Ogbanje

The 'Ogbanje' are evil spirits, said to plague a family with misfortune. They were said to have once been children, blessed with psychic powers, who were rejected from heaven. They live in the spirit world, in tall trees such as the baobab. Medicine men use talismans, such as shells and thread, to banish their spirits.
