Ghost-like girl dumped in well by dad scared of witchcraft

A father who dumped daughter alleged to be a witch has been arraigned at a High Court in Nasarawa State.

This however prompted an arraignment at a High Court, where a witness Samuel Kuje, shared an account of how the victim, Jennifer, was recovered from the pit.

Prosecuting counsel, James Anata, confirmed that the event occurred on Friday, December 8, 2018.

“I first thought she was a ghost but when I asked who she is, she said she was Jennifer Ayuba from Gidigidi.

“I then ran to Gidigidi immediately to inform the head of the community, Mr. Ashila and four other persons; we all went back to my site and brought out the child from the well; then I called the police from B Division in Lafia to arrest the accused," says Kuje.

The father who sought to justify his action explained that he took the measure following a confession by his daughter who admitted responsibility for family misfortunes.

More revelations encouraged  presiding judge, Justice Rose Fuji, to adjourn the case until Monday, April 23, 2018.
