Child witches in Nigeria

This video was created two years ago, and with the serious issues of witchdoctors in Africa, you can imagine that these issues still exist for children within Nigeria.

I cannot believe that any adult could be that gullible and simultaneously cruel to their own child.

It is yet another issue for human rights activists and organisations to become involved in, and the law is doing slim to none to protect these children from a money-making exercise that feeds from superstition.
