Lightbulb JuJu/Black Magic in Nigeria: Blood money and Spiritual attacks

Juju or black magic used to be very potent in Nigeria especially in the 70s and 80s. Juju comes from the traditional African religion popularly known as voodoo. Juju practitioners in the traditional African religion are extremists just like the terrorists in Islam although their modes of operation are quite different. The terrorists in Islam attack physically while in Juju the mode of operation is spiritually. Juju includes blood money and spiritual attacks.

Some wicked men used to sacrifice the souls of their wives and children just to make money. Some used to sacrifice their friends, siblings, and even their parents just to make money. these people were killed mostly spiritually and their blood converted into money.

The money they say keeps coming as long as you continue to perform human sacrifice. many rich people in Nigeria today are at times accused of using blood money. Some people go in for Juju just for protection and sometimes for fame. Another form of Juju is witchcraft which is believed to be the lowest rank in terms of Juju powers. You could kill your enemies with juju or you could make their lives miserable with Juju. with Juju, you do not attack the person physically hence the law cannot punish you.

These days because of Christianity, Islam, etc. most people don't believe in Juju powers. Juju is very popular in Benin(the motherland of voodoo) and also Haiti. Not just Africans. Even some Native Americans such as the Cherokees and the Apaches believe in Juju powers.

Some people believe such powers do not exist but that is a huge mistake. We could just pray without watching if there were no dark powers around us but the Bible said "Watch and Pray". If God is light then there must be darkness. I personally do believe dark powers exist although those are powerless before God most high. The fact that they are powerless before God Almighty does not mean they cannot harm mortal men.

Although juju may sound strange to some people, voodoo is part of our(African) culture and traditions. In other words, Africans cannot throw away voodoo. voodoo is part of Africa. The difference between Juju and voodoo(the traditional African religion) is that, the traditional African religion or voodoo mostly helps people unlike Juju which mostly harms people.

Voodoo practitioners are mostly herbalists and wise men who use combination of herbs, barks of trees, etc. to cure diseases. Some get the knowledge from the ancestral spirits and the lesser gods they worship. Juju performers on the other hand use strange objects like the skull of dead animals, human skulls, etc to perform juju powers which mostly harms people. In some situations when they(juju practitioners) know they cannot help, instead of telling people straight away, they demand for even more insane items like the front tooth of a herbivorous lion, the sperm of a dinosaur, etc which are impossible to find.

I learned recently that Juju is on the rise in Nigeria because many people want to become rich and escape the poverty trap. Those who perform juju for people or the overseers of Juju are mostly traditional worshippers like the voodoo worshippers in Benin, Haiti and Togo who worship ancestral spirits and lesser gods. That position is passed on from generation to generation. In other words, you take over from your late father if your late father was a Juju performer.

Do you still believe in Juju? Can Africa prosper with Juju? do you believe in supernatural powers at all?

IF this Juju thing is still existing it is because people in Nigeria still believes on it's powers.
Africans has a strong belief of culture and if Juju is something that they can benefit from they will do it. Even UN can not stop this tradition or belief that the Africans have. In Africa it is all about survival of the Fittest only the strong live.

I have heard about black magic and witchcraft, but I personally don't have any experience with it and I don't know of people who conduct or are victims of it. Nevertheless, I think such things may exist, even though I don't know how does it actually work.

But to kill someone in order to have gain money is so wrong! People can do anything for money nowadays....

i have totally no faith in Juju or black magic, i's all myth. there is nothing called witch craft these are all tools to fool people who are superstitious. it's all a source of making filthy money by those who are clever enough to fool others and from those who are naive and foolish enough to believe all this.

I do recall it being a big thing back then, but do I believe it ? Of course not.
In all honesty though I believe that with the weird and potentially poisonous things that they eat there could technically always be "high", and therefore be disillusion to anything and everything in their everyday life, including any 'rituals' that they may perform.

Question Re: JuJu (black magic) in Nigeria

actually, there are supernatural powers, but one thing that baffles me is why those spiritualists who conduct the rituals continue to live in absolute poverty while they specialize in making people rich. Again, what I ask is "the money that is produced from juju, do they have central bank signatory and numbers?" cos I don't believe money can just come out of the blues

Cool Re: JuJu (black magic) in Nigeria

OK **** what you heard from all the previous responses. I'm 23, was born and raised in NJ but both my parents are from Nigeria, and yes this s**t still exists. They do not practice that s**t but they kept me and my sister away from the people who do. blood money, human sacrifices, and using juju to kill i have never heard of but based on what I have observed juju is usually used to better ones situation/economic status or even to seek revenge on someone and make their life a living hell (and that i have witnessed). so for someone like jessika to say that it is foolish and people are naive, is a stupid remark especially when i know u never been to Nigeria and are completely oblivious to our culture.

I don't believe in the existence of Juju or black Magic but if there is actually something called Juju or black magic in Africa, then Africa is blessed. If you can use Juju to better your life, I don't see anything wrong with that. If you can use Juju to get protection, I don't see anything wrong with that and If you can use Juju to get riches and fame, I don't see anything wrong with that. However, going to the extent of killing your fellow human beings just to make money is just insanity. Using human blood to make money is nothing less than insanity. I was shocked when I read it in BBC that Nigerian Officers in the Nigerian Police force arrested a goat claiming that it was a "car thief" who had use Juju to change into a goat. normally, this makes no sense at all but the People in Nigeria believe so much in supernatural forces and in Juju to the extent that officers in uniforms are now arresting goats based on the Juju or the black magic mentality. God save Africa

I believe that the supernatural (e.g. ghosts) is actually the natural as yet not understood by our understanding of the scientific laws which govern the universe. That being said, I do not believe that people have the power to actually kill somebody by manipulating energies as of yet unknown to science. People cannot manipulate energies that they do not understand.

If people are dying then Juju cannot be blamed, people are committing murders and for whatever reason the law has not brought the culprits to justice. I think that the only way that belief in Juju (or indeed any primitive superstitions) would stop would be better education.

Thank you my brother. This thing is becoming serious in Nigeria. Just yesterday someone killed the mother because he suspected that the mother was using his soul for juju. Anything at all that goes wrong in Nigeria today is attributed to Juju and nobody is ready to accept any reasonable explanation. Some people refuse to work and therefore remain poor. Others work hard and become rich. Those people who refuse to work hard will then refer to those who work hard as using them for money ritual.

If people are using JuJu or what ever you call it to better their lives what is really wrong with that? If people are not using it to harm someone but just to better their lives then what is wrong with that?

People are just being ignorant. There is nothing like Juju and there is nothing like witchcraft. How many educated people believe in Juju and how many educated people believe in witchcraft? Don't be fooled because Juju or whatever you call it doesn't exist. People are just being ignorant

Sure I believe it still exists. Along with all the other pagan rites they perform.
I need to ask Kofi where you are finding all of this information?
You posted a thread earlier saying Obama hates kenya. I don't think Obama hates kenya but I'm sure he and the US doesn't like a lot of the goings on there and in other places in Africa.
This makes it very hard to convince people to vote for African aid.

I am an African. I am a Ghanaian for that matter and that is why I do know a lot about Africa. I know very little about the world outside the continent of Africa but I do know a lot about Africa because it is my home. I was born in Africa and I grew up in Africa so I know almost all that goes in Africa. From the north to south. from east to west. I know much more about west Afria because I am from West Africa.

Default Re: JuJu/Black Magic in Nigeria - blood money and spiritual attacks

I am mixed race. half Nigeria half English. i grew up in Nigeria and moved to England when i was 10. Juju is real. it would be very ignorant of you to believe that it is not. my family have had a first hand account with juju... many people place 'spells' or curses on you if they are jealous or just want you to fail or even die. it is very sad when you acknowledge that it is real, but the sooner you do the better. My trust in God has become stronger because i believe that with his protection i will be safe.
i have had both perspectives of culture from the western and African and there is a very bug difference. juju is more evident in places like Nigeria because people know it is real and some people practice it. in other places like England. i i had never lived in Nigeria i would have the same views as most people believing it is not real a conspiracy.
your culture affects what you believe. but don't be blind!

"Why those spiritualists who conduct the rituals continue to live in absolute poverty.."

that is because the devil is a wretched man by nature and he hates good suits and nice shoes.

for the second part of your question, the money that is produced from juju has the central bank signature and numbers because the devil who issues the juju money is in charge of the central bank and can sign and issue notes anytime, anywhere.

For long, been born and raised in Nigeria, I've been confused about what to believe. But not anymore. Juju exists and is totally evil because it does not come from God. So be it 'good juju' which may bring good fortune to its seekers or 'bad juju' which brings misfortune to the enemies/victims of the seekers, in the end there's always a price to pay. That price is always certainly grave.

those are just illusions. there are no powers in the so-called juju. They do not exist. Just open your mind.

There is different types of juju being practiced. There is the more vulgar juju which involves animal sacrifice and "so called primitive rituals." These are lowly types but evil none the less. But then there is institutional juju which involved larger groups of people and sacrifice of larger groups of people for the benefit of a few in power. Many die by its not over the alter of some African diety, it is through hunger, starvation, depression, poverty, or senseless desperate driven violence.

I live in the US and no evil juju man is as destructive as MerK Pharmaceuticals which killed at least 50,000 people with it's institutionally sanctioned and approved drug, Vioxx.

Lets focus on the real criminals and understand that there is no difference between the mundane and spiritual. Everything is spiritual. Just because you don't practice outward animal sacrifice doesnt mean you are not sacrificing someone for your benefit.

Can Africa prosper with Juju? Does it snow in winter?

do you believe in supernatural powers at all? Would the earth exist without supernatural power?

What I believe means nothing. What is is what is.
