The Merriam Webster Dictionary described witchcraft as the use of sorcery or magic.
Meanwhile a lady has called out UNN for allegedly planning an academic exercise on witchcraft practices. The lady identified as Maudlyn Adaeze Ekwueme noted that to know about witchcraft means the person is a witch. The lady took to her Facebook page to condemn the exercise, stating that she would speak against it.
According to her, the professor who plans to hold the conference wants to sound enlightened by carrying a satanic agenda to blindfold others. She expressed that they should instead research on masquerades and shrines instead of doing one on witches. The lady, called on God to put a stop to the research adding that Idahosa’s anointing is needed for this generation.
