THE INNOCENT WITCH
Throughout the drive to ughelli, i made
up my mind to confess and
tell the whole world about Mr ogoh and
his cohorts. Many other innocent children could suffer the same
fate as me if i don’t expose
I knew they would be consequences for
exposing their coven but i was
ready for anything. There would be no more death in my household.
Before leaving, i had sent a text to kelvin
telling him i loved him
and that i was grateful to him for showing
me how to live and dream.
I also told ada i would not be coming back. Even though she didn’t
know my reason for leaving, we cried
together and bade each other fare
As soon as i got to my village, the first
thing i did was to go to the church and pray. I was going to ask
God for forgiveness and commit
my spirit to God but when i got there, a
pastor was standing at the
entrance of the church and as soon as he
saw me he called my name. This was strange because i wasn’t a
member of that church when i was
in the village so it wasnt possible that he
knew me. He walked towards
me and i just stared, dumbfounded.
He told me he was pastor Paul and that while he was praying, God
instructed him to stand at the entrance of
the church and wait for a
young woman. He said God said he
should tell the young woman whose
name was Racheal to go and wait at home, for the lord would soon visit
I didn’t understand the message but i
decided to just go home and
wait for the lord’s visit. I thanked the
pastor and left the church after he prayed for me.
When i got home, my mother was
surprised to see me. She was so happy
and my other sibling prosper, who was
still living with my mother came
to take my suitcase to my old room. I told my mother that i missed her and
that was the reason i came
home. She believed me and cooked me
my favourite meal that night.
After bathing, i retired to my old room. I
took out the olive oil that i carried from warri and sprayed it
around the room. I covered
the room with the blood of Jesus, prayed
and then slept.
That night, there was no meeting.
