Despite being in the jet age with globalization taking centre stage, some communities in Nigeria are still caught up in their traditional ways of life with fervent practice of their cultural beliefs.

In this Channels TV Community Report; our correspondent Doris Okenwa, continues investigation into the alleged killing of twins and infants in some communities in the Federal Capital Territory and examines how lack of development might be contributing to this bizarre way of life.

The journey goes into some of Abuja’s most remote areas where bizarre practices such as killing of twins and infants for cultural beliefs have been going on for years.

According to the missionaries, the killings in Kutara village, in Abaji area council are age-long traditions.
