Veteran actress, Rita Edochie has condemned the demolition of Prophet Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere aka Odumeje's church in Onitsha, Anambra State.
The church, Mountain of Holy Ghost Intervention and Deliverance Ministry, is located at Bida Road, off Creek Road, Fegge-Onitsha.
A video of Odumeje’s clash with security personnel during the demolition has since gone viral. In the video, the clergyman is assaulted for attempting to stop the demolition.
Reacting in an Instagram post on Friday, July 8, Rita, who considers the prophet her spiritual father, lamented the assault on him.
She condemned the demolition, saying that the church was not the problem of the state.
Rita further claimed Anambra State Governor Charles Soludo is being used to create problems in the state and Anambra was cleaner when former governor Willie Obiano was in power.
She wrote: “THEY WERE SENT BY THE ANAMBRA STATE GOVERNOR TO BRING DOWN HIS CHURCH. DID HE ALSO ASKED THEM TO BEAT THE LION HIMSELF ODUMEJEJE? ALL YOU START HEARING NOW IS 70 × 7 BUT WHEN YOU ARE DOING THE WRONG THING THAT YOU ARE PAID TO DO YOU WON’T REMEMBER 70 × 7.
“I LAUGH BECAUSE THERE IS SERIOUS WAR NOW IN THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS BECAUSE OF THIS ACT THAT GOD ALMIGHTY USED SOLUDO SENT MEN TO CREATE SO LET’S SEE. A GOOD CLAP FOR YOU THANKS. IT CAN BE YOUR TURN TOMORROW. BUT FIRST OF ALL GO TAKE CARE OF SECURITY, ROADS AND CLEANUP ANAMBRA STATE THAT THE DUSTBIN THERE IS FAST KILLING PEOPLE AND NO BODY IS TALKING. SECURITY, AND CLEANLINESS WERE MUCH BETTER DURING THE TIME OF GOVERNOR OBINAO.''
Speaking further, the movie star wrote: “TODAY YOU CAN NOT GET TO YOUR HOME TOWN OR CAN YOU BECAUSE YOUR SAFETY IS NOT GARANTEED? NO GOOD ROADS IN AGUATA AND THE ENTIRE ANAMBRA STATE WHERE THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO FOCUS ON BUT THE FIRST THING IS TO DEMOLISH A CHURCH AND YOU ARE HAPPY.
“IS THAT CHURCH THE PROBLEM OF ANAMBRA STATE FOR NOW? YOU ARE EVEN MORE HAPPY THAT THEY ROUGH-HANDLED HIM WHICH SHOWS MERE JEALOUSY BUT LET’S SEE WHO LAUGHS LAST AFTER ALL IT’S A QUESTION OF TIME. IGBO EWEZE. CAN YOU BREATHE IF THE SAME THING IS DONE TO AN IMAM? NO, YOU WILL EVEN BE PANICKING BEGGING FOR PEACE TO REIGN.
“CHRISTIANS KILLING AND FIGHTING CHRISTIANS SAME WAY YOU IGBOS ARE KILLING AND FIGHTING IGBOS AND YOU ARE LOOKING FOR WHO IS YOUR ENEMY WHILE YOU KNOW VERY WELL THAT YOU ARE YOUR OWN ENEMY. LISTEN, MAN, YOU CAN NEVER STOP ODUMEJEJE’S SHINE BECAUSE GOD’S GRACE IS UPON HIM. LIONS ALL OVER THE WORLD NO FEAR LION IS STILL LION.”
