A man alleged to be a ritualist was nabbed recently after kidnapping a young girl for ritual purpose. According to a trending video posted online, the Hausa man after being caught – was forced to revive and wake the kidnapped girl up after hypnotizing her.
In the footage, the aged man can be seen doing his “magic” while trying to revive the girl as he was surrounded by gun-wielding security operatives and other bystanders. The girl who was later revived after some minutes – woke up with a loud scream before she was taken away by those around and the alleged ritualist taken into custody.
You will recall, Dr. Emem Udoh, a Senior Registrar in the Department of Paediatrics, University of Calabar Teaching Hospital, was abducted by unknown gunmen on Monday, while on duty in Calabar, Cross River State.
This came barely two days after another medical practitioner with the Cross River State College of Education Medical Centre in the Akamkpa LGA, Dr. Usang Ekanem, was released following his abduction on December 26, 2017. .
There are indications that members of the state chapter of the Nigeria Medical Association may embark on an indefinite strike starting from Wednesday (today) in protest against the incessant abduction of their colleagues. .
