A 27-year-old man identified as Emmanuel (surname withheld) has lost an eye in his search for ‘spiritual sight’ to aid him win lottery games. 

According to the News agency of Nigeria, Emmanuel sought the aid of a witch doctor in Ishiagu village, near Ogwashi-Uku in Delta State to acquire special sight for lucky numbers. 

A friend of the victim, Osita narrated the journey of his friend which ended on the January 12, 2019 with the loss of his eye. 

“He went to see a juju man to help him acquire spiritual sight so that he could be wining lotto games, popularly known as ‘Baba Ijebu.’

“He once told me that he was worried that he had been playing lotto games without success,” Osita said.

Osita narrated that Emmanuel had sought a witch doctor who assured him he would get the sight he wanted. 

The witch doctor had then prepared some concoctions which he directed Emmanuel to ingest and apply on his eyes. 

Emmanuel had gone about his activities secretively until he started to feel pains in his eyes. This caused him to cry out. 

“He never told anyone what he did, but when he started feeling some discomfort in his left eye, he cried out.

“I heard about it from one of our friends; so, I went to see him, that was when he told me what transpired.

“He was taken to the hospital following a swollen eye, but no solution. Right now, he has lost his left eye,” Osita said.

An elder brother to Emmanuel, Justin, told NAN that the family is devastated by the incident.

“We don’t want to say anything about it. We are really shocked by Emma’s desperation. For now, we want to forget about the whole incident. He has his life to live,” Justin said.

NAN gathered from village sources that the witch doctor, whose name was not given, has since gone into hiding.
