The child-witches of Akwa Ibom

Disturbing stories from the East. The rise of the child-witch phenomenon has been developing for the past few years. A truly sick perversion of Christianity which is seeing thousands of young children murdered or ostracised. Thanks Nkem for the link and this great yet horribly sad piece of journalism.

hmmmm, I am not even sure whether I should comment. The video just reminds me of CNN and their sick stories about Africa.I go to a multicultural church in Leicester, UK, and today a guy from Rwanda testified on how he escaped the genocide in Rwanda.He clearly didnt want to say much, just to thank God for life and to solicit prayers for his country men but the British anchor lady kept pushing him, urging him to talk about when his father was almost killed or his mother who was pregnant with twins was carried away and so on.She had obviously heard the story before and knew her fellow Brits would enjoy it.

I really can't understand why the western world likes the horror stories of Africa. Does it make them feel more human than we are. A bit like gods who perhaps are the only ones who can save us from our own savagery?

I am from Akwa Ibom, was born in a village in Akwa Ibom,grew up there and have over half of my family still living there most of them in obsure villages, yet I find this story very strange. Were I home, I would have immediately taken a trip out to verify this. I still will, soon.
I also look forward to the day I will see a Western documentary or article on Lekki for instance, how Nigerians turned a mass of water into a land with beautiful houses inhabited by beautiful people or something positive about Nigeria.
Wow, I have almost created a post. I rest my case.

I call this the batardization of Christianity. I am sick to my stomach at the lenghts human beings will go for a buck! And the ignorance is just astounding!

Can't these villagers see that they are being conned? And at such a price! By greedy charlatan preachers out to make money on the lives of Nigerian children!
These poor harmless children, and such brutality by their brainwashed parents!!! I am so appalled

What can be done about this?

In my head and around me 7:14 pm  

Again, a case of truth being stranger than fiction. And this happening at our very backyard. Scary!

"A witch will put a spell on its mother's bra and the mother will get breast cancer". This is the sort of ignorance that kills.

I hope Helen Ukpabio knows of how many lives she has help change and is prepared for the massive tree she will sow from this seed she has helped plant. Karma can be a bitch, sorry, a witch.

Revolting stuff in the name of Christianity.


So sad to watch. What is our country becoming?

I had just enjoyed a heart breakfast ensconsed in my nicely toasted room, shielded from the winter wind and reality when I saw this.
I have no words. This is a direct result of poverty induced ignorance perpetuation from our corrupt governments.
Those babies were so small...goodness, how do you allow fear to reduce you to the consciousness of an animal?

Nneka's World 6:35 pm  

I saw this video and read the article that accompanied it and said to myself this is why ignorance is deadly.

Look at the small helpless children, i have always said that religion in nigeria = hypocrisy.
I am sorry, but i hate what religion has become, where its now a business! If you are setting up a church for profit, i am sorry you have no business spreading the word of the lord.

I wanted so badly to slap the parents who threw their children out on the street, putting nails in thier heads and all sorts of atrocities in the name of the "Lord".*shudders*

"I really can't understand why the western world likes the horror stories of Africa."

Well, For The Love of Me, bad news is what people want to read, thats why. Think about it. Why should they tell success stories of reclaimed land and wonderful architecture at Lekki, when they are presented with horrific stories of children being abused and murdered because of alleged witchcraft? Isn't that the juicier story?

By the way, I've heard that this sort of thing happens among the Congolese people, and I even have first hand knowledge of a child born in the UK to Congolese parents, who now lives on the sreets in Kinshasa, abandoned by her parents because they believe that she's possessed of some evil power or other..

I had no idea this was taking place in Nigeria too, and I am truly saddened. At school, I remember reading that in the olden days,it was the practice that twins born in that part of the country were killed as soon as they were born. However, it was said that the practice had ceased.

This is so shocking. It is the sort of thing that effective law enforcement could prevent.

eschwienba,  11:07 am  

I have spoken to colleagues who work in the Oil Industry in Eket, they tell me that during the monsoons it was common to see small groups of very young children and infants huddled under parasols at the side of the road during heavy storms. One colleague who lives there for 3 years now told me everybody knows that the children have been branded by pastors as witches and ejected from the communities. The mutiliation in the film is there to see, rather than denying this, Nigerians should be organising the arrest and detention of these unscrupulous pastors and the re-eduction of parents who neglect, mutilate or kill their own offspring. Get real people, you can't deny everything!

Mfon,  12:51 am  

When i read the article and saw the first part of the video , i was really sceptical but at the end of the vid i was just sad. Majority of Naijas still believe in witches/wizards, the only difference here is that these so called Ws are mothers-in law,others-in-law, ugly poor distant relatives or the house helps who just do not have anything to smile about.

I was shocked and then i was not, Akwa-Ibom has a human capital export business/problem,some so young it is like bringing another child into ur home. So the disconnect from their children does not surprise me. What surprises me is the extreme violence. It is one thing to flog the evil from a child under the guise of performing "deliverance" but another to actually cause physical damage and kick the children out of their homes.

Helen Ukpabio, is she not a reformed witch herself? Or so she is known to have said. I never believed her stories anyway, they were just too contrived and i refused to sit through any of her movies. As for the other pastors, if they cannot perform the so called deliverance without buying candles and demanding so much money, surely there are other churches who will perform the deliverance without money? There are a lot deliverance nights in many churches.

The child that said she is a witch, of course she will say she is a witch, that is what they call her. She will pretty much say anything at this point, just so the madness will stop.

These witch finding, miracles and "binding and casting" churches are just all over the place. I think there should be a law, no more exorcisms, or if there has to be an exorcism, there must be no form of assault what-so-ever and there has to be an age of consent,like marriage, cos some of our leaders are members of these churches. Mountain of fire and Miracles,TB Joshuas church, to name a few, everyone/everything not on your side must fall down and die. What sort of prayer is that?

The only reason i am even bothering to make a comment is because children are being exploited and killed. If not i will just put it down as foolishness and move on. So what happens now to those childen?

Anonymous,  3:24 pm  

Absolutely horrific, and why isin't the government doing anything about it?
Does Social Services or Child Protection even exist in Nigeria?

Misan 5:53 pm  

I only just read this article yesterday and I'm really of the mindset that something needs to be done to stop this madness, let me rephrase, I NEED TO DO SOMETHING TO STOP THIS MADNESS. Please, please, is there anyone on here who knows the governor or first lady of akwa-ibom, even indirectly? Pls email me @ misan@theafrobeat.com if you're equally impassioned to do something about this.

thanks.

Misan 5:59 pm  

Just tried to leave a comment but for some reason, it never got posted.

I WANT TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS SITUATION, IT NEEDS TO BE STOPPED. DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO GET IN TOUCH WITH THE GOVERNOR/FIRST LADY OR DEPUTY GOV OF AKWA IBOM STATE? IF SO, OR IF YOU'RE IMPASSIONED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS REGARDLESS, PLEASE EMAIL ME AT misan@theafrobeat.com. Thanks!

Hi, I am the director of a UK charity, Stepping Stones Nigeria, that works with our partner NGO - the Child Rights and Rehabilitation Network - to care for the children that you see in this film and advocate for the rights of the many more children abandoned, killed and tortured due to the belief in child witches.

I do understand the point raised by the previous guy about the western worlds (of which I am a member) infatuation with portraying Africa, and most especially Nigeria, in a negative light. However i would argue that the killing of innocent children cannot be condoned or ignored by anyone, no matter what colour or creed, even if it means upsetting people and further tarnishing Nigeria's image. On a more different note I would say that if you are looking for a positive story from all of this then you should look at the young volunteers at CRARN who care for these children. They work in some of the most challenging circumstances one could imagine and are a real inspiration. They prove that not all Nigerians are 419 fraudsters or corrupt politicians.

To finish I would just like to say that there is hope for these children and indeed for Nigeria. If you want to find out more about our work please see www.steppingstonesnigeria.org or www.crarn.org

you can email me - gary@steppingstonesnigeria.org if you would like to know anything more about this issue and what we are trying to do to protect the children of Akwa Ibom.

Many thanks!

elijah 11:08 pm  

I have just taken pains to read your confusion which u conly try to put together to deceive the world. It is so surprising to see how you spend time to talk about what you dont know and to talk against a woman who is alive and who has churches all over Nigeria without attempting to visit her or to attend her campaigns on the matter of witchcraft. You also say you've never seen a fillm so brutal in nature as end of the wicked, you are the number 1 liar in the world. The end of the wicked is a christian movie that has brought a lot of souls to christ. At least, this is a consolation that the film has achieved its purpose. You also said Helen Ukpabio should be held accountable for two women who were killed in Warri on account of witchcraft. I am sure you dont know Nigeria well because it takes a foolish person like you to talk about what is happening in Liverpool just because it is in Great Britain and force it to be event happening in Manchester. That is how deceitful you are. Helen Ukpabio does not reside in Warri neither does she have any relation in Warri. How come that pictures and video clips are forced on a woman who leaves many miles and states away from Warri. That is what God will use to judge you. Now tracey McVeigh who is your inspirator would have told you she has no business leaving Great Britain with all the load of problems kids have, ranging from drug addiction, irrational killings, stabbing to death and all manners of violence to HOLY AFRICA in search of nothing. Helen ukpabio is a woman of God, called among her people with defined giftings and directions. She has delivered over 40,000 self confessed witches who go about looking for her for help. This she does without collecting a dime from anybody. Your using videoclips from Warri to talk about a woman who has no connection to the clips and none of those people talking in the clips have mentioned her name or church is what God would judge you for. The question i have for you is: Is Helen Ukapbio the only film producer that has done a film on witchcraft using children to act? Harry potter books and films as horrorful and horrible as they are with many children doing many wicked things, why has it not generated news? yet you all cue to buy horror movies with children acting and you keep your mouth shut. The wizard of Oz is it Helen Ukpabio's film?. Hell Raiser parts 1-6 are they Helen Ukpabio's films? are they even produced in Africa? The Exorcist is it a Nollywood film?. I want to advise you, I believe truly you need God in your life, God is missing in your life just like God is missing in Great Britain and the entire United Kingdom. I was expecting to see in the videoclips Helen ukpabio maltreating children who are witches or attacking them violently but i have not seen. What is your gain in this blackmail. You claim you attended the Bristol film festival of 2006 in which she was present, why did you not ask her directly during the question time which was prolonged on such abuses on children. You saw a murderer of children and you let her go? not even when question time was given? you must be a coward. You talked about Helen when she was 14 years if i may ask you how old is she now? You said she is a mother of two, are u sure?. I have no time to waste on cyber murderers like you but i hand you over to God who will judge. As for Helen Ukpabio, she will do her work saving souls, delivering souls and bringing about healings. Im also using this medium to invite you to a program that is coming up in the Liberty Gospel church from the 18th-24th of August 2008 that would be organised by helen Ukpabio titled "DEFEATING THE POWERS OF WITCHCRAFT", It is good to report what you've seen and to show correct clips to the world, instead of superimposing clips which has nothing to do with the church or Helen Ukpabio. In conclusion dont you ever label somebody what the person is not. GOD BLESS YOU......

elijah 6:34 am  

Hello Richard, I am happy to read that you have been following up events on Helen Ukpabio. Thank you for that. I have to point out a few things to you. The woman in question is a woman of God, a vessel in God's hand, called and ordained by God with clear manifestations of spiritual giftings, a woman of holiness, teaching and preaching the truth with specific ministry to deliver the oppressed from satanic bondages. I have never seen Helen Ukpabio carrying out any campaign against child-witch for the past fifteen years of her ministry. It appears you know so much about her but failed to have the map of Nigeria correctly. What do you think Nigeria is? a nation of one state?, how would you feel if somebody is talking about what happened in Frankfurt as if it happened in Berlin?. Does it make the person intelligent or a fool? Two women you claimed were killed in warri was it as a result of Helen's message or on account of her labelling the women witches that they were killed? If not your subtle nature in writing such damages against a woman of God placed you on the very line of the very thing you are condemning Helen for. You are wicked, crooked, crafty, poisonous, and dangerous to women in general. Supposing on account of reading your work, Helen is dragged out and murdered just like those women in Warri according to you, what do you think would have made you different from her? Dear Richard, have you ever sat under Helen's teachings? She holds crusades in Nigeria every other week for the past fifteen years, going by your story and analysis; she would have killed hundreds of thousands of children and women by now. You are a stupid man that is poise to deceive the world just because you hate God and the message of righteousness. The real truth is you all are forming NGO's on child rescue in order to make so much money from CAR2 and from the British Government. "The End of the Wicked" is not against children, and it is not a movie meant to maltreat children, neither was any of such scene seen. Why do you settle down on child-witch and not on the main story line? The film Rapture you claimed was banned by the censor board was the story line on child hunt? If not what connection does it have with your subject matter but just to show your in-depth hatred for God's vessel, you connected it so as to disgrace her and make your money and gain cheap popularity. Richard are you married? Supposing a man writes against your wife and ninety percent of the story are fabricated lies, how would feel? This is the same way Helen's husband a PhD holder in petroleum geochemistry working with Shell oil Nigeria, a former university Don feels. God would judge you for all your lies. IN JESUS NAME (THAT YOU HATE) AMEN.....

Helen Ukpabio is going to hell where she will be punished for the child rape and murder she has made money from. Any one who comes to the conclusion that what she has to say is any where close to the word of God is deluded beyond the realm of rational thought. Education is where it all begins becuase if the villagers where educated they would be able to think rationally and see the lies and pedophillia which is interwoven in to Helen Ukpabio's church of plebs. The wheels are now in motion after the programe shown on European televisions on 12/11/08, Helen Ukpabio your number is up final payment is due.

Anonymous,  11:14 pm  

Helen Ukpabio is a murderer and does not follows the beliefs of God, she is a disgrace and has killed hundreds of thousands of children thanks to her teachings. She still leaves children being beaten, abandoned and left mentally damaged thanks to the parents doing things such as nailing their daughters head. She makes me sick and is not a child of God. WITCHES DO NOT EXIST so stop this horrific trend in Nigeria NOW.

It's amazing how Africans like running to defend our problems rather than dealing with them. We are always looking for someone to blame and it's usually the west or developed nations and we wonder why we aren't developing. How anyone can say that this is somehow a manufactured story baffles me to no end and goes to prove that stupidity and ignorance are abundant. What irks me most is the fact that it's innocent children who are being abused just because some people want to make money. And to those who are defending Helen and all the prophets who profit from the abuse of childres, just know that they've got blood on their hands and judgement will be served by God.

Africans lets wake up and solve our problems and stop pointing fingers while our continent is going down the drain due to greed and corruption. Denial will not make our problems go away.

Finally, let us all know that we are not going to be on earth forever and it is only when we are asked what we did on earth will we receive our dues and for some us they will not be what we expected.

This post is directly for Elijah - Just a suggestion from one of the westerners you despise so well - Why don't you stop worshipping Helen and try worshipping Jesus!!!!!! You sound like a backward idiot. You mention Helen so well and Jesus as an afterthought. Anyone can hold a crusade (here and in Africa). If Helen is such a vessel of goodness, why does she not try giving 1/10th of her movie profits to help these poor children cursed by their fearful communities as witches??????? Whilst I cannot say with any certainty that she is or is not responsible for many of the horrors that abound, what I saw of her on my TV tonight turned my stomach. Loud mouthed, aggressive and threatening, mmmmmm very Godly!!!

People who take part in this persecution of vulnerable children are the most evil beings in this world. If they believe in a god they will be punished to the extreme on their judgement day...suffer the little children...God help them.

I hope Helen Ukpabio burns in hell for eternity!

Helen Ukpabio, is not a Christian, she does not follow the teachings of Jesus in fact she works against everything Jesus taught us. She will pay for the horrible evil she has unleashed when she is handed over to Satan on her death. I pray that the dreadful harm she is causing can be brought to an end as soon as possible. All of her supporters will also be judged but a false profit will pay the ultimate price, all the money she has gained from the misery of children and families will seem nothing to what she will face when she meets her Lord, Satan himself.

Why are the Nigerians here being so defensive? I have just watched the documentary 'Saving Africa's Witch Children' and am appalled that such ignorance can still exist in this day and age. There is absolutely NOTHING racist in the film - it is NOT whites abusing these African kids! I am African myself and have just realised why our continent seems cursed: IGNORANCE! To all of you spewing drivel about allegedly 'annointed' self-appointed prophets and prophetesses STOP IT! Jesus NEVER once sanctioned cruelty to children and this is exactly what your are condoning. I am disgusted.

This message is directed at Helen Ukpabio:

First of all we would like to know what evidence your arguements are based on and which part of the bible says that its ok to torture and kill young innocent children. Witches DO NOT EXIST!!!!!... Furthermore who are you to define who and what is evil whilst having such small minded views yourself. We suggest you go and get yourself educated and then you might realise that the problem started in your own church!!!!!!!
You are personally to blame for the mass killing of many young and innocent children because of your missinformed movies and "teachings"!
If you are looking for evil you should look a bit closer to home.

I watched a TV program tonight which left me absolutely mortified! That poor little innocent children are being murdered, tortured or cast out after those disgusting films are circulated for monetary gain is disgustingly immoral. That in this era of globalisation to find that such filth can be made in the name of Christianity and acted out for real by so called Christians is barbaric. Maybe God will forgive all those involved in these heinous crimes (the greedy film makers and pastors, and even the simple villagers who fall for such filthy religious Nigerian scams) but I can't. In my country these people would get long jail sentences - and rightly so. Check out this UK Telegraph newspaper article: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/africaandindianocean/nigeria/3407882/Child-witches-of-Nigeria-seek-refuge.html

Magnus,  9:09 am  

For he person that wanted to know why Elijah worships Helen Ukpabio so slavishly, watch the channel 4 interview with Helen and read through Elijah's statement again. It seems more than likely that Elijah is not the person (s)he says he is. Notice how Helen and 'Elijah' both use the same examples in their arguments? Or the way that both use non-sequiteurs to prove their (very similar) points? Or how 'Elijah' occasionally argues as if the discussion is about him?

So if you're reading this Helen, may I suggest that you spend some of that money that you make from misleading the foolish and perverting their religion on some summer clothes? I think you'll be going somewhere very hot for a very long time...

Magnus,  9:20 am  

And I have to point out how apt it is that Helen's husband is a high-ranker in Shell Nigeria. While husband makes money by stealing the livelihood of the Nigerian people, the wife makes money by stealing their reason. Remind me Helen, this god you speak of so often, are you sure it's not Mammon?

CLARE,  10:39 am  

I would just like to say that although all of the obove posts make a good point and some of the facts regarding Nigeria may be distorted, and many people say Helen Ukpabio does not harm children.
The cold fact still remains there is no such things as witches and wizards and she is saving sorry delevering knowone there is nothing wrong with them in the first place they are innocent CHILD victims.
The adults and everyones view that all misforunes are caused by witches & wizards is the main issue. and alot of this stigma has been increased by the actions of Helen Ukpabio.
WITCHES DO NOT EXIST. YOUNG CHILDREN ARE NOT SATAN HOW LUDIROUS IS THIS IS, I AM APPUALED.

Let me get this straight, you believe innocent kids are evil, all powerful witches? If so why are they poor, starved and malnuritoned and not living in big mansions with wonderful play things like the pastors. surely if they were witches they would get something out of it. Even if Helen is not telling everyone to kill thier kids because their witches, surely if she is a good a christian as she claims , she would be condeming those who do this sort of thing. she should realise that even if her film is not intending to blame children , she should realise that people have misinterpreted it, as the gospel truth. these are innocent smalll children that are being set upon by the ones who are supposed to love them and protect them. I know that the parents are not well educated and have all been brainwashed, but to torture and abandon thier own children. why are the government not doing anything about it? To those of you who are saying its just westerners ( which I am)who like a good horror story in Africa , how can you deny whats happening , I know in London or America you have mad people that kill thier kids , but the reason why peiople are in disbelief about it is because it is a whole community. May I just point out that those of you who think that people having opposing opinions to you are are evil , your the only ones who actually seem to belive in Satan. surely being a christain is about living a good life , not harming others and doing your best to help those less unfortunate. I can see why a lot of people don't believe in God , if those fundalmentalist believers who use it to do harm than good . look at all the wars that have been started throughout history started because of religion. All peole have a right to an opinion, why are you condeming those who have done no harm to you.why exactly is a person wicked or poisnous if they have opinions about someone? Surely your mind to is warped? Even if witches to exist they only have powere by using plants and herbs , a bit like a doctor. why are the Adults not cast out for being witches ? they are innocent children who do not deserve nay of it. Surely all the good christians, like Helen should be Helping them. if she does have kids what will happen to them if they become accused of being witches , i guarauntee you it will never happen as she has the wonderful all protecting shrould of money. I hope all those prophets get whats coming to them , perhaps them being accused of being witches maybe?,because how can they tell who is a witch if they are not witches themselves? All the things they do to deliver and excorsise people are practices of witchcraft aren't they ? Rest in peace to those children who suffer x

i was apalled by what i saw in the programme.
these poor scared children have suffered so much in their lives at such young ages, and to top it off the average life expenency in Akwa Ibom is just 47.
the hateful and spiteful way the so called preachers are behaving in MUST be stopped.
i am not and have never been a religous person, but i can understand the appeal of being so, these poor people who attend these so called churches are guilty of being ignorant and being brainwashed to the point that they will harm their children on the say so of the church people who are happy to take all of their money, (i thought religon was free?)

REALITY CHECK 3:40 pm  

I watched dispatches 12th November 2008 about the plight of the witch children.
I do not follow any organised religious path, yet i consider myself to be a morally upstanding and gentle human being. I have always thought of God as a loving and caring entity...when i have thought of God at all...for that is what my childhood sunday school days would have me believe...and i do not deny the existance of a higher power...I just have become disillusioned with religion as a whole and the arguments it causes.
I applaud the efforts of Gary and the good guys who are devoting their efforts to improving the situation for the tortured children of AKWA IBOM.
I am appauled that no-one has seen fit to encarcerate that EVIL WOMAN CALLED HELEN UKPABIO yet though. How on earth is she still free to spread her SATANIC RANTINGS???
She needs to suffer the product of her own teachings and be tortured accordingly i think. She seems to loosely draw her material from the old testament and adapt it for her own evil ends...(i wonder if she has heard of ''AN EYE FOR AN EYE...A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH??'').
The woman is nothing but an EVIL MEGOLAMANIAC who extorts money from the poor and the vulnerable in order to line her own coffers...the scarey thing is that she is at perfect liberty to spread her EVIL RANTINGS unchecked and unchallenged by any higher authority of the land.
She stated in the Dispatches programme that she ''IS A VOICE''...i detected anger in her voice when she was being gently questioned by the female reporter...and i detected menace also...as in...if anyone were to challenge her, she could cause them trouble(did anyone else who saw this programme feel this??).
This woman is a financially rich yet morally and emotionally impoverished evil person...who... if there is a hell...will definitely be going there. The sad thing is, she most probably has too many others to take her place and further her lies.

Jesus Christ Cast out devil from those posses and the Pharasees says, it's by Belzebub. Helen Ukpabio Does same, The global world is against her."Oh generation of VIPERS" when will the truth be justify? Nigerian politician are perpetrating evil Killing one another,hunger,jobless,no power supply.No body has comment about it.Yet, Helen is been persecuted. I wish RECHARD will repent and give his life to christ.

Nkoro,

Helen Ukpabio has a powerful influence on the Christian community in Nigeria. Her films spread fear. How is she helping the hunger,joblessness,no power supply and don't forget the children that are being abused and killed because of the fear she is spreading? She is a wealthy and powerful women.

I have not heard anything regarding her helping, just about her films, her wealth and how they link to the abuse of the children.

If anyone has heard of her doing good things to help the children please share.

She is not the only so called clergy that is being sought out. All that are involve in the abuse and killing of the children are also. So called Bishop Sunday Ulup-Aya and Bishop Sunday Okon Williams has been arrested and there will be more and hopefully she will see the error of her ways and stop spreading fear of child witches.

Jesus casted out evil but not in children. In the bible it says that at the age of 12 is when we are accountable for our actions not below that age.
