Chimamanda Adichie has become the face of feminism in Nigeria with her talks, interviews and most recently her book, Americanah. For a lot of self-identifying feminists including myself, she has made the topic interesting and one for our generation.

Helen Ukpabio, "Child Witch" Pastor Deported and Banned From Britain

Posted in: , ,

Helen Ukpabio is known in Nigeria and other circles as the Lady Apostle, but her apostleship is not to spread the gospel, but to liberate those under spiritual attacks. The unfortunate aspect of her message is that she targets defenseless children, and usually burdens then with the woes of their families, labelling them witches and asking their families to get rid of such children.

If those girls could still be going to school then it is safe enough to assume that there should be at least one reporter on ground that can give us accurate information.
