The policemen and the elderly men in Ekhiosu’s flat were busy deliberating what to do when Eka dashed into the living room and made for the door. As she tried to open the door, Mr. Paul stopped her, asking, “What are you doing, If you open that door those boys will come in?!” “I need to get my friend in here, that woman has my picture in her bedroom, and how she got my picture is a mystery to me. I just have to bring in my friend here!” Eka’s voice was loud as she explained to Mr. Paul what she was up to. The policemen and the elderly men in the flat had to stop their deliberations and gave Eka attention. When they demanded what the matter was, Eka breathlessly explained to them and insisted she must bring Simbi into the flat. “But what will your friend do? We don’t want this case to escalate,” asked Mr. Paul. “We need to prayerfully remove my picture from the evil mirror in that room.” One of the policemen who could not take his eyes off Eka volunteered to go bring Simbi into the flat. “What is your friend’s name and where is she?” asked the policeman. “Her name is Simbi and she is in the other flat.” The policemen crowded the door as their colleague opened it and went outside. The crowd outside had increased; both young men and women were outside singing, while some women and men craved to set their eyes on the witch who was terrorizing their neighbourhood. Already many had begun to claim that Faustina was responsible for the strange deaths which occurred in the neighbourhood.

At Dr. Gerry’s flat, the policeman knocked and shouted Simbi’s name. Immediately Simbi came out, her eyes darting about. “Your friend wants me to bring you to the other flat. Let’s go.” “What is happening there? Is the witch dead?” The policeman was surprised by Simbi’s question. “Young girl, I have not even seen the witch, so I cannot tell if she is dead or not.” “Give me a moment,” Simbi said and ran back into the flat. In a moment she came back with a bottle of anointing oil; she locked Dr. Gerry’s flat and left with the policeman. When the policeman knocked on the door of Ekhiosu’s flat, it took a while before someone came to open the door for them; all the people inside the flat had gone into the bedroom where Faustina was . Eka had gone berserk and staged a violent prayer on Faustina, invoking fire and brimstone in the name of the Lord upon her. Her prayer threw Faustina into violent demonstrations that even the policemen joined in the prayer shouting, “Holy Ghost fire! Holy Ghost fire!”  Eventually Simbi and the policeman went into the flat after the door was opened. The shouting of “Holy Ghost fire! Holy Ghost fire!”  inside the flat was too tempting for those outside. They surged forward to make it into the flat to see what was happening, but the policemen resisted them.

As soon as Eka who was panting and sweating as a result of how energetically she prayed, saw Simbi, she went into overdrive in her praying. Seeing Eka was off, Simbi asked Dr. Gerry, “Is this the witch?” “Yes! She has confessed she is the one attacking us. But she is yet to give us details of her attacks against us and how she got Eka’s picture.” “What! She took Eka’s picture?” “It is in the other room.” Like an arrow, Simbi shot herself toward the direction of the other room. Dr. Gerry followed her. As soon as Simbi stepped into that room, she shouted, “Jesus! Jesus!” Dr. Gerry almost ran back, thinking Simbi had run into the devil in the room. He had to ask her, “Simbi what is it?” “That woman is a high witch! She is a high witch! There are too many demons in this room.”  When Dr. Gerry and the men in the other room heard the word ‘demons’, they all took off to the living room in fear, leaving Eka facing Faustina alone, while Simbi faced the demons she claimed were in the other room. In a short while, Simbi emerged from the other room with Eka’s picture and then joined her in prayer. Soon both the policemen and the others were on their heels back to the room where Eka and Simbi prayed. Simbi had done the impossible. She sat on Faustina and emptied some of the anointing oil she had into her mouth and grabbed her by the neck and began to pray. It was Faustina’s heart-wrenching shout which drew the policemen and the others back into the room.

Everyone was shocked when they saw Simbi sitting on the feared witch and praying over her. Even Faustina’s husband, who had fled from her when she confessed she ate their children, ran back into his bedroom when he heard the way Faustina screamed for mercy. The policemen had to yank Simbi away from Faustina’s body as she continued to plead for mercy declaring she would confess all her wickedness. For a moment, the men in that room did not know who to be afraid of, whether Simbi or the woman who had confessed she was a witch. “Leave me alone! Leave me! She will not confess unless fire burns her very well,” Simbi fumed when they pulled her away from Faustina. It took two men to restrain Simbi. For some moments everyone waited for Faustina to confess her wickedness, but she would not.  Eka was running out of patience, she could not wait any longer to hear Faustina confess. So she yelled, if I begin to pray again nobody should stop me until this woman has died.” As though Faustina heard her, she began to confess, the men in the room, including her husband began to record her confession, “I… huh… I… I ate my children in Cameroon…” “We have heard that already! I want to know you were attacking me, appearing to me like my grandmother?! How did you get my picture?” There was no answer from Faustina. They all waited for her to confess till they all got angry. The officer in charge of the policemen said to Simbi and Eka, “Young girls, this woman will not confess, indeed she is a high witch. You have my permission to pray her to death. She does not deserve to live!” “Sir if this witch will not confess her sins, then let’s hand her over to the young men outside, in just five minutes she will be dead!”

Just them an idea occurred to Simbi and she ran back to the other room. When she came out, she was carrying a bag. As she made her way toward the exit door, Faustina began to shout. That was when everyone realized how powerful Faustina really was. Even though she had been knocked silly by the power of prayer, yet, she was still able to watch the events going on in the flat with her eyes closed.  The bag Simbi was heading out with had Faustina’s items of witchcraft. When everyone understood what was happening, they ran into the room and began to carry to the living room the items they considered to be for the purpose of witchcraft. Eka was so angry she lifted the mirror on which she saw her picture on and smashed it on the floor and in that moment, Faustina had begun to bleed from both eyes. Before they could come back to the room, Faustina had bled a pool of blood from her eyes. Mr. Paul and the policemen opened the door and invited in some young men and instructed them to carry the items outside and burn them. The young men were happy to do so. As soon as they set the items ablaze on the street, Faustina began to wail in the room, “Fire! Fire! Fire o!” Having destroyed her items of witchcraft they returned to the room only to see Faustina bleeding from the eyes and the room filled with smoke.

If Eka and Simbi had not stood their ground, the men would have ran away from the flat. At this point no one needed to prod Faustina to speak, freely she yelled, “They are leaving me! They are leaving! Eka! Eka eh! Ekaette Efiong! It was not your grandmother. It was me all along. I wanted to initiate you. I wanted you to join us. I wanted to use you to take myself in our kingdom. I visited your grandmother’s grave and saw your star. I went to your father’s house and took your picture. When I saw your star, I presented it in our coven and they promised me that if I could bring you in, they would let me give my husband children who would live and not be eaten. It was me! Eka it was me! I bewitched this house so that the landlord would not be able to give it out. I didn’t want him to send us out of the house. I… I… wanted to drive you away from the doctor, when I could not, I tried to kill him. Your challenges are not over, she is coming, she is coming with much troubles. The materials you found in your room must be burnt with fire. I… cursed…”
