Four individuals arrested for kidnapping of a suspected sorcerer

Police arrested four individuals in the municipality of Xá-Muteba, Lunda Norte province, accused of kidnapping a soba, which is alleged to be the cause of "excessive deaths in the family" for practicing witchcraft.


The information provided by the spokesman for the Interior Ministry in Lunda Norte, Rodrigues Zeca, shows that the aggressors were the victim's nephews, aged 50.

"The soba was held in captivity for 72 hours at the residence of one of the perpetrators, to later perform a ritual to receive the supposed spell," said Rodrigues Zeca, quoted by Angop.
