A group, Advocacy for Alleged Witches (AFAW) has said that witchcraft does not exist and that the concept is a myth.

In an interview with PM News, the leader of the group, Leo Igwe, said the act of killing women and children on suspicion that they are witches is barbaric and must be stopped.

He added that witchcraft and other forms of harms believed to have been caused by occultic activities are based on hearsay and misinformation, panic and anxieties, fear and superstition.

Speaking, Mr Igwe said: “AFAW uses a secular, humanist, skeptical and human rights approach to examine witchcraft narratives and address related abuses. Our campaign is founded on the principles that witchcraft is a myth and an imaginary crime that no one commits. It is founded in the principles that attributions or causing harm through occult means are based on hearsay and misinformation, panic and anxieties, fear and superstition.

“Witch persecution, killings, and trials are forms of human rights abuses that should not be tolerated in the name of religion, culture or tradition. I urge all Africans as well as none Africans, including all Africans in the diaspora to join efforts with us to achieve this important objective.”
