The young man went down to share his story and on getting to the house of the suspected witch he allegedly saw the woman surrounded by a angry crowd who descended on her.
Some parts of her body were swollen, said an eyewitness, and her slippers were similar to those left by the rat.
The man shouted:
“Madam, why are you putting on the same slippers, and why is your body swollen?”
“I had an accident yesterday where I sustained some injuries and lost one of my slippers.”
The young man shared what had happened to him with the crowd, asking people to allow him get the slippers that the rat left behind in his house.
He returned and showed them the single pair of slippers, it was exactly the same with the one on the woman’s foot.
The woman was badly beaten, following which she allegedly confessed to various atrocities of hers adding that she had for years been using the urine from her coven to prepare moi-moi.
