Thousands of stigmatized 'Witch Children' have found refuge at CRARN center, in Akwa Ibom. The children were branded as "witches" by church ministers and have been cast out by their families and shunned by society.
One of them is six-year-old Israel Effiong, from Ikot Uso Ekong, Eket, who was accused of being responsible for his father's illness. Fearing for his life, he ran away and hid in a bush for a year before he was rescued by Edoho,a volunteer with the organisation.
Edoho, himself is former child at CRARN Children Center. He now serves as one of the volunteers who rescue children to the centre.
"When my father became ill and taken to a hospital, my stepmom asked if I knew anything about his illness. I told her that I could not think of anything bad about my father because he's the supporting me," Effiong recounts.
"When his illness took a turn for the worst, my stepmom became angry with me.

Photo-the point at which Jesus was buried has been opened

Image
The stone shelf, which has for years been encased by marble, is believed by many Christians to have held the body of Jesus after his crucifixion.
Fredrik Hiebert, archaeologist-in-residence at The National Geographic Society, said: “ The marble covering of the tomb has been pulled back, and we were surprised by the amount of fill material beneath it”.
“It will be a long scientific analysis, but we will finally be able to see the original rock surface on which, according to tradition, the body of Christ was laid. ”
The stone slab is located in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem which is visited by hundreds of thousands of pilgrims every year and its ownership and maintenance is shared in a complex arrangement between the Armenian, Greek Orthodox and Catholic Churches.
It is currently undergoing restoration work after being damaged by many years of exposure to humidity from the condensation from the breath of visitors, and thermal stress caused by candles burning for hours ne…

According to reports gathered by Owngoalnigeria.com, former coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Philippe Troussier won the race to replace sacked Milovan Rajevac as coach of Algeria, after promising the FA that he will beat Nigeria.

Their next group game will be against Nigeria in just over three weeks, hence the FA resorted to appointing a coach who has experience of the African terrain in Troussier, who has handled Nigeria, Cote d’Ivoire, Burkina Faso, South Africa and Morocco, aside spells with various club sides on the continent.
Frenchman Troussier reportedly told representatives of the Algerian FA during interview for the job, that his knowledge ofAfrican football and Nigeria particularly will come handy in Uyo, when both sides …
