Dramatic Scenes in a School in Migori After Pupils Allegedly Got Possessed With Evil Spirits (VIDEO)

Learning at Nyamunda Primary School in Migori County was temporarily disrupted after five pupils from the institution allegedly got possessed with evil spirits.

In a video shared by The Standard Media on their social media account, the pupils are heard screaming on top of their voices as another male of older age presumably a religious leader is trying to exorcise the evil spirits.

Speaking to the press, the school's headteacher Taabu Kiboko said that learning could not continue in the institution because of the wailing and screaming that emanated from the class the girls were kept in.

“We started noticing peculiar behaviour from the young girls on Thursday (September 17). However, we were unable to continue with our normal activities when the situation got out of hand,” he said as quoted from the video.

He further added that all the pupils were sent home to call their parents to help in resolving the unusual situation. He promised that plans are underway to bring everything to normalcy.

The school's board chair, Timon Ogolla, said that they have never had a situation like that in the recent past but through the help of the church sponsoring the school, the same will be brought to control. He further asked parents to be patient and wait for further communication from the administration.

However, parents faulted the school's administration saying there was no need of sending children home since the situation could have been handled professionally.

“The girls allegedly possessed by evil spirits could have been secluded from the rest and learning to continue as usual. Was there a need for this furore?” Zilper Otieno, a parent at the institution posed.
