Africa's child witches

This is something I haven't heard about till now, child witches in Africa. This phenomena is not unique to Nigeria, but this is where most cases are reported. Many, however question whether these so called 'child witches' are real or whether it is just a fabrication, made up by pastors of fundamentalist Zionist churches. Parents of these so-called 'child witches' have taken the most atrocious steps to rid their child of evil spirits and demons, such as pouring acid down their own child's throat. Some say this phenomena occurred here, mainly because of poverty, superstition and lack of education.
