Humanist Association for Peace and Social Tolerance Advancement and its partner, Child’s Rights and Rehabilitation Network, have secured prosecution against one Michael Effiong, who tortured and abandoned his 10-year-old child, Usen Okon, after accusing him of sorcery or witchcraft. PUNCH had on November 26, 2014 published a story on Okon, who was thrown into Imo River, Ikot Abasi axis, Akwa Ibom State, by his aunt, Ekaenyene, with the hope that he would be drowned in the river.
