middle-aged woman, who caused commotion at the Cappa Bus Stop in Oshodi, Lagos State last Friday, after eyewitnesses claimed she transformed from a bird into a human being, has died.
Some of the eyewitnesses, who claimed the woman had fallen off after hitting an electric cable as a ‘bird’ but transformed into a badly burnt woman upon landing, was alleged to have confessed to being a witch with metaphysical powers.Although policemen from the Mushin Division, Olosan, who raced to the scene and later took the woman away, was already unconscious before arriving at the hospital.
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Kenneth Nwosu, while confirming her death to PUNCH METRO, said the woman’s corpse had been deposited at a morgue.“Eyewitnesses said there was a bird which fell down and turned into a woman. So, a large crowd gathered round her. She was not attacked. Eventually, when the police got there, they rescued the woman from the surging crowd. But unfortunately, she died, and her body has been deposited at the Mainland General Hospital’s morgue”, Nwosu, a Deputy Superintendent of Police said.
Witchcraft or witchery broadly means the practice of and belief in magical skills and abilities exercised by solitary practitioners and groups. Witchcraft is a broad term that varies culturally and societally, and thus can be difficult to define with precision and cross-cultural assumptions about the meaning or significance of the term should be applied with caution. Witchcraft often occupies a religious divinatory or medicinal role,and is often present within societies and groups whose cultural framework includes a magical world view.
The concept of witchcraft and the belief in its existence have persisted throughout recorded history. They have been present or central at various times and in many diverse forms among cultures and religions worldwide, including both “primitive” and “highly advanced” cultures,and continue to have an important role in many cultures today. Scientifically, the existence of magical powers and witchcraft are generally believed to lack credence and to be unsupported by high-quality experimental testing, although individual witchcraft practices and effects may be open to scientific explanation or explained via mentalism and psychology.
According to Nigeria History and Facts on Twitter, Nigeria was at a point in time, the largest producers of palm oil in the world.
In a contrasting turn of events, however, the country has spent more than $3.2bn on the importation of Palm Oil during a period of ten years.
This shows how much things have changed over the years.
Iranian President, Hassan Rouhani’s brother has begun a five-year sentence after he was convicted of corruption, BBC News reports.
Hossein Fereydoun, who served as an aide to the president, was first arrested in July 2017.
However, he was put on trial in February this year on allegations of financial violations.
Hossein was convicted of “receiving bribes” in May 2019 and sentenced to seven years.
An appeal court decision later reduced the jail term, but ordered him to return any property that he had acquired illicitly and fined him an equivalent of $9m in Iranian currency.
Hossein’s lawyer told local reporters that his client entered Tehran’s Evin prison on Wednesday.
“This morning, Mr Fereydoun together with myself were present at the prosecutor’s office,” Hossein Sartipi was quoted as saying.
“After legal procedures were completed, he was taken to Evin prison and was admitted to the prison,” he added.
Fereydoun acted as a key adviser and gatekeeper to the president before his arrest.
The brothers do not share the same surname because Rouhani changed his to a word meaning ‘spiritual’ or ‘cleric’ decades ago after joining a seminary.
Rouhani had promised to curb corruption in the 2013 and 2017 presidential election campaigns.
