He Was Killed Because A Pastor Alleged That He’s A Wizard :- Mother Of Brutalized Boy Speaks Out

Mrs. Erueke John, the biological mother of late Joshua Zikeme, the 7-year-old boy, who was allegedly tortured to death at Akaba community in Yenagoa LGA of Bayelsa State, by his father and step-mother over allegation of witchcraft, yesterday, cried out that her son was a victim of a vicious father and not a wizard.

Mrs. John claimed that the allegation of wizardry by the suspects was based on a revelation from a church based in Yenagoa. According to her, “the church is a one room place of worship. They claimed they took my son to the place and they were told he was a wizard.”

She said her son was tied to a stake and savagely brutalised to death. The police had, Monday, arrested the deceased boy’s father, Idiesy Zikeme, and the step-mother, Eunice Zikeme, on suspicion of torturing the boy to death.

The deceased, according to security sources, was rushed to the Federal Medical Centre, FMC, dead with several bruises on his body, a development that raised the suspicion of the management, who promptly alerted the police, leading to the couple’s arrest.

Speaking yesterday, the 29-year-old biological mother of the deceased, Mrs. Erueke John, said though the boy was stubborn, he never displayed any sign of wizardry as alleged by the suspects.

She said: “They killed my son in cold blood. I was told the suspects used sharp objects to slice all parts of his body in an attempt to exorcise him. I left the father’s house while I was pregnant with the boy, because he was beating me and was also into illegal sales of hard drugs.”

Whenever you talk about men of God, both real and those fake ones who called themselves, somebody somewhere will attack your comments with their popular slogan “don’t judge” or “leave judgement for God” My take on this pls Nigerians be careful on who you Meet to lay hands on you for prayers for many sorcery and Magicans are now pastors in different churches
