The witchcraft conference that was to hold in the University of Nigeria, (UNN), Enugu state, commenced today, Tuesday, November 26, despite heavy oppositions from the Christian Community in Nigeria.
According to Patrick Egwu, a journalist who is currently attending the conference, the venue was moved from its initial place to a bigger hall due to the high number of people in attendance as he estimated the number of people in attendance to be at around 500.
According to the report, the conference is now holding at the Princess Alexandra auditorium with those in attendance saying: “Amen” to an opening prayer.
It was gathered that the opening hymn of the conference was sung by the university’s Christ Church choir.
According to the journalist, “It was more like a normal church event, people calling Jesus and praying that the aim of the event should be achieved.”
He went ahead to say that the event banner no longer bears the word ‘witchcraft’ so as to reduce the opposition to the conference.
Egwu, however, noted that all the discussions at the conference had to do with witchcraft and nobody showed any objection as was earlier anticipated.
“One of the keynote speakers just finished presenting his lecture and (he) received a standing ovation. It was really interesting, people were clapping hands and enjoying the presentation,” he disclosed adding that he was attending to know more about witchcraft.
