Skeptic News: Witchcraft lynching

20120714-171652.jpgA 70-year-old Nigerian woman, Mrs. Rebecca Adewumi, was, yesterday, lynched by a mob in Omuo-Ekiti, Ekiti State, over alleged witchcraft, even as the deceased family petitioned the police, asking for justice.

The 70 year old woman was asked to
undress to her underwear by the mob and asked questions under the influence of Obo leaf (a concoction said to make witches confess and die).

Nine days passed after the questioning when a group of young men arrived at her house. They poisoned her and then tortured her and viciously beat her.

Families lawyers have petitioned the authorities to arrest those responsible but they say they cannot as the lawyers were not there and no other witnesses have come forward.
