A Nigerian man identified as Emmanuel lost an eye in his quest for spiritual powers from a witch doctor in Delta State, Nigeria, to help him see numbers spiritually that will win him lottery games.
According to a friend of the victim, Osita, told the newsmen that the incident occurred on January 12, 2019.
Osita said: “He went to see a juju man to help him acquire spiritual sight so that he could be wining lotto games, popularly known as ‘Baba Ijebu.’
“He once told me that he was worried that he had been playing lotto games without success.”
According to him, Emmanuel later sought the help of a witch doctor who assured him of spiritual solution.
Osita narrated how Emmanuel later went to the witch doctor who reportedly prepared some concoctions for him.
He said the witch doctor gave Emmanuel the prepared substance to drink and to also rub on his eyes.
“He never told anyone what he did, but when he started feeling some discomfort in his left eye, he cried out.
“I heard about it from one of our friends; so, I went to see him, that was when he told me what transpired.
“He was taken to the hospital following a swollen eye, but no solution. Right now, he has lost his left eye,” Osita said.
