A 10-year-old boy was allegedly buried alive by suspected occultic men in Ngwo, Enugu State.
This was supposedly discovered as a result of a three-day fasting and prayer crusade organised to cleanse the community of evil.
Apparently, the boy had been abducted along Independence Layout axis.
He was found when a Catholic priest from Abia State, Reverend Father Modestus Chilaka, invited by elders to assist in cleansing the land, rescued him.
Although the police claim not to be aware of the incident, the traditional ruler, Ogwugwu Ebenebe 1 of Ameke Ngwo, Igwe Jerome Okolo, said: “I was here and I saw a small boy who was buried alive as a sacrifice.
“The priest said there was such thing happening and they have buried a boy for rituals.
“He prophesied and said he will go there and rescue him. He went and they rescued the boy and brought him to this ground and everybody saw him.”
