A mother has been accused of locking up and torturing her 13-year-old daughter over alleged witchcraft and demonic possession in Oron, Akwa Ibom State.

According to Child’s Rights and Rehabilitation Network (CRARN) the child identified as Mercy Effiong, was locked up in a dark toilet by her mother after their church prophet claimed that she was possessed by a demon.

It was gathered that Mercy who was deprived of food and hardly given the needed nutrition, ended up eating her own faeces at some point to survive.
