A village in Benin
Benin is the birthplace of voodoo, and witchcraft is deeply ingrained in local culture.
Many Beninese view Christianity as a threat to their traditional beliefs. One Christian church has been targeted by a fetish priest intent on disrupting the church’s worship services. The church has been open since 2018, but recently a traditional shaman set up a temple next to the church. Every time the church meets, the fetish priest also holds a service. He yells and screams and casts spells, interrupting the church’s activities.
