A self-confessed ‘witch’, Liyatu Michael has been beaten to death by an angry mob in Doka Village of Bauchi State.

Another victim identified as Keziya, who suffered a similar beating, is currently battling for life in an undisclosed hospital.

Trouble started for the two women after they allegedly confessed to be among those practising witchcraft that had “caused” many premature deaths and setbacks in the community.

The irate mob thereafter pounced on them in a bid to force them to confess more details of their alleged atrocities.

It was gathered that the youths were specifically angered that the duo were allegedly behind the grave illness of a young house wife in the community, identified as Yelkon.

“Yelkon has been bedridden and seriously sick immediately after she gave birth and we learnt that her illness was caused by the two women who confessed to have ‘tied her’ in the coven and said she would be sick until she dies,” a resident of Doka, who pleaded anonymity, said.

However, the Police in Bauchi said they have arrested four suspects in connection with the death of Ms. Michael, who is said to be aged 70.

The Police Public Relations officer (PPRO) of the Command, Kamal Mohammed told journalists that the suspects seized the deceased, Liyatu Michael, and another elderly woman whom they suspected of witchcraft in a house in the community ”and started beating them.”

“Report that reached the police indicated that on realising that one of the women had died, they took her lifeless body outside the room and dumped it in the backyard

“We have arrested four suspects in connection with the crime while some suspects are still at large.

“We are making effort to arrest them and bring them to justice. The four suspects would soon be charged to court for culpable homicide,”‎ he added.

Wow.  Nigerians and the shedding of blood.
CHILDREN have been BURNT ALIVE for STEALING food.
A 70 year old woman who is most probably suffering the pangs of old age - dementia - and nodding "yes" to ALL accusations thrown at her. This is sad. This is an embarrassment.
The country is VERY SLOWLY descending into ANARCHY.

I just hope ALL those who took part in her MURDER - were WITHOUT SIN and therefore ELIGIBLE to THROW THE FIRST STONE!!!!!
