The teenagers of the Ebbaken community in Boje, Boki local government area of Cross River State allegedly beat to death two widows named Mrs. Martina Osom and Mrs. Rose Akom after accusing them of being witches.

According to Vanguard, the event happened early on Saturday, August 2.

When the youths accused the women of initiating a member of the community into witchcraft, they were returning from early morning prayers, according to an eyewitness and a son-in-law to one of the windows who spoke on the condition of anonymity. Both women were devout Catholics.

“They met my mother-in-law within the Church environment. As it was her tradition to weed and clean up the Church vicinity every Saturday immediately after the Morning Mass.

The youths accused her of initiating a member of the community into witchcraft and she denied the allegation.

But they went ahead and beat her severely, ordering her to confess that she is a witch. But her passionate appeal to them that she was innocent fell on deaf ears.”he said
