Why witch hunting, killing are increasing in Nigeria

I grew up in a community where people believed in witchcraft and occasionally I witnessed elderly women tortured or abused for allegedly perpetrating witchcraft. In 1994, I started the Nigerian Humanist Movement and made the campaign against witchcraft accusation and witch hunting one of my main priorities. With both local and international support, the campaign gathered momentum and today we have activists and affiliate groups that are working and campaigning to stop these horrific abuses in different parts of the country and continent.
