Self Confessed Witches And Wizards Are To Be Treated With Respect Not Killed- Edo High Chief

A high chief in Benin state has come out to explain why the state does not kill exposed witches and wizards. The high chief, Chief David Edebiri who is the Esogban of Benin Kingdom and the Odionwere (Head) of witches and wizards in Edo state, gave reasons to why witches and wizards who confess are not killed. This was revealed while the high chief was with the African  Bar Association after the latter paid him a courtesy meeting today, January 6. He said that the self confessed witches are treated with uttermost respect and rehabilitated back into the society after undergoing certain processes. He added that the powers to deal with them were given to him by the Oba of Benin. “Witches and wizards are my subjects. We deal with them in a decent way. There is no magical process in it. Once anybody confessed to be a witch, we send them to a home and a Chief is given the powers to disposes them. We take them through certain processes and they will become ineffective. They will go back to the society better persons.” Photo Credit: Getty
