Pregnant Woman And Six Children Tortured To Death By ‘Satanic’ Group In Panama
Ngabe Bugle satanic group have tortured to death a pregnant woman and five of her children in a suspected exorcism in Panama.
The victims, who were from an indigenous community, were rounded up by 10 lay preachers before being tortured, beaten, burned and hacked to death with machetes to make them “repent for their sins”.
14 others have been freed by Police from Ngabe Bugle satanic group, who had been tied up and beaten with wooden clubs and Bibles.
The police officers were alerted by three villagers who managed to escape and travel to a hospital for treatment.
Investigators discovered an improvised church which belonged to a religious sect called The New Light Of God and were shocked by what they saw.
Prosecutor Rafael Baloyes said;
They were performing a ritual inside the structure. In that ritual, there were people being held against their will, being mistreated. All of these rites were aimed at killing them if they did not repent their sins.”
It also found a naked woman inside the building, along with machetes, knives and a goat that had been ritually sacrificed.
Injured children and two pregnant women were rescued and taken away from the remote area with an helicopter to receive proper treatment at the hospital.
A mile away from the building was a freshly dug grave with the bodies of six children and one adult with the youngest victim being just a year old.
Mr Baloyes said;
They searched this family out to hold a ritual and they massacred them, mistreated them, killed practically the whole family.
Villagers have described the sect as “satanic” and called for it to be eradicated immediately.
It is believed The New Light Of God movement had only been operating in the area for about three months – and on Saturday, one of the sect’s members claimed to have received a message from God telling him that everyone must repent or die.
The Ngabe Bugle are Panama’s largest indigenous group and suffer from high rates of poverty and illiteracy.
Ten sect members have been arrested on suspicion of being responsible for the killings, including the children’s grandfather.
