“My mother hit me with machetes and locked me up in the toilet” – 5-year-old boy accused of witchcraft in Akwa Ibom narrates his ordeal

Victor was rescued by a community leader and Child’s Right And Rehablitation Network (CRARN) volunteer, Prince John Ekpo, who first took him to their house and met only his old blind grand mother who was stigmatized a witch as well and crying for help.

Speaking to a CRARN admin personnel, Victor narrated how his mother allegedly used machetes and hit him several times and locked him up in the toilet.
