Nigeria introduces law to protect 'witch' children

Nigeria's Akwa Ibom state has introduced legislation that would make accusing children of witchcraft illegal, according to Al Jazeera.

In the past, zealous church ministers have ostracized children from their communities by labeling them witches. The children become pariahs, often suffering brutal treatment. In some cases, young children are abandoned. .............

Found this:

Maguzawa, the animist religion, was practiced extensively before Islam. In the more remote areas of Hausaland Maguzawa has remained fully intact, but as one gets closer to more urban areas it almost totally disappears, appearing occasionally in the folk-beliefs of urban dwellers. It often includes the sacrifice of animals for personal ends, it is thought of as illegitimate to practice Maguzawa magic for harm. What remains in more populous areas is a "cult of spirit possession" known as Bori which still holds the old religion's elements of animism and magic.
