TRINIDAD: 12 Year Old Boy From Trinidad Bursts Into Flames After Obeah Ritual For SEA Results Goes Wrong.

Sup Travelers?! Did you know that some people actually practice obeah rituals in order to get good results in SEA? Who knew? I had no idea people took results that seriously especially SEA. Well, according to latest reports from Trinidad, a 12 year old boy took part in an obeah ritual in order to get good results in SEA. However, things went horribly horribly wrong. Read on.

According to reports from the Trinidad and Tobago Newsday, a 12-year-old schoolboy is warded at the San Fernando General Hospital from serious burns after he caught a fire when an obeah ritual to get him good results in the Secondary Entrance Assessment (SEA) exam went wrong last Wednesday. The boy was taken to the home of a "spiritualist" in San Juan the day before the SEA results were released. The boy was prompted to remove his clothes and some special oils were pasted over his body for a spiritual bath. He stood over a lit camphor as chants were recited by the spiritualist. During the chants, the boy's body became engulfed in flames. His relative who was there threw water on the boy outing the flames.


The boy was taken to the San Fernando General Hospital and then transferred to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt Hope. where he was treated for burns. Newsday reports that sources from the San Fernando General Hospital stated that the boy suffered burns over 25% of his body. The boy however reportedly passed for a school of his choice, Tranquillity Government Secondary.

Practicing Obeah is illegal in Trinidad and Tobago in case you weren't aware. So there is possibly going to be charges for practicing Obeah and charges for inflicting bodily harm. If charged for inflicting bodily harm someone can face up to 15 years in prison and if charged for practicing Obeah, a fine can ensue. The police are still investigating the case so no charges have yet been made but i'll definitely try to keep you informed if more information is revealed. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
