Anambra State Governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo has confirmed that government forces were responsible for the demolition of the church of popular Pastor Chukwuemeka Odumeje.


Soludo in a press release signed on his behalf by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Christian Aburime said Odumeje failed to comply with the government directive to remove the illegal structure he built on a waterway.


The press release with the title: Anambra State Government begins demolition of illegal structures in Fegge, was made available in Awka on Thursday.


It read: “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 release read.


  1. You think 3 months is a enough to buy land and rebuild the people failed to respect the faith...can you try that in a mosque and with an emam or native doctor? Obviously No!!...if you have tried to assist him with a land and the rebuilding process, he wouldn't have come out to interrupt the process of the think is easy to see what you have build over the years,just crumble before your eyes... If not for any thing atleast for God sake and the worshipers...but No... because their was no respect and fear of God in you people...even went to an extent of beating and slapping him, that's an abuse...Mr soludo, that's a wrong note to begin your tenure, we have high expectations on you but this is a total disappointment...I'm a big fan of you but this action is totally unacceptable. You went too far, honestly

  2. You miss the point. Did he build the church on a water way? Did he get the required approvals before building? Until we begin to do the right things or at the minimum support and encourage those who have mustered the courage to enforce doing the right thing, we will continue our slide to anarchy. Your point on the building being a church is plain sentiment. So if he goes to build a church to block the entrance to Niger bridge, he should leave it because it is a house of worship? Get real I beg!
