A suspected witch doctor is on the run for physically assaulting a local pastor in Bwona Gweno Cell, Laroo-Pec division in Gulu City accusing him of taking away her followers.
The suspect identified as Betty Aloyo aged 35, reportedly stormed a local yet unnamed church led by one Michael Oyugi at around 9:00am on Thursday, beat him up and destroyed his bibles accusing him of taking away her followers.
Aloyo is said to have unsuccessfully tried to stab the pastor with a spear which fortunately landed on Oyugi’s phone.
Alfred Otema, the Local Council One chairperson Bwona Gweno Cell said the suspect fled in fear of being arrested because she trespassed into the pastor’s home where he has constructed a temporary church.
Otema advised the pastor to report the matter to police adding that the suspect will be evicted from the area if found to be a witch.
Efforts to reach the suspected witch doctor and Pastor were futile as attempts to trace them were futile and they both have no known phone numbers.
