Anti-Witchcraft conference attacked in Nigeria

Nigerian Humanist Leo Igwe was attacked by Christians at a conference in Nigeria, a conference which was critical of children being labeled as witches.

The torturing and killing of "child witches" has become a serious problem in parts of Nigeria.

One of the main villains is Helen Ukpabio, head of the Liberty Foundation Gospel Ministries in southeastern Nigeria.

Ms. Ukpabio, in her book Unveiling the Mysteries of Witchcraft, claims that "a child under two years of age that cries at night and deteriorates in health is an agent of Satan."

Witchcraft practice maybe misinterpreted in a negative way but what others don't know is that it gives value in all complex diversity.
