NOSA AKENZUA, ASABA
Authorities of Faith Academy School in Ugbolu, a community near Asaba, Delta State, have embarked on prayer sessions, following confessions by some Junior Secondary 1 students that they are witches. The school is owned by the Living Faith Church, an international church outfit presided over by Bishop David Oyedepo.
Investigations by our correspondent revealed that three female teenagers, in JS 1, openly confessed to have been responsible for many atrocities, including sucking fellow students’ blood. Eye-witnesses said that during their confessions, one of the suspected teenage witches, who gave her name as Angel (surname withheld) said, “I am the leader among the three of us; we could not stand the heat of prayers from our chaplainmasters, including those from our fellow students whom we used to suck their blood in the covens.
“We were initiated by our parents; even though we came from different homes, we all became messengers in the covens to collect blood of our fellow students. In most cases, our fellow students were always down with malaria because of their blood that we collected and deposited in the covens.”
It was reliably gathered that the suspects often escaped from the school’s hostels during prayer sessions at night, unknown to the school authorities, reportedly to hold nocturnal meetings. But last week, the chaplains reportedly raised a search party to locate their whereabouts after it was discovered that they were out of school during a prayer session
