Lot of links at the full story, here's the tldr version:
The woman, named by The National newspaper as Kepari Leniata, 20, was reportedly tortured with a branding iron and tied up, splashed with fuel and set alight on a pile of rubbish topped with car tires.
That one happened 2 weeks ago.
Mrs Adewumi was accused of being responsible for the sickness of a local evangelist. She was dragged to the palace of the monarch, where she was forced to drink local concoctions. The concoctions were given to her to make her confess or die within seven days. But after seven days she did not confess or die. Subsequently local thugs stormed her house. They dragged her under the rain and flogged her. According to a family member, her attackers scrapped her hair with broken bottles and used a big scissors to cut her fingers, then placed her on a tyre and set her ablaze.”
That one in a different country the same week.
The "witch-hunting" is being funded in part by American Evangelical groups like the Liberty Gospel Church in Houston, who promote spokespeople who call for witch burnings and encourage people to identify their children as possessed. Also by the groups sending missionaries to New Guinea, Nigeria, Kenya (where it is FINALLY outlawed), and other countries, where it's made a teaching tool to convert locals to Christianity.Answer Question
