In the quest to make quick money, Emmanuel Okachi, 27-year-old man, today lost his sight seeking spiritual power to win the lotto. This occurred as a result of substance he robbed on his eye in his quest for spiritual powers. It was revealed that the prepared substance by the native doctor was to help him see luck numbers and win lottery games. Despite the advice and awareness on the dangers of getting quick rich desperation among the youth.
The victim, Emmanuel, reportedly sought help from a witch doctor in Ishiagu village, near Ogwashi-Uku in Asaba, Delta State. He was given a concoction to drink and rob on his eyes to acquire spiritual sight.
However, a friend of the victim, Uzoka Osita, told the News Agency of Nigeria NAN on Sunday, in Ogwashi-Uku that the incident happened on January 12, 2019. According to Uzoka, he went to see a juju man to help him acquire spiritual sight so that he can be winning lotto games, known as ‘Baba Ijebu.’ However, Emmanuel was worried about not winning games and went an extra mile to step up his games.
Moreover, he never told anyone before embarking on the journey. Later when he started feeling some discomfort in his left eye, he cried out. After hearing what happened from a friend, I visited him and he opened up to me.
Though he has been hospitalized following a swollen eye, no solution. Right now, he has lost his left eye.
Victim’s elder brother, Justin Okachi, told newsmen that “the family is devastated by the incident. We are shocked and dumb-founded by Emma’s desperation. Emma has his life to live. For now, we want to forget about the incident.”
The information gathered by villagers revealed that the native doctor, whose name was not given, has since gone into hiding.
Besides, different folks have said different things about the boy and the story on social media.
