Witchcraft confession kills woman

Miss Joan Bangura of Alton Hope Road, Old Warf, Wellington, died Sunday November 27, shortly after listening to shocking confessions of which craft from her two nieces.

In an exclusive interview with Miss Bangura before her death, she disclosed that it started on Saturday night November 26th when she had, what she described as an awful dream. Her nieces Fatmata Bangura aged 6 and Marie aged 8, were driving a black Mercedes Benz to a destination she does not know and their appearance was quite frightening, she revealed.

She said she woke up upset, and therefore went to Church where she contacted one Pastor John Patrick and asked him to help interpret the dream. The Pastor, after praying together, admonished her to pray fervently because there are evil forces at work in her house.

Upon her return home, she said, "I called the two kids and asked them to tell me where they were driving to the previous night and their response was that they, had been invited to a festival of witches in a nearby village". It was at this point that the girls in tears, started confessing about how they caused their aunt to smell of bad odour whenever their uncle came to visit her.

They further told her how they were responsible for her backwardness, emotional stress, chronic financial constraints and the incredible bad luck she constantly experienced. These confessions sounded too much for the lady to bear so she dropped in obvious shock, and had to be rushed to a private hospital in the neighbourhood.

After receiving treatment, her condition returned to normal for a while, but sources say, she suddenly started speaking in strange tongues. Some of her neighbours, suspecting that she may be loosing her mind, requested that they carry her home. It was at her home that she suffered a cardiac arrest, which according to one Doctor, led to her death, a neighbour disclosed

Meanwhile, the whereabouts of the two confessed witches remain unknown since they fled the house.
