Sir Paul Nwosu, the commissioner for information, revealed this in a statement released after the meeting on Wednesday in Awka, saying the government intended to employ this strategy to get rid of criminally inclined individuals.

He explained that it had become important to count and register them as practitioners divided into herbalists and spiritualists when it was revealed that certain native doctors give charms with which gunmen operate.

While acknowledging that some of them offer value to healthcare, he added, “government is also aware that they have contributed to giving these criminals the daredevil confidence that has drove them to conduct terrible acts.”

These crimes included kidnapping, ransom demands, beheadings, and others, according to Nwosu.

He added that if they were found to be responsible for these crimes, it would be simple to remove them from the register.
