Voodoo practitioner arrested in airport

By Staff

An Asian black magic practitioner, on an employment visa, was arrested on landing in Abu Dhabi airport.

Officials at the airport got suspicious and checked the Asian’s luggage when they found inscriptions in unknown languages and suspicious tools that he seems to be using in magic and voodoo, reported 'Gulf News'.

Multiple inscriptions, water pens, coloured inks, rings, plastic and metal needles, paper scraps with weird signs, incense, perfumes, oils herbs, plates, cans in metals and plastic containing liquid, etc were confiscated from his luggage,  said Colonel Rashid Bu Rasheed, Head of Organised Crime Section, CID, Abu Dhabi Police.

The 47-year-old accused, who is visiting the UAE for the first time, claims to have been working in this field for 30 years, offering his help for a small amount of money.

The tools found with him were simply forgotten in his luggage as he was in a hurry, he told the investigating officer.
