Sam Ikpe Itauma is the President and Founder, the Child’s Right and Rehabilitation Network (CRARN), and the CEO of Itauma Foundation (IFOUND).

CRARN is a charity group with headquarters in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria and a registered charity in the United States of America. Itauma initiated anti-witch hunt and killings campaign in African in 2000 when he rose to put a stop to the widespread killings of suspected witches, including adults and children in his home state by petitioning the commissioner of police and mobilizing stake-holders. The killings were a re-enactment of the “Inquisition” and the “Salem witch trials.” The killings were organized by different groups of irate and unemployed youths who formed themselves into different cult groups carrying out what they called “witch cleansing” with the backing of some influential politicians and religious leaders. No fewer than 600 people were killed within a space of two months, while thousands fled their homes.
