A commission looking into allegations of child witchcraft in the Nigerian state of Akwa Ibom has commenced today in the city of Uyo in the country’s southeast.The commission was set up last month by the National Agency for the Prohibition of Traffic in Persons and Other related Matters. As part of the commission’s regular proceedings, concerned members of the public are invited to make their own submissions.

Some evidence detailing child abuse was submitted by a coalition of national and international child rights advocacy organizations. Reports were submitted by the Child’s Rights and Rehabilitation Network as well as Stepping Stones Nigeria, organizations working to rehabilitate and care for abandoned children who have been accused of witchcraft.



By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.

    Make a PACT – Prevent Abuse of Children Today in Nigeria

    PACT (Prevent Abuse of Children Today) is a global campaign established by the UK-based child rights charity, Stepping Stones Nigeria and their Nigerian partner organisations. The aim of PACT is to bring long-term positive social change to vulnerable children in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria, particularly those at risk of witchcraft accusations, abuse and trafficking.

    With high levels of malnutrition, poverty, persistent violent conflicts and disease, increasing numbers of children in the Niger Delta are being forced to the streets putting them at risk of abuse, rape and trafficking.

    Witchcraft is often seen as the source of problems within Nigerian society with vulnerable children being the group most at risk of witchcraft accusations. Children stigmatised as witches face abandonment by their families and communities, torture, public humiliation, disgrace and even murder.

    To help end this terrible abuse we urge you to stand with us to Prevent Abuse of Children Today. There are lots of ways for you to get involved with the campaign, in particular signing our PACT, holding events and writing letters. Visit our website http://www.makeapact.org to sign the PACT and help us spread the word.

    Together, we are fighting for a time when all children in the Niger Delta are free from physical, sexual, emotional and spiritual abuse and their rights are fully upheld. With your help, we can make this vision a reality.
