Why we destroyed Church of Satan – Abia youths
Youths in Ebem Ohafia community, Abia State have defended their attack on Assemblies of Light Bearer Greater Church of Lucifer, popularly known as Church of Satan.
According to the youths, the attack was to register their grievances against the so-called church and its head, Ifekwe Udo.
The Herald gathered that Udo narrowly escaped death in the Tuesday attack having been whisked away by men of the Abia State Command of the Nigeria Police Force. He had allegedly violated the COVID-19 protocols imposed by the Federal and Abia State governments.
Many statues at the church premises were however reportedly pulled down and the church structure defaced by the angry youths.
One of the youths identified as Kalu was quoted by The Nation as saying that residents of the community were aware of the atrocities committed by Udo, who owns a brothel in Ohafia, but were afraid to confront him because of fears that he had a connection to evil forces.
“The evil that this man commits in this community is too much. The destruction of his church was done not only by youths in the villages, but including others that came from Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt.
“This man has been snatching wives from men with charm. He has been doing all manner of things including collecting land by force.
“We learnt that he made young men to deposit their sperm in a calabash. His hotel is known for series of notorious activities including promoting prostitution and homosexuality. Our youths are becoming irresponsible and wayward as a result of this man’s activities.
“He is dragging the name of our community to the mud and that is why the youths have decided to rise up against him, because if this is allowed to continue, the danger it will bring to our community and the state in general will be unimaginable,” another resident, Chukwudi, said.
