Idayat’s younger sister, Kudirat also confessed to be a member of the group. According to her, she also concentrated her wicked afflictions on her parents too.
The mother of the duo, Anuoluwapo had earlier spoken with Omo Edema, and blamed the matter on the father of the children who she said had failed in his true parenting. The journalist reported that Eunice and all other alleged members of the coven confessed and confirmed their being into witchcraft. The live confession of the 6 pupils, was aired on ILE-AYE radio programme on Voice 89.9FM, Ado-Ekiti.
