Authorities of the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) have withdrawn approval for the use of one of the centres in the institution (Energy Centre), for the first international witchcraft conference scheduled for next week.
Dr P.E. Ugwuoke, the director of the centre, made this known to the conference organisers, saying this was due to the opposition by Christian students of UNN and the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) against the conference.
According to Ugwuoke,the conference is inspired by B.I.C Ijomah of the Centre for Policy and Research and it is a pure academic exercise, not a meeting of witches and wizards.
“We are shocked by the uninformed reaction of Christian students and CAN”, he said.
