Sulaiman, a former Imam in eastern Uganda, became a Christian in 2017 and led his two young children to Christ. In July 2018, Sulaiman’s son, then aged 11, and daughter, then aged 13, disappeared from their home.
On 16 September, police rescued Sulaiman’s daughter from a well-known witch doctor named Isifu Abdullah, known for human sacrifices.
Abdullah reportedly took the daughter as his wife. Her brother was not found by police and it is feared that he may have been killed in a ritual sacrifice.
“We are mourning for our son who is alleged to have been sacrificed,” Sulaiman said. “We are mourning with my daughter, who has been used as a sex object by the Muslim shaman.”
A local woman, said to be a radical Muslim, opposed Sulaiman’s conversion to Christianity. Locals believe this woman is behind the abduction and sale of his children.
Abdullah is one of many witch doctors who are known to sacrifice humans using children’s blood, tissue, or organs in the belief that it will bring protection or good fortune.

Ask the Lord to bring His healing presence to Sulaiman’s daughter. Pray He will help her to overcome all she has suffered.
Pray for justice for this family and ask God to bring comfort to those who mourn over this tragedy.
Pray the Lord will frustrate the plans of Isifu Abdullah and all others involved, so they will be restrained from perpetrating evil.
