The erstwhile Council Chairman in Imo and a Knight of the Anglican Church, Enyinnaya Onuegbu Ngor Okpala has declared that Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha has been de-robed of his governorship seat for allegedly allowing his followers to attack the Archbishop of Owerri Archdiocese of the Catholic Church, Anthony Obinna.
Okpala was reacting to the recent reported attack on Most. Rev. Anthony Obinna, Catholic Archbishop of Owerri Diocese, by political supporters of Governor Rochas Okorocha, led by one Jeff Nwoha.
Speaking to reporters on the issue that has generated controversies, Okpala said, “The unfortunate twist in the saga has been ignorantly situated on whether His Lordship was assaulted or not.
“This is non sequitur. The satanic reaction and aggression of the Jeff Nwoha-led invaders not only inside the church but also at the altar equals to the transgressions of Hophni, and his brother, Phinehas, in the Old Testament for which Almighty God removed the priesthood from the lineage of Eli.”
According to Onuegbu, the invasion of the altar of the Catholic Church during the requiem high mass of a departed Catholic mother whose daughter is dedicated to Christ as a Rev. Sister is not only an assault on the Catholic priesthood but also on God.
“It is immaterial whether the Archbishop was physically manhandled or not, he explained. Imo state government was yet to react to this statement as at the time of this report.
