You are thinking that I have been watching too much Nollywood… well, there is some Nollywood connection to this. I do not watch movies much, Nollywood or Hollywood, but someone just narrated the story of one starring a popular comedian.
In the movie, we heard, a group of friends see that one of them is entirely no use to the world and decide to salvage something out of the human mess by turning him into cash. Salivating on the pretty damsels that will be fighting themselves to be seen by their sides as they paint the town red in hummer jeeps, they parcel him up and deliver him to the witch doctor who has the devil’s cauldron waiting. But the ancient man takes a look at the wastrel and warns them that if they kill the man, money will come out but it will be counterfeit money! The guy’s tethers are promptly cut, and as he goes home, he can’t stop asking God how his person managed to come to such a waste that he cannot even produce good money like everyone else killed for ritual.
By now everyone listening to the story was bursting their side with laughter. But it took my mind back to a story in a magazine titled “1000 Naira Notes, Ritualists Go Wild”. Since we know people believe these rituals and have been performing them, is it possible that they are all “deluded”? Or can we assume you can mint money by stewing human parts in some arcane cauldron in this malevolent variant of Satanism? If so, how good are such currency notes vomited by these dead or dying bodies? How do they manage about such details as serial numbers and other CBN details?
Anyone here can throw light into this matter?
