A Child’s Right and Rehabilitation Network (CRARN) has posted photos on its Facebook page of abandoned children rescued in Akwa Ibom.
The charity organisation whose based is in Akwa Ibom, said the children were branded witches and kicked out by their families.
The post read;
“Photos of children rescued this week after being abandoned by their families and ostracised from home even with their church dresses. Their parents even feel comfortable to say “they’re unwanted children.” Superstition, poverty and religious brigandage are the major combination that is fueling this avoidable epidemic”
