A witch doctor, contracted to exhume the body of a woman said to have suffered injustice in the hands of her in-laws, collapsed and died inside the grave.
The witch doctor, named Idike Ezikanyi from Uwani-Amaogbo, Amabokwu village in Aku town, Igbo-Etiti Local Government Area of Enugu State, was allegedly recruited by the late woman’s husband, one Nnadi, and other members of his family.
Ezikanyi was to secretly dig up the body of Nnadi’s wife, Stella, who died five years ago and was buried in her husband’s compound. An eyewitness told Vanguard that on the fateful night, the Nnadi family got more than they bargained for when the witch doctor suddenly shouted from the grav
However, before those around could react, Ezikanyi, who made to jump out of the grave, fell back in and died instantly. Sources revealed that the widower had succumbed to pressure from his family members to secretly exhume the body of his late wife and throw it away so that her spirit would be blinded from disturbing those living in the house which she built.
The sources said the family members of the husband had hated his late wife with passion and even disinherited their son. The late wife had a bad leg; a deformity due to an infection in infancy. They didn’t want their son to marry her, even though the son depended on the lady who was very industrious despite her deformity. Despite their pressure and blackmail, the two got married and completed a three-bedroom house of their own.
The sources further alleged that the jealousy and recrimination against her escalated, alleging that the lady died after a spiritual attack. It was gathered that after she died mysteriously, the husband’s family refused to pay the outstanding bride price and also failed to accord her full burial rites. The family members later packed onto the house and, feeling guilty and afraid of spiritual attack from the dead woman, they contracted the witch doctor exhume her body and throw it into an evil forest.
It was during this bizarre occasion that the witch doctor died. Again, one of the widower’s sisters visited the witch doctor’s house to condole the family.
However, it was reported, after she finished crying she instantly suffered a stroke and had to be carried back to her home at Umuidu Amabokwu. (Vanguard)

Makinde a Failed Governor, Says Fayose
Former Ekiti Governor Ayodele Fayose has described Oyo Governor Seyi Makinde as a failed Governor, who does not deserve re-election.
He said the Governor had decided to betray party elders, who assisted him during the electioneering by turning his back against them.
The former governor ruled out any reconciliation with Makinde, saying that the Governor is an obstacle to dialogue.
Fayose told reporters in Lagos that Makinde had the effrontery to query the decision of the National Working Committee (NWC) on critical party matters, thereby making a mess of party leadership.
He alleged that the Oyo Governor was behaving as a politician itching to run the NWC along with his state, adding he had evolved some strategies for division and polarisation of the party in the Southwest.
The former governor was reacting to comments by Makinde, who vowed to ensure that reactionary elements within the Southwest PDP would be fought and defeated.
Makinde also was reported to have warned the NWC against postponing the zonal congress of the party billed for March 6.
He said the zonal chapter will explore legitimate avenues to get the chieftains to do what is right for the party.
However, Fayose said the Makinde had deluded himself into thinking that he is the zonal leader because he is Governor.
He said: “Makinde is a failed governor. He has proved it by his inability to protect the people of Oyo State. He has demonstrated more than enough reasons not to be fielded as our PDP candidate again. He has betrayed trust and in our group, we will not sit with him in dialogue.”
Lamenting that the Governor is opening many battle fronts, Fayose added: “Majority of people Makinde is fighting today are the people who made him. He should stop his ranting. During the congress, we will teach him lessons; that becoming a Governor does not make him a leader. Let him continue to parade the failed politicians around him.
“He wants to run the NWC alongside Oyo State to assist his inordinate ambition to control the Southwest. He lacks the moral justification to criticise the NWC. He who comes to equity must come with clean hands.
“Makinde must be rejected by the people of Oyo State. The young man is opening all fronts for war, barely one and half years in office.”

Woman Caught Sleeping With A 13-Year-Old Boy Says ‘He Asked For It’
A yet-to-be-identified Greendale woman has been arrested after she was caught red-handed having sex with a 13-year-old boy at the teenager’s parents’ home in Houghton Park, Zimbabwe
The minor’s mother got the shock of her life when she returned home on Tuesday February 23, and caught her son being sexually abused by the woman. She immediately called the police, leading to the arrest of the accused.
Police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the arrest and also disclosed that investigations into the case were already underway and details will be released in due course.
“The Zimbabwe Republic Police would like to confirm the arrest of a woman alleged to have been caught having sex with a minor in Houghton Park.”
Upon being interviewed by H-Metro, the lady said she didn’t commit any crime as the minor was the one who invited her to have sex at his parents’ house.
What did I do wrong and how did I know his house if he hadn’t called me?
We had protected sex and I do not see any reason why I can be treated like a thief or robber.
The yet-to-be-identified woman was taken to Waterfalls Police Station where she is currently being detained. In Zimbabwe, having sex with a minor is a criminal offense even if the minor consents. It is a serious crime that attracts jail term.
