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.

In what appeared as a clue to the mystery surrounding the suicide act by a part-two student of Babcock University, 19-year-old Verishima Unokyur, his mother, Patricia, on Friday said her son couldn’t have done such to himself without external influence.
The mother, who was pensive and heart-broken, told some sympathizers who came to console the family in their home in Ewu Tuntun, Mafoluku Oshodi area of Lagos that her son never gave her any trouble while alive. She also disclosed her notice of his extremely reserved and shy nature which gave her concern. She said sadly, ‘‘Why would my dear son commit suicide? He cannot do that. I know him. He was manipulated and God will fight for us. I will forever love my son. I know he was too reserved. I forced him to talk to me. I asked him if he was facing any threats anywhere or he didn’t like the school he was attending but he said no. Since he entered the university, his reserved nature got worse. He was neat and obedient. He is a son I wish to have again and again.’’
Verishima, who hailed from Benue State and was studying Social Work at Babcock, committed suicide in their apartment after the New Year when his mother, who works with the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, was away on night duty and his younger brother, Asor, was asleep.
SUNDAY PUNCH learnt that the deceased’s mother is a widow who has not remarried since the demise of her husband about 15 years ago but dedicates her time to the care of her two boys. A source close to the family who refused to be named said the woman created time for her kids by taking them out most times and also frequently visited Verishima in school.
