“The facts gathered reveal that on the June 15, 2022, Martha Akwango, one of the suspects returned from school while crying, after she got possessed by evil spirits. When she reached at their home, her three other female siblings, started praying over her, to cast away the demons that had attacked her,” said Enanga.
It is alleged that the three sisters, while casting out demons from their younger sister, attacked their father inside the home they shared, and beat him to death on June 15.
