CHILD WITCHCRAFT AND CHILD RIGHTS IN AKWA IBOM STATE

Child witchcraft stands for the claim that children can be witches and wizards or that infants can or do engage in witchcraft activities like transforming into birds or insects- at night- to suck blood or mysteriously cause misfortune or inflict harm on someone.
