“Enough is Enough” – Association of Nigerian Witches & Wizards Declare War on Boko Haram

Witches Declare War on Boko Haram - BN News - July 2014 - BellaNaija.com
The witches and wizards in Nigeria are not happy with Islamist militant sect Boko Haram.

The Sun reports that an emergency meeting was held at Afuze, Edo over the challenges facing the country, especially the nation’s security.

In an interview with the publication, the leader and spokesman for Witches and Wizards Association of Nigeria (WITZAN), Dr. Okhue Iboi said the emergency meeting was to discuss a way forward.

“Witches and Wizards in Nigeria are deeply worried by what is going on in the country especially Boko Haram insurgency. As stakeholders in the Nigerian project, we can no longer afford to fold our hands while the nation burns. Enough is enough” Iboi said at the event.

According to Iboi, it was witches and wizards from Borno, Adamawa and Yobe that urged the association to have the meeting.

He said the bi-annual meeting of the association was scheduled to be held in the first week of October, but because of the sect “our fellow brothers and sisters from the these three North eastern states” pleaded for the emergency meeting, to “help cage Shekau and his blood-thirsty lieutenants.”

The 55-year-old also said the days of Shekau are numbered and he will be captured before the end of December, as well as paraded on the streets of Abuja and Maiduguri for the world to see.

And for the parents of the missing school girls, he says they should smile as “those girls are coming back home. They will be rescued.”

If you are in doubt of their power, don’t be, because Iboi says all their revelations will come to pass as it did with the 2011 general elections when they told Ibrahim Babaginda and Atiku Abubakar not to contest against President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

Other revelations by Iboi include the Emir of Kano Sanusi Lamido Sanusi should not rejoice yet, Governor Adams Oshiomole is standing on a shaky ground, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will be disgraced and President Jonathan will win the 2015 elections.

        Well, if we have greedy whoremongers in power who never exhibited half a percent of the sense required to hold political office in the first place…. of course, Nigeria will continue to burn and burn and burn and burn. It’ll burn until you elect the right leaders and say an emphatic “No!” to corruption in every form.

        Let’s not blame God for our lackadaisical attitude to progress.

      • Ona July 20, 2014 at 9:31 pm

        Emmm @ Mzsociallyawkward are u saying that “almighty god” is not almighty to save his own people from the hands of mere mortals aka politians, boko haram? Why worship such a god then?

      • Mz Socially Awkward… July 21, 2014 at 11:56 am

        I see what you tried to do there… and below… unfortunately, I’m not going to bite :-)

        Except to say this – the greatest gift which God gave human beings is the power of choice. “Choose ye this day…” – and although we revel in the ability to wield that power any which way we please, there’s always the nagging complaint thrown in now and again, “but … if He’s truly God, why won’t He save me from my drug addiction? Why can’t He stop me from cheating on my wife? Why, oh why, can’t He just come down and deliver us Nigerians from our joyous devotion to corruption?” Must be a heck of a job listening to millions of humans griping at will…

        He hasn’t, can’t and won’t stop being the Almighty God simply because you or me have made bad choices but it’s only human to always find a reason to blame someone else for those, abi? :-)

        @Ona

      • Ona July 20, 2014 at 9:27 pm

        Lol @ the ignorance. Christians are very notorious for belittling every other religious beliefs. Nne baba lawo/idolatory is not the same as Witch-craft tho. There are thousands, if not millions of religions out there and everyone thinks theirs is superior.lol. At least i commend non-african cultures for being true to their original religious beliefs. Unlike Africans that ditched their own to adopt a white man’s religion which was used to enslave them. They used the same bible u swear by to validate their “right” to enslaving u. Till date, most of them think u’re subpar. It am also amused when i meet blacks that are mormons when mormonism clearly sees black people as subpar. In their bible, blacks aren’t allowed to have any leadership roles and they believe that blacks were descendants of lucifer.lol. I wish people will research more and learn about what they were brainwashed…ooops….taught to believe in from birth. Have u ever wondered if u’d be a christian in ur parents were islam?? Ngwa think!

    • African Realist July 20, 2014 at 4:33 pm

      Thank you!

    • Mz Socially Awkward… July 20, 2014 at 8:38 pm

      The dark arts were also the religion of those you refer to as the “owners” of Christianity (& to correct your erroneous assumption there, the only owner of Christianity is the owner of the Church – Jesus Christ). So, regardless of skin colour, those who’ve left the darkness to embrace light haven’t a darn thing to act brand new about. There’s a good reason why whatever our forefathers practised – the human sacrifices, the belief in the evilness of twins, the inability to speak directly with their gods – hasn’t endured successfully throughout the ages. :)

      • Ona July 20, 2014 at 9:42 pm

        As much as u may try to deny it. Christianity is a foreign religion. It is a subset of Judaism. Jews refuse to accept jesus as their savior (and are still waiting for their messiah)…that is the only difference. Nowhere in the bible was anyone with ur features described. Infact enslavement of u and ur people was clearly encouraged….in addition to other shocking acts that christians today like to deny claiming it was in the “old testament”….meanwhile “god is the same yesterday, today and forever”. Darkness to light? Thats from ur own perception my dear. Other religions may also perceive urs as dark….they were raised to believe that theirs are superior just as u were raised to perceive urs as “the light”. In addition, are u ok with the fact that ur ancestors or even people as recent as ur grandparents will go to hell?? as they didnt believe in JC? Or are u going to try to explain it away that God will judge them differently when it is nowhere in the bible that such special treatment will be given to any unbeliever? Do u also truly believe that u will be the bornagain christian u are today if ur parents were of another religion? Or do u suppose that u are “one of the lucky few’ destined for heaven while billions of others who were raised under other religions can burn in hell….even tho they never asked to be born into another religion and brainwashed into believing what they believe in?

      • Kay July 21, 2014 at 3:54 pm

        ONA, gbammest! Do you have twitter, I want to follow your thoughts lol. Christianity is only so popular because the sect managed to convert a Roman Emperor (Constantine) who promoted it.
        The religion of our forefathers is not the same as the witchcraft the Europeans practised, people worshipped the phenomena that were strongest in their area ( sun, moon, darkness, Sea, wind, Rock, Rain) and that just depends on geo location. Religion is a response to phenomena we don’t understand or control.
        The reason our forefathers’ religion didn’t last? The Christians had better weapons.

    • Leke July 21, 2014 at 10:13 pm

      Exactly you are correct… Finally some one with an intelligent reply.

    • Obi July 23, 2014 at 2:59 am

      Ona, in reference to your comment about our forefathers burning in hell … A true Christian will tell you that each is judged according to the light they received. If all my great grandfathers knew was the ways of the ofo-na-ogu, and they held unto it strongly, treating their fellow men with fairness and respect, why would I condemn them to hell?

    • Idak July 23, 2014 at 5:27 pm

      Ona, I am replying to one of your posts below. Unfortunately there is no reply button to it as it is nested in another reply.
      I appreciate a great deal of your argument. However, you are also falling prey to what you accuse religious (I prefer the term faith inclined) folks of. You are alluding to the superiority of your belief or lack of it. Have you ever wondered that you may be wrong and Christians right? Or Muslims right? The same superiority of your agnostic belief is similar to what Christians/Muslims/etc exhibit in their beliefs.
      A faith based belief is exclusive. It can only be all inclusive when you are not fully convinced or convicted.

    Nigerian christians have fasted and prayed. Even Nigerian moslems have done same. Yet, it seems God is vexacious of them. If this naija association can liberate us from this BOKOMASACRE then I will make a better choice. No time….

  • Gistyinka Blog July 20, 2014 at 6:54 pm

    Hmmm

  • Tony July 20, 2014 at 7:45 pm

    @Cinderella, just a word of advice. God’s time is the best. When we pray we are keen to give God dates on which we expect feedback. This is not right. The Almighty God knows everything before it even happens. He let the Israelites to suffer in Egypt and when it was time He disgraced pharaoh and the Egyptians unimaginably.

    @Ona, it is this same so called religion that has many people suffering under generational curses, failures and stagnation in life. Suffering from the witchcraft of so called ancestors. Christianity is for all those who believe in Christ. God gives freely, no one borrows from God and His word. So please drop the cliche and take several seats.

    No matter what, we can never turn to the devil for solution. Satan is never against Satan, a terrorist and a killer is same as a witch and a wizard. It is the same association. For those waiting to see black magic, i wish you all the best. Lets never get tired of praying because God never gets tired of answering.

    • Ona July 20, 2014 at 9:48 pm

      Emmm but i also know hardcore born-agains that are “suffering under generational curses, failures and stagnation in life”, so how do u explain that one? Bornagains giving their hard earned money to their pastors who drive and live luxuriously while they live in penury with false hopes from their pastors that they will one day also live luxuriously. Y’all are wanna kill politicians meanwhile u didn’t have to give them ur hard earned money directly and watch them buy numerous private jets and mansions with ur OWN hard earned money. No be broad day robbery? Original 419?? Abegiii

      • Tony July 21, 2014 at 5:07 am

        Ona just to clarify not everyone who calls themselves Born again is truely born again. Since you are an open minded person you sure read the bible and Christ Jesus made it very clear that not everyone who calls my name would enter the kingdom of heaven. Anyone who is truely born again is free from all generational curses and stagnation. So if you are still experiencing that, then the devil is still in control. God is mighty and no one challenges Him and He has promised greatness for His people.

        There is no sugarcoating. Witchcraft is evil and should not be compared to other religion. Any religion that has evil practices as part of directives from their god is evil. Check out definition of witchcraft -magical things that are done by witches : the use of magical powers obtained especially from evil spirits.

        So if a christian, muslim, hindu or whatever is doing something evil, its not because the bible or Koran instructed them to do so, its evil powers that are in control. We are misplaced priorities to the extend that some people now try to hail witchcraft. I now understand why evil looms in the Nigerian air.

        Whoever is not using evil means to achieve a good thing is doing the right thing.

    • PurpleiciousBabe July 20, 2014 at 10:24 pm

      Yup….
      i also think humans have brains to think and act right…
      BH is a sponsored act so prayers directed to the roots…..

    • Leke July 21, 2014 at 10:30 pm

      Obviously you have been brain washed beyond reason… The bible is not a book of history .. And presently the same Israelis that you speak of are killing millions of innocent Palestinians… And stealing many of nigeria’s resources… Is that the way of God.. People like you only believe what you are fed. You are no a critical thinker… Christianity doesn’t not rescue one from despair and traditional religion doesn’t put one into despair. Despair is a fact of life. That is the truth God made despair for man to learn to endure. In your mind Europe + white man + Jesus = good … And Africa + Blackman + tradition = bad… Your perception has been guided by western societies plight to make Africans feel inferior. You are a product of indoctrination and self hate.

      • Tony July 22, 2014 at 3:55 pm

        @Leke, If reference was being made to me then take note i am not brain washed. I have clearly stated the Israelites like an example from the bible because they were considered God’s chosen race. As for Killing and bombing Palestinians it is not the bible that has asked them to do so. People need to take responsibility for their action and stop linking it to Christianity or Islam. Boko Harram is considered and islamic sect however the Koran did not instruct them to kill and loat.

        Coming to your point of critical thinking. I doubt how you think critically. Despair has never been God’s destiny for man so i doubt if you even read the bible. God’s plans for man are to bring prosperity and not destruction. It is only the devil who is out to kill, to steal and to destroy. If you feel belittled by European culture or whatever you call it, then please do not speak English because that is not your language it is as borrowed as the Christianity you crave much to hammer on. You have brought ur frustrations of European domination into an argument all in the name of religion.

        Witches and Wizards or whatever they call themselves are all agents of evil, i would never accommodate such crap because of some misplaced feeling of inferiority as you choose to put it.

    What is the difference between the bloody rebellious cultist insurgency of ‘Boko Haram’ and witchcraft?

    1 Samuel 15:23
    For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry… (King James Bible).

    Matthew 12
    25… “Every Kingdom that is divided against itself will be destroyed and every house and city that is divided against itself will not stand. 26 And if Satan casts out Satan, he has been divided against himself; how therefore will his Kingdom stand? (Aramaic Bible in Plain English).

  • kittykat July 20, 2014 at 9:08 pm

    To be honest @Ona our forefathers were not witches and wizards at least not mine. Yes we had different religious beliefs but it was not wizardry. People may not have worshipped the one true God but that is different to being a witch n practicing dark arts. Today we have Buddists, Seiks ect but they are not witches and wizards. Witchcraft is separate to religion in most of our cultures.

    On a practical note I am sure these terrorists probably do go to native doctors before performing these terrible acts. So if native doctors are ready to kill them that is very good in my opinion.

    I am a christian and I believe that God will be triumphant. But the practice of witchcraft is real in our society. We are not always fighting flesh n blood but powers n principalities. So if these principalities want to fight these ppl too fine. Although the master stakeholder in all things will prevail

    • Ona July 20, 2014 at 9:21 pm

      Witches and Wizards are not native doctors tho. Nigerians are fond of classifying them as one…along with satanism, illuminati, masonery…..all under one umbrella. Wicka is a form of witch craft and it is peaceful…not the way its portrayed in nigerian movies at all. I am agnostic, and since then i have been more open minded about about other cultures/religions and i have noticed that what i was taught about them were mostly lies. Yes, some witches/wizards use their powers for evil but majority use it for good. Not that i believe in any supernatural powers….but it seems like everyone thinks their own god/belief is superior and more miraculous, and in the process shun every other religion. As an outsider looking in, i find it amusing.

      And yes, not all our ancestors practiced witch craft. Some were more into idolatry, but witch craft still did exist back then.

      • Akpunwa Unlimited July 21, 2014 at 3:20 pm

        Na only you write wetin make sense here. I’m not promoting any kinda religion nor am I trying to demote any, but every religion has this belief that they’re beta than the others. Weda na 4 fadas, or 5 fadas make d winchee people try(joke to me tho), nobody else is trying to do ish. Just like you said, as I don grow so, I don put a couple things together and decided on what to even get time for, in terms of religion. Every day we go dey wayo ourselves for naija say “miracle” miracle one thing. I neva see person wey fit xplain 1 to me. Do you know/have a friend relative wey no go through rehab, was on a wheel chair, and just stood up and walked, jumped and all that crap we see on tv? I don’t, and neva met anyone who has. I envy naija preachers though “gettin’money”.

      • Stephanie-Feld July 21, 2014 at 5:46 pm

        I absolutely love the series of comment you dropped on this posts. You couldn’t have put it any better. Nigerians have this mentality of wanting other folks to have the utmost respect of what they have chosen to believe in but find it difficult to grant the same respect to someone that has a belief that strongly differs from theirs.

        Free thinkers like you make my day.

    This is what happens when the church doesnt wake up to their responsiblities. Now we have witches and wizards fighting for the course of nigerians and christains.how many churches have been burnt.how many christains killed..ppastors seem content with it as long as it doesnt get to them or their wards.pastors cant speak against the govt or for the people. .but witches and wizards have taken up the fight..am ashamed.our case is critical.

    • Tony July 21, 2014 at 5:13 am

      @Kay, Lets put our trust in God. He is Supreme. The problem we all face today is we put our hopes and trust in Pastors, ignoring the fact that they are human and some of them are not even called by God to serve Him. However there are true men of God, and when they are praying they are not supposed to sound trumpets that they are praying for the nation.

      i believe God has a time. When you pray and your prayers are not answered does it mean God has not heard? No.. He knows best and what you maybe asking for is not right at that time. Imagine the Israelites in the bible were the choosen race but they travelled through the desert for years. Moses who led them out of Egypt did not even see the promise land.

      Trust me please. God knows everything. We just need to stay steadfast. because the same complains we give each day, it is like we are saying, God is not existing, else why are these things happening. It would be fine. Pray persistently.

  • Fhil July 21, 2014 at 7:46 am

    It’s a serious joke! since when did devils start casting out devils. Even if all the witches & wizards in the world joined voice and force to fight Boko, it will only be as effective as all the star screwdrivers in an electricians workshop ganging up against all the plain screwdrivers. They’re all tools in the same workshop, serving the same master – the devil. They can only fool ignorant people. They’re just looking for publicity to win more members and decieve many. Do not forget that fundamentally, “the devil is a liar.” our Lord Jesus said so Himself.

    • Morgaine July 26, 2014 at 11:40 am

      Witches don’t worship the devil. The devil is a construct of Abrahamic theology. Witches honor gods and spirits that are different from yours, that is all. Our religion is as valid as yours.

    @ Cinderella, God works in mysterious ways. in just one minute he can change the fate of this country. never let your faith waver, its the only weapon you have against the devil.

  • Leke July 21, 2014 at 8:37 pm

    Fools are funny…If the witches and wizard want to fight… let them…by christians saying they serve a different God they are implying that there are 2 Gods…if these witches and wizards have the decency to apply action where it is needed then let it be..Nigerians love to run to white jesus or white European ideology to solve problems…for all of the christian dey for nigeria …nigeria still dey suffer..and if you know history Nigeria began to suffer when western religion arrived…and those are facts not opinions … there is Only one God…..we Africans believed God before the arrival of western religion….so who can say there way is better then another..however God helps those who help them selves so if these witches are taking action will God bless their plight.

    • kittykat July 22, 2014 at 8:51 am

      @Leke @Ona @Cinderella Christianity is not exactly a white man’s religion it was started in the middle East and Africans feature heavily in it. The Queen of Sheba (ethiopian), large references to Egypt, Noahs descendents, Ham and Cush ect ect

      Secondly witchcraft is not a traditional religion, witchcraft is very often the practice of satanism and the use of dark powers. Satanism and witchcraft are not based on the premise that God doesn’t exist but that you want to be in league with Satan and all of the lesser demons, powers n principalities. Even the bible doesn’t say that the devil has no power he has a huge amount of power on earth n some ppl prefer this route. Witchcraft is and has been practiced throughout the world so it is no more African or traditional than Christianity. Why though have witches throughout the world and throughout history been thought to be evil and put to death. If witchcraft was positive cultures would have embraced it but this isn’t the case anywhere

      • Tony July 22, 2014 at 3:59 pm

        KittyKat, Thanks very much for the enlightenment. i wish there could be more people like you on this forum.

      • Faleke July 22, 2014 at 8:37 pm

        I agree with your points .. However those aspects of Christianity are not seen in Nigeria. Knowledge of Christianity’s true origins in Kush/Ethiopia and it’s being an offspring of ancient Egyptian and Kabbalic philosophy are not what’s being perpetuated Nigeria… In Nigeria Christianity has been used as a oppressive tool for the masses to forgo and destroy there own culture in order to live up to the ideals of the west. “A river that forgets it’s source will not flow a tree that forgets it’s roots will not grow”.

      • kilted44 July 30, 2014 at 4:40 pm

        It seems as if you know nothing about Wicca it the practice of witchcraft, so as a Religious Studies degree holder let me correct you. There are many religions that practice magick, and no they do not deal with the devil. Also there are ethics in using magick, first do no harm, as well as what you put out into the world will come back to you. Calling it “dark arts” is offensive and incorrect. 99% of the time magick is used for good. The way this group is using their beliefs is admirable as I would hope all faiths would. I for one will perform a binding in hopes that it will help prevent more violence from occurring in that region. Hope this info helped expand your view on various pagan traditions and I suggest you read more about them. May God and Goddess bless your life journey.

  • step77 July 21, 2014 at 10:09 pm

    @ ona – Our God is a just and merciful God and we all will have to answer to God for what has been revealed to us -as I have come to understand it to him who much has been revealed, much will be expected, so let those who have ears listen and act right …

    Read:
    ACTS 17:16-34 ( excerpts below)

    16 While Paul was waiting for them in Athens, he was greatly distressed to see that the city was full of idols. 17 So he reasoned in the synagogue with both Jews and God-fearing Greeks,… 19 Then they took him and brought him to a meeting of the Areopagus, where they said to him, “May we know what this new teaching is that you are presenting?
    22 Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: “People of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious. 23 For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: to an unknown god. So you are ignorant of the very thing you worship—and this is what I am going to proclaim to you. 24 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. 25 And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. 30 In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent. 31 For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to everyone by raising him from the dead.”

    and feel free to read these to supplement:
    Matthew 12: 41-42
    Luke 12: 46-48
    1John 5: 17-19
    Matthew 21: 28-32
    2 peter 2:21
    James 4;17
    Matthew 8: 10 -12
    John 9: 35-41

    Stop quoting the bible that only make relevant points for ppl who believe in the bible. The writer of the bible was not here when God created earth… The bible hasn’t been here since man was created nor since God created the universe.. It is a man made book…

  • Leke July 22, 2014 at 1:55 am

    You people think its crazy to believe in traditional medicine,,.. but you dont think its crazy to believe the almighty God who created the Universes had HUMAN son ..a white guy that lived in the middle east lol… hahaha lol in that case does God only care about humans? why didn’t he have a son that was a tree? does God not care about other life?? only human life?? God is far greater then any of us understand…Christians do not own the rites to God..The same God gave us all life ..and did not create us as sinners but as beautiful creation… and as equals to all other forms of life…that is what traditional religion shows us.

    • Tony July 22, 2014 at 4:12 pm

      @Leke, are you part of this association? It appears you are. Since you were there when God created the world and in essence no other scripture matters but yours (traditional religion) kindly tell us what traditional religion constitutes. How can you compare humans to trees? Did a tree give birth to you? God created Man in His image and gave man dominion over all the other creatures (Animals and plants) and you ignorantly go about asking irrelevant questions?

      In normal scenarios, i would ignore comments like yours, but looking forward on your posts, you do not even have a premise on which you stand.

      • Faleke July 22, 2014 at 7:35 pm

        Man does not “own” anything. Can man tell it when to rain.. Being able to destroy something does not constitute dominion. Can man control the sun that gives the trees life? You your self rely on trees and animals for sustances. We are apart of Gods creation we are not above it. You are hardly equipped to clash wits… I promise. All of your references are judeo-Christian. I promise you will be out matched. Let the facts be what they are.

      • Faleke July 22, 2014 at 7:58 pm

        What does me having a premise pertain to this article…the article presents an issue and all of the comments that follow are concerned with the topic presented. My personal beliefs are irrelevant as are yours. The problem is that many of you Christians feel you have the onus to make moral and religious judgements based on your own scriptures. I am a well read African student of anthropology and I understand that cultural relativity shows us each culture..(Which include religions) has it’s on traditional methods of answering questions of existence. God is not white nor black man nor animal ( in my own humble opinion) but is far greater then you and I can place in a book. Each group of people has a traditional a religion which fits there needs. If God wanted us all Christian or all white or all uniformed in expression and belief than we would have been created in that way.

      • Leke July 23, 2014 at 12:34 am

        @ tony… Lastly I will say your limited and narrow minded “knowledge” of the bible serves as no contender in a realm of modern perspectives that are now learning to embrace all view points of Existence…nor is your “judeo-christian” rhetoric profound enough to impress anyone who has studied various world religions….Yes.. I myself am a Nigerian Scholar who has thoroughly studied both eastern and western religions from bhudism, jainism,hinduism,to wicca, khabbalah,judeism, islam, various traditional religions including ifa and Orisa in my homeLand of Nigeria…. which I am Proud of … and yes Ive even studied christianity….I highly doubt Your knowledge expands beyond your own christian view points…i doubt you can quote another books besides the bible…..You’ve Never studied any other perspectives yet somehow you’ve manage to think your believes are superior to all others,,this small minded approach tends to be the approach that many christians take…..(as seen in this thread)…..The underlying theme in all religions is tolerance.,, There is one God who created and rules us all fairly and equally……As for you it would be in your best interest to expand your horizons and not be so minuscule in thinking…

        I aslo find it despicable that an African has to prove to other Africans …that the ways of there own Fore fathers are not evil…..to me it is no more then a grand display of self hate…

    • Obi July 23, 2014 at 3:10 am

      Jesus wasn’t white. Artists depict images to the best of their understanding. Hence, Caucasian images of Jesus, Mary, etc. And of course, since the most documented spread of Christianity is that of Rome to the world, we have white Jesus. Had it been my uncle painting Jesus (matter of fact, my uncle has a number of paintings of Jesus) … all of them reflect Jesus as a black man. But that really is not the point. In trying to educate the masses, you end up insulting them whether you really mean to or not. People tend to respond better when they are addressed better.

      • Leke July 25, 2014 at 7:27 pm

        I agree with you however it seems insulting traditional religion never holds a consequence…one can find plenty Naija movies where traditionalist will be depicted as evil and Christians will be the Heros that save the day… Some may find this sort of propaganda passive and harmless..but not me… It is easy to hurl insults at those who are traditional and no one cares… But when I defend the traditions of my forefather people ask for tolerance… That is double standard.

      • Leke July 27, 2014 at 12:10 am

        i agree with you.. but let me ask how many african depictions of jesus have you seen in nigeria…most of them if not all are European….it does something to a peoples psychology when the image of the God they worship is not made in there own image…as you guys say…

  • Tony July 23, 2014 at 4:19 am

    @Faleke, going to google and copying and pasting religions does not make you a scholar. Your opinion of my knowledge does not really matter so i would not debase myself by listing all what i know from experience and studies. I am a proud Christian who is open to every religion that preaches and practises genuine love towards one another and forbids the use of evil, and magic to attain any goal. Witchcraft aka traditional religion as you supposed scholar call it is NEVER something i would ascribe to.

    So because your fore fathers took part in inhuman practises such as the killing of twins, female circumcision, human sacrifices, all in the name of traditional religion makes it good. Such a pity… that tells me the kind of mindset you have. It is one thing to study anthropology and another to put it to good use. For you.. nahhh the latter is lacking.

    • Leke July 23, 2014 at 10:06 am

      Lol are you kidding me..I need not google anything…is it because I’m an African that you don’t believe I know about other religions … That’s insulting …it’s it because you don’t have knowledge that you believe no one else should? .. It’s rather laughable …. Perhaps it because you presume every African is as narrow minded yourself …(and I even believe at this point that you are not an African). The religions I stated above are among the most popular and commonly studied religions for any theology or cultural anthropology student……it just shows me what you don’t know…. for such common place religions to seem or sound nebulous to you as if they were googled assures me once more you are not equipped to clash wits…also….. With that…I would have you know that sacrificing has been apart of many cultures across the world as well as circumcision… Including female circumcision…anyway I am not here to sell you on anything.. The sun will rise tomorrow and the facts will remain. And lastly because you are not an African I know perhaps that you may not know that in Africa when people have real problems that need a solution most of them return to their traditional ways.. both Muslims and Christians alike… When they have real problems they come to traditional religion for results …every African on this forum knows I’m telling the truth…

  • Tony July 23, 2014 at 1:00 pm

    There you go again with baseless assumptions. Get down that false high horse of urs and stop talking about clashing wits. There is nothing witty in all ur posts. You keep ranting about being a scholar and none of ur arguements had a scholarly backing. Its all based on ur perception.
    You have serious inferiority complex and to say the least I have never come across an African who feels as low as urself but try to hide behind some mask of anthropology. I say you google and in response you assume I pressumed Africans are foolish. How gross?
    Since you are Public relations officer for Witches and Wizards proceed to mention how other religions turn to traditional ways in the midst of adversity?

    If you spend ur days and nights in the houses of Babalawos because ur forefathers did please dont drag all of us Africans to that destructive path. At no point in time did I say witchcraft is of African origin or is practised only by Africans.

    • Leke July 23, 2014 at 3:50 pm

      What in my argument is based on perception? I mentioned the fact that many religions use sacrifices and circumcisions? This is not perception my perception these are facts….. these include the judeo-Christian religions as well.. what exactly is non-scholarly about what I’ve mentioned? You are simply critiquing my tone but not the validity of my argument. You can “google” lol what I’ve stated and you’ll find that my argument is not “baseless”. Lastly growing up in Nigeria It has been my first hand observation that countless Muslims and Christians… imams and church pastors alike seeking out the help of babalawos for their issues. It is a fact …you don’t have to agree but most Africans know what I am saying is correct. That is not baseless I’ve seen it with my own two eyes……At this point were just going back and forth let’s just agree to disagree… But If ever you make your way to West Africa you may want to investigate what I’m saying for yourself…

    • Leke July 23, 2014 at 5:09 pm

      There was a lady in osogbo Nigeria who was in labor for 3 days straight .. She was in a hospital bed alongside another lady who had just died as she too was in labor and was waiting for help. Doctors did not know what to do and decided there was no other way but to do a surgery… The ladies family who were Christians decided at this point they should bring in a babalawo (traditional healer) to help. The babalawo used the traditional healing method and the baby was instantly delivered.. it was the traditional method that helped the lady deliver safely. If the argument is that “we have dominion over plants and earthly resources” why is using them to benefit one unreasonable. God gave us resources ..the most important being our “Ori” as we yoruba say.. Meaning our own divine nature and destiny… In order to make due in this earthly existence… On a historical note During the crusades Christian warriors killed many others all in the name of God. That attitude has continued today …more have died under the propagation of western religion then any others. Western religion began the notion that one should kill another or conduct war on masses in the name of God that is foolishness…

    • Leke July 23, 2014 at 9:53 pm

      On the other hand here is an article of some christian missionary…who was supposed to be spreading the “good word” to poor children in africa and instead he was raping them…but that too is not new… europe has been raping african for years… You are concerned with “witches and wizards” yet we have this guy raping disadvantaged children…christianity has a history of producing such characters.

    @Ona.. Thank You for telling him the plain truth. @tony talked about God’s time…(laughing), when is that? Maybe we have to wait for 430 years like the Israelites did in Egypt. If a God would allow his people to be killed in droves in places of worship consecutively even on a sabbath… Then to me such a ‘God’ is subsevient to the ‘god’ Africa was born into. And so my conclusion is “may the witches and wizard association of Nigeria bring a lasting solution to the Bokomarsacre…… In Jesus Name…. I say Amen.
