Description DM2008072410:NIGED:SOCIAL:WITCHCRAFT:MAY 1964 The Confession of a witch Madam Fariyike prays on each day at Ajaye Apostilic Church. Prophet Ayodele also prays for her to ward off spirits of former witch circle. For 30 Years she practiced evil witchcraft. She flew in the night like a terrible bird, and brought death to 30 people. These are the claims of Salamo Fariyike, who confesses her past to Dapo Daramola. Thirty years ago, at the age of 17, a young girl was offered what appeared to her to be an ordinary delicious akara ball for breakfast by her dying grandmother. The girl gratefully munched the akara and thanked granny for her kindness. But far from being the ordinary delicacy which the innocent girl thought it was, she claims that akara ball turned her life upside down transforming her overnight from a pretty, kind-hearted, lovable girl to vicious, cruel, blood-sucking witch.
