Crocodile Returns With Mans Body After Being Summoned By Witch Doctor
Man was missing after being attacked by reptile
A local witch doctor has allegedly summoned a crocodile to return a missing man that was snatched from a river after he was sunbathing with friends by the water's edge.
The reptile attack saw the man get dragged beneath the water which sparked a massive Police search following his disappearance from Lempake river.
A local villager who specialized in crocodile witchcraft was contacted by the distraught family to cast a spell for the man to be returned by the crocodile.
Not long after the spell was cast, the crocodile returned with the body (see video) between its jaws.

The Sun reports: It then dropped the corpse – with some witnesses suggesting the crocodile had actually been guarding the victim’s body against other predators.
Friend Andi Resmin said: “He was just in the water and the crocodile humped at him and took him.’’
Another local resident, Eet, explained there was a local myth that anyone bathing with clothes on in the river would be fine – but bathing naked would result in a crocodile attack.
Police chief Inspector Talisayan Faisal Hamid, who is investigating the incident, said: “The victim’s friends reported to the officer he was attacked by a crocodile. That night we did a search.”
The officer added nothing was returned that evening and so residents contacted a “crocodile charmer” and the body appeared the next morning on Wednesday.
He said: ”It is also very weird that there were three crocodiles emerged from the river, such as they were guarding the body, so the body of victim could be delivered.

“It is indeed estuarine crocodiles in the river. And people also bathe in the water, so again, it is unlucky that he was killed by the crocodile.
‘’The victim had been torn on the right ribs. He was found dead.’’
Police Inspector Hamid said the important thing was that the body had been found and that locals were now hunting the crocodile.
