Abstract:     
The widespread belief in the occult and paranormal in Nigeria in the context of the freedom of thought conscience and religion guaranteed by section 38 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is the basis of this article which examines the search for justice through the occult and paranormal. By the paranormal which is used interchangeably with supernatural I mean phenomena which cannot be explained by science and reason. To some people "occult" does mean the same thing as paranormal. However for many others "occult" refers to paranormal phenomena which is evil and destructive and includes practices such as witchcraft.
