A Chief Magistrate Court sitting in Song local government area in Adamawa has employed the services of a herbalist to obtain a confession from some suspects.
The incident occurred on Tuesday, November 3rd when the spiritualist, Garkuwa Sarkin Mayu, was invited to the court and used his charms extract confession from the suspects.
the accused Mallam Yusuf, Samaila Adamu, and Gaji Mallam were on trial for the alleged murder of a boy and also the bewitching of another for a year.
The suspects initially pleaded not guilty to the crime which made the court seek the services of Mayu. To extract the confession, Mayu ordered the supposed bewitched boy to lie down and instructed the accused to walk over him three times. After they did this, they began to confess to the crime and said they actually bewitched the boy but they removed the spell they cast on him.
