Africa is a beautiful continent with many countries which have different cultures and religions. Its people have different beliefs which stem from a very diverse historical background. However, those who practice 'black magic' or witchcraft are seen as the evil of society and are mainly banished from their communities or even killed.
A Nigerian lady has revealed the struggles she faced when she was 10 years old after a pastor allegedly saw demons inside her.
In a post on twitter, she explained how her father verbally abused her after he was told by a local pastor that she was the cause of all his suffering. He claimed that the girl was the reason behind the collapse of her father's business because she was a witchdoctor.
"He said i was a witch because i had big eyeballs." She wrote in the tweet. She also explained how her mother had failed to protect her by persuading her husband to take her to the pastor.
The tweet caught the attention of many people with some commenting about the dangers of blind faith.
