COVID19: Apostle Suleman And Five Thousand Dollar Healing Challenge By Leo Igwe

Once again I am challenging, the founder of Omega Ministries, Apostle Suleman, to heal a coronavirus patient and get a sum of money, this time a higher amount-five thousand US dollars.

Suleman seemed to imply that the amount, which I had earlier advanced was little. Let’s not forget that in his widely circulated video, Apostle Suleman offered to heal COVID19 patients for free. Thus a thousand dollars offered…

Utu and Witch-hunting in Southern Nigeria

While overwhelming attention on witch-hunting in Nigeria has been on the activities of pastors and other ‘powerful’ godmen and women in Cross River and Akwa Ibom states, little attention has been paid to the operations of witch-finders in other parts of the country. There is limited information about the exploits of witch identifying individuals in contemporary southeastern Nigeria. This article briefly highlights the witch-hunting operation of Utu, a self-acclaimed former secretary of witches in Ngwa in Southern Nigeria.

On Existence and Non Existence of Witches

The existence of witches is a socio-cultural given, an idea that has been taken for granted across societies and communities in Nigeria. Any attempt to question the existence of witches is largely seen as a foolhardy exercise that barely yields any ‘useful’ result or alters the reality of witchcraft in the minds of believing folks. And that is where the problem lies. Witchcraft is a taboo topic, often placed off the list of issues for discussion. This habit of culturally shielding the existence of witches from critical examination and inquiry…
