Likita Manu: Niger Man Killed His 100-Year-Old Mother For Alleged Witchcraft
Shocking! Niger Man Killed His 100-Year-Old Mother For Alleged Witchcraft
A 40-year-old man from Niger identified as Likita Manu, has been arrested by the police after he killed his 100-year-old mother for alleged witchcraft. He is reported to have accused his mother of using witchcraft to kill his daughter, Magajiya.
The suspect then allegedly descended on his mother and beat her with a stick after the death of his daughter. Meanwhile, Manu’s father, Kwacha, 80, has also been detained for his role in beating up the victim.
According to Punch, Kwacha claimed that Magajiya was the ninth person that Kaiyo had allegedly killed through her witchcraft. He said:
“After killing my granddaughter, I could not just let her go scot-free, so I used a little dry stick to cane her on the legs while at the same time asking her why she killed her great grandchild and she just died.
“The case of my granddaughter is a well-known issue in our area to the leaders and the people and every effort we made to free the young girl all failed. She died on the way to the hospital at 8am, last week Thursday.”
Manu was quizzed on how he knew his mother was responsible for his daughter’s death. He said:
“We got to know through Magajiya, when she was sick. She cried and begged her great grandmother, Inne Kaiyo, to release her soul. And we all begged my mother to release her but she refused. I am also aware that my mother was a witch.”
However, Manu who claimed he was saddened by the loss of his mother and daughter, said he had accepted it “as an act of God.”
The police command’s Public Relations Officer, Abigail Unaeze, has confirmed the incident adding the matter will soon be charged to court.
