The YHN/SSNCEF/CRARN Pastors' Parley on Child Witch Hunting in Akwa-Ibom State
The target was barely reached despite the efforts intensified at mobilization. But those that attended the parley really, really, let us into the basics that have informed many of the childwitch hunting cases. Of the 28 selected pastors (our target was 30), about twenty-four believe in the existence of child-witches, about 69% wont mind to openly proclaim them as witches (if necessary); 25% wont do open proclamation and 10% will only do "what they have to do depending on the condition).
