An elderly man, Chief Phillip Ibekwe, has been caught planting charms in his brother’s house in Umuopara Ugiri, Imo State.
It was reported that after a thorough search, other padlocks were found in his house. On these padlocks, different names were tied to it, significant of tying their fortunes.
Soon after he was discovered, an irate crowd gathered around him. They compelled him to lose the padlocks, brandishing cutlasses and other weapons that spelled they meant to draw blood from him.
A threatened Ibekwe opened the padlocks one-by-one while sitting on the bare ground.
