Bearing in mind that oath taking and use of voodoo are part of the control mechanisms used by human traffickers to control their victims, NAPTIP continously strives to dissipate such fears in the minds of the victims.

In line with this, the Igueben communities in Igueben Local Government Area of Edo State, comprising of Udo,Ebelle,Okalo,Ekpon. ,Ebhosa, Ugun and Amahor, among others, came together in an elaborate ceremony, under the leadership of His Royal Majesty Ehizogie Eluojierior I (JP), the Onogie of Igueben Kingdom and Okaigun of Esanland, Edo State, Nigeria, to place a curse on native doctors and juju priests and indeed anyone whosoever perpetrate the act of human trafficking, kidnapping and other social vices in Igueben LGA.

This is coming at the heels of earlier curses placed on human traffickers by His Royal Majesty, Omon’ Oba N’ Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, Ogidigan, Oba of Benin Kingdom, following the visit and request of DG, NAPTIP, Julie Okah- Donli, to the revered Benin monarch in February, 2018.

gueben LGA is endemic to Human Trafficking and many people within the LGA are traditionalists. Therefore, the positive step taken by HRM Ehizogie Eluojierior 1, (JP) is quite significant in the fight against human trafficking.

    Is the curse placed just for the cameras? If as claimed in this story most inhabitants of those communities are traditionalists, then they should have been gathered en masse and made to watch the ceremony and hear the”curse ” being pronounced. The expected crowd is not obvious in the photographs used here and it is doubtful the culprits would fear what they do not hear pronounced. And again, what is the deterrent employed for non-traditionalist human traffickers in that kingdom? Just thinking though!

    They have to start placing such curses on politicians and public servants who embezzles public fund, but in Nigeria, the spirits can even take bribes anyway..

    If those curses are potent, they had better extend it to looters, kidnappers, ritualists and herdsmen. Traffiking isnt the only force they need to contend with

    The reason why these evil act is thriving in our society is because of those fake and occultic native doctors and traditionalists who kept deceiving those young guys for their own selfish gain. If these fake traditionalist can be dealt with, punished, jailed and even face capital punishment, then our gullible youths will abandon their evil ambition about quick money syndrome.
