Despite pressure and stiff opposition from couple Christian Evangelical groups, spatre headed by CAN, organisers of the witchcraft conference have insisted that the event will hold as scheduled in UNN.

This was made known by the convener of the event, Professor Egodi Uchendu in a press statement on Monday.

Uchendu who said it is an erroneous to believe the meeting had been called off, rvealed that the conference is an academic and intellectual discourse that will benefit not just academias but also pastors and religious leaders.

She also expressed a gesture of invite to the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), and Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) and the general public to the academic session where papers, books and journals on witchcraft would be reviewed and discussed.

She said, “The subject of the conference is Witchcraft. That’s the topic of the academic engagement and NOT a gathering of witches.

“Church pastors discuss witchcraft regularly and preach against it all the time, drawing from their experiences during their training and in their ministries. I am sure the information from this conference and the research findings would assist them in their work for the gospel.

Surprisingly, some persons, erroneously concluded that only witches can discuss witchcraft. We are not witches. We are professors and scholars who are intrigued by this phenomenon of witchcraft. Our conference is a mere academic discussion where we shall review journals, information gathered over the years on the subject matter. That is what scholars do and this should not cause alarm.

“Several of the organizers of this conference are practicing born again Christians who preach the gospel and live by the gospel. I am personally aware of the stand of the gospel on Witchcraft. Since this is not a gathering of witches by witches, we are also allowed as scholars to discuss such topics. Our conference is all about the advancement of knowledge. The body of Christ generally, including CAN, will also benefit from our findings.

“The conference will hold as scheduled at Princess Alexandria Auditorium and Unity Hall, UNN, at 10:00 a.m. on the 26th of November, 2019

“I invite CAN, PFN and the entire public to attend this conference so that we can all share knowledge on this topic that is already generating some controversy.”
