Witches always visit me at midnight every single night. I have a lot of courage, and I always overcome my fears.
Even once while I was sleeping, they beat me so severely that my face was dented. The father of my child was still living at that time. I opposed their attempts to initiate me, saying that it is not in my heritage for me to participate in bloodletting and drinking.
“It got worse when I performed ‘Koto Orun,'” I said. Everyone had a dreadful experience when we performed “Koto Orun.” God defended me despite the fact that I wasn’t the only one and because of my candor. I went through a lot during “Koto Orun,” and I probably would have perished.
