John Friday Akpan, a 40-year-old man, has been apprehended by the Cross River State Police Command for allegedly accusing his own children, aged 12 and 6, of witchcraft and nailing them to a cross.

Akpan, who resides in Akpabuyo Local Government Area of Cross River, reportedly starved his children to a skeletal point after a native doctor told him they are witches.

It was gathered that it was a good samaritan who lived with them in the area that came to the rescue of the children, named Elisha and Esther Akpan.

According to South-South News, the children narrated how their father and stepmother locked them up in a hut without food and water for several weeks following the allegation.

It was reported that a native doctor identified as Dr. Okokon told Akpan that the two children were witches and were the ones bringing misfortune to the family and that was why he decided to punish them.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Irene Ugbo, who confirmed the report in a statement, said Akpan, his wife, and the native doctor would be charged to court and made to face the full wrath of the law.

Ugbo also said the children who looked emaciated and malnourished, said their father accused them of taking his money to their master in the witchcraft coven and therefore deserve no mercy.

Elisha who is the older child, narrated their ordeal in the hands of their father saying, “Our daddy said we are witches and locked us in a thatched hut for many weeks without food and water. Our sister, Peace, usually bring us water inside the hut when our father and our mother went gone out.

“My mother (stepmother), said the woman who used to live near our house in Akpabuyo gave us food and she put something (witchcraft spell) in the food and when we ate it, we changed to birds at night and took our fathers money to ‘our master’ in the witchcraft world.

“Our daddy said I took N4,000 while Esther took N2,000 to our master. This is something I don’t even understand. I am not a witch. My sister too is not a witch. We are children of God. It is because our own mother is dead that they do this to us.

“Our daddy nailed our hands to a cross because he says we are witches.”
