Anambra state governor, Professor Charles Soludo has justified why the state government demolished the church building of a Prophet, Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere, popularly called Odumeje.
The governor in a statement on Thursday by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Christian Aburime, said, the church and other buildings were demolished for failing to comply with government’s directive.
TheFact Daily reports that earlier today, some security operative were captured in a viral video manhandling the General overseer of the Mountain of Holy Ghost Intervention Deliverance Ministry World Miracle Center.
However, the former Central Bank Governor who was silent on the manhandling of the prophet said, the church building and other structures marked for demolition were illegal structures built along the waterways.
The statement reads, “following the expiration of the more than two weeks notice beginning from April 2022 served on developers and building owners who built several illegal structures along the waterway in Fegge and environs within Onitsha, Anambra State government has begun demolition of such structures.
“The exercise which is being carried out by a joint government task force, commenced the exercise from Bida Road by Modebe Avenue, Fegge Onitsha.
“The affected buildings include Mountain of Holy Ghost Intervention Deliverance Ministries, shops and other perimeter fences. The structures were marked since April 2022 and all developers and building owners were served notice to remove such illegal structures,” the statement said .
