In other news, a couple based in the UK has admitted to separately seeking the services of a witch doctor to kill each other.
The husband, identified as Baba Gamu, was the first to visit the witch doctor and request the death of his wife.
During a family meeting, he defended his actions by claiming that he had been informed by prophets that his wife had used black magic, or juju, against him.
He also mentioned that his wife had expelled him from their shared residence.
The situation took a strange turn when the family found out that the witch doctor, who had been tasked with killing Baba Gamu’s wife, had obtained her contact information and pictures.
