A young boy has been rescued by a Danish aid worker, Anja Ringgren LovÃ©n, and her team after he was almost killed by his father over witchcraft allegation in Akwa Ibom.
Taking to her Facebook page on Wednesday, July 20, LovÃ©n disclosed that the boy was almost hacked to death by his father who accused him of being a witch.
She said he had been living in the bushes for months to hide from his father and was living off the meals he received from an old woman.
However, when the director of her orphanage facility received a distress call about the boyâ€™s condition, they immediately sprung into action and rescued him from the bushes.
The young boy who was left with a large scar on his head after the incident, is now safe and living in the facility called â€˜Land of Hopeâ€™.
