    The Morningstarr* Voodoo in Benin

    voodoo lady - Voodoo in Benin

    Benin, West Africa accepts Voodoo as an official mainstream religion and it's practised by almost half the population.

    Voodoo practitioners in Benin, West Africa are being held responsible for the desecration of over a hundred graves and the mutilation of dozens of corpses.

    More than 100 graves at a cemetery close to the Benin capital Porto-Novo have been disturbed and the human remains within mutilated. Bodies have been decapitated or sliced open and heads or internal organs have been removed. Locals believe the grave robbing ghouls are using the body parts to make voodoo good luck charms, almost half the population of Benin practice Voodoo as it is an officially accepted mainstream religion.

    However, Voodoo high priests in Benin have condemned the grave robbing stating that it is not an acceptable practice in mainstream family-friendly Voodoo.
