Police Arrest 3 Native Doctors, Housewife Over Suspected Charms


Determined to eradicate all forms of crimes, detectives at the Delta State Police Command, Asaba have arrested three suspected native doctors and a housewife over their alleged involvement in the discovery of substances suspected to be charms buried at a popular church premises.
Reports said trouble has been brewing in the popular Pentecostal church (name withheld) along Abraka road, Asaba after some of its members allegedly confessed to be witches and wizards thereby creating problems in the church.
DSP Celestina Kalu, Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, confirmed that the detectives arrested the suspects after a tip off adding that the alleged witches, during their confessions, opened cans of worms, especially on how they allegedly hired the native doctors to do the damage in the church.
It was gathered that trouble started when the alleged witches and wizards were suspended from their positions as deaconesses and elders in what was said to be a suspicious involvement in the death of a member’s daughter.
This, sources said, did not go down well as they allegedly vowed to frustrate the efforts of the pastor as well as ensure the desolation of members in the church.
Speaking further, the PPRO said upon interrogation, the suspects, who are currently helping the police, confessed to the crime, saying they were hired by members who allegedly confessed to witchcraft.
She said that the suspects were taken to the premises where they exhumed the buried substance suspected to be charms.
Speaking to LEADERSHIP Sunday, the pastor in charge of the church, who did not want his name in the print said, “We fasted when things became very funny in the church and in less than two weeks, some members whom we had suspended from positions, confessed to evil acts”, adding that the matter was reported to the police, who upon the report, swung into action.
