Witchcraft Conference Begins In Enugu, Nigeria Despite Protests By Christians




We don’t think you’ll ever believe an overly religious country like Nigeria will be the venue of a supposed witchcraft conference although the organizers have argued it’s a mere academic exercise “to interrogate the various things people think is witchcraft,” and not a “gathering of witches” as is being alleged.
So a report by legit.ng states that the controversial witchcraft conference billed for the University of Nigeria (UNN), Nsukka, Enugu commenced on Tuesday despite a strong resistance put up by Christians.
Premium Times quotes a journalist, Patrick Egwu, currently attending the conference as saying the venue was moved from its initial place to a bigger hall.
This is because more people are said to be attending the event as Ewgu puts the figure of participants at about 500.
According to the report, the conference is now holding at the Princess Alexandra auditorium with those in attendance saying: “Amen” to an opening prayer said by Innocent Enweh, a Catholic priest.
Egwu, the journalist, was quoted as saying: “It was more like a normal church event, people calling Jesus and praying that the aim of the event should be achieved.”
According to him, the event banner no longer bears the word ‘witchcraft’ so as to reduce the opposition to the conference. Egwu, however, noted that all the discussions at the conference had to do with witchcraft with nobody showing any objection as was earlier anticipated.
Information from Legit.ng was also used in this report.
