Horror as farmer, 70, kills grandson, says ‘He is a witch’
A 70-year-old grandfather in Kaduna calmly narrated last week how he took his 10-year-old grandson to a bush and killed him for witchcraft. The lad, he said, was responsible for the triple deaths of his own children aged 15, 24 and 20.
The grandfather, Mallam Barde, a farmer of Arak 1 Wase District in Sanga Local Council alleged that his grandson, Barnabas Simon, possessed witchcraft which he used to kill his three children in rapid succession. To mete out his own punishment, Mallam Barde led his grandson to a bush some few kilometers away from their native Kogom village and “slaughtered” him.
The tragedy occurred after the grandson was returned from a church, which specializes in the delivery of witches and wizards as a boy who cannot be delivered.
“The pastor told us he cannot have such a boy in his flock because those the man of God had delivered were being re-initiated by my grandson. We took him there to be delivered so that he can remove himself from their wicked society.
6. Ah. So, If Western Culture Isn't Pure, It Must Not Speak Against Hideous Abuses
That may work for you, but thank you, I'll continue to speak up when anyone is killed for being gay, for property, or when defenseless children or old women are killed for being "witches." I am not be perfect, but I'm pretty sure letting shit that happen and using the "culture" excuse to justify it is evil.
