YHN/CRARN rescues a teenage girl accused of witchcraft

In June, YHN rescue team, led by Bassey Antia (Rescue and Investigations Officer) on receiving a call to rescue from an anonymous caller (through our dedicated rescue hotline: +234 8084078439), swung into action to rescue Idongesit from Edor, Esit-Eket. She was accused by his "foster" step-father of being a witch.
The girl was rescued, the case was investigated and the criminal-minded step-father who inflicted the injuries was arrest. The man of God who confirmed her being a child was on the run. When later arrest, on 17 June, 2012, he claimed he NEVER said that. We then requested the Police initiate prosecution against the step-father. - Bassey, for YHN
