Ex-Kony Soldier — Warlord May Have CURSED Jason Russell

African warlord Joseph Kony is master of voodoo … who may have willed an evil spirit to poison the mind of Invisible Children founder Jason Russell … this according to a former member of Kony”s child army.

our sources spoke with Richard Akena … who was captured by Kony”s forces 4 separate times when he was a child and was forced to carry out Kony”s evil bidding.

Akena tells us … most people who were captured by Kony believe he is “being controlled by a devil spirit.”

Akena says it wasn”t unusual to see Kony try to use voodoo magic in an effort to thwart his enemies in Africa … and he believes the same voodoo magic could explain Russell”s naked meltdown .

Russell”s family says the breakdown can be chalked up to “reactive psychosis” … caused by stress and lack of sleep. 

Still, Akena tells us he;s convinced otherwise … “This was Kony”s doing.”
