Seven ‘Witch Doctors’ were brutally murdered in Papua New Guinea, and police believe they were killed and partly eaten by a ‘cannibal cult’ in the jungle. It is thought that the cult members ate the witch doctors’ organs because they thought that it would give them supernatural powers and become ‘bulletproof’.

According to reports the 29 cult members, made up of men and women ate their victims’ brains raw and made soup from their penises. Madang Police Commander Anthony Wagambie said: “They don’t think they’ve done anything wrong; they admit what they’ve done openly.” He believes that the victims practiced “sanguma”, or sorcery. Also Anthony Wagambie believes that they had been extorting money and demanding sex from poverty-stricken villagers for supernatural services.

It’s also thought that there may be between 700 and 1,000 cult members across several villages in the remotest parts of Papua New Guinea’s northeast interior. Many of these members could have eaten human flesh; cannibalism is part of the traditional culture in those regions and in the past throughout Papua New Guinean. Human flesh was known as “long pig,” it is thought that isolated regions still practice cannibalism which the recent arrests prove. However Wagambie, 36, said he had never heard of a previous case of cannibalism in his lifetime.
A report in the National a Papua New Guinea publication stated that 28 men and women appeared in a Madang court on Tuesday. There are no details about the 29th suspect. According to Police Commander Anthony Wagambie all suspects were charged with willful murder, which is punishable by death. Police stated that they will gather more witness statements before pressing charges linked to the cannibalism allegations.
The Police Commander stated that four of the seven victims were murdered last week, and no remains had been recovered. He said: “They’re probably all eaten up.”

Sad to hear things like this still happen in modern day. So many negative reports in recent time from Papua New Guinea.

Cheat In Exams And Go To Jail For 5 Years-FG

Say No To Exam Malpractice:Example of student engaging in cheating via her laptop
The Federal Executive Council has approved the amendment to an Act of the West African Examinations Council, part of which will make culprits of examination malpractice to be liable to five-year jail term or N200,000 fine or both.

The Minister of Education, Prof Ruqayyat Rufai, announced this in Abuja on Wednesday while briefing State House Correspondents on the outcome of the weekly FEC meeting. She addressed journalists in company with her counterpart in the Health and Environment ministries, Onyebuchi Chukwu and Hadza Mailafia, respectively.

Rufai said the decision of the meeting, which was presided over by President Goodluck Jonathan, was to “give effect to the revised convention of WAEC, 2003 in Nigeria.”

She said the Council had subsequently directed the Ministry of Justice to take further necessary action on the subject.

The 2004 Act, “empowers WAEC to take disciplinary action against those who have committed both the offences and penalties for illegally using examination papers and leakage of examination papers.”

Section 19(1) of the Act reads in part:
 “Such candidate shall not take or be allowed to take or continue the examination; in addition, he shall be prohibited from taking any examination held or conducted by or on behalf of the Council for a period of two years immediately following upon such contraventions.
“If a candidate aforesaid has already taken any papers at the examination, his result therefrom shall be cancelled.
“In addition, the candidate may be prosecuted and if found guilty, shall be liable on conviction to a fine of N200, 000 or imprisonment for a term of five years or to both such fine and imprisonment.”

The sub-continental examination body was established in 1952 following the acceptance of the Jeffery Report by the then colonial governments in Gold Coast (Ghana), Nigeria, Sierra Leone and the Gambia and later joined by Liberia in 1974.
