A mere allegation of witchcraft even if without evidence against especially poor old women is enough to get an entire community to ostracize the accused. These alleged witches are sent to shrines that are constituted in a way that they will automatically confirm that the accused is guilty. In this report, GBC’s Abdul Hayi Moomen visits the Kukuo witches camp and interacted with an 80-year-old alleged witch who has been abandoned by her community and children for 26 years now.

Hawabu, one of the alleged witches, spoke to Abdul Hayi Moomen.

“At the foot of the camp, not too far away if one has access to a good motorcycle or vehicle, is the historic Oti River, its pristine waters spying on the sorrows of tens of humans – particularly, women who have been accused of witchcraft. As we enter the little village, a dog and her six puppies roam aimlessly.”
