No 'Evil Spirits' In Anambra State Government House - GOVERNOR OBIANO


AWKA,  ANAMBRA STATE,  NIGERIA - Reports that went viral,  wherein media platforms (THE NEWS ACCELERATOR NETWORK not inclusive) had on Sunday (yesterday) purported and reported that the Governor of Anambra State,  Willie Obiano, stated that evil spirits had taken over the Government House in Awka, is not true. 

The denial was made by Governor Willie Obiano in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), James Eze, who described the reports as “false, malicious, misleading and mischievous.”

It would be recalled that the reports had stated that Governor Willie Obiano had during an annual prayer session of the Anglican Church which took place last Saturday in Awka the state capital, requested the congregation to help him to spiritually wage war against the evil spirits in the government house.

However, the CPS, James Eze, said: “Our attention has been drawn to the false and malicious report in the media attributed to the Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, claiming that evil spirits had invaded Government House, Awka.

“That report is totally untrue, mischievous and misleading. It should therefore be ignored by the general public.

“The first thing to note is that Governor Obiano was not anywhere near the venue of the prayer rally event where the report claimed the statement was made.

"The second thing is that investigation has shown that the comment is a mischievous interpretation of a prayer point raised by Rt  Rev. Prosper Amah of Ogbaru Diocese of the Anglican Communion while praying against the challenges facing the nation in general and Anambra State in particular with reference to the recent petrol tanker fire outbreaks.

“Bishop Amah said the prayer during the annual prayer rally of Anambra State held at Ekwueme Square, Awka, directly ascribing the spate of fire disasters to the manipulations of evil spirits and some evil people in society.

“Following the thread of Bishop Amah’s prayer, the Secretary to the Government of Anambra State, Prof Solo Chukwulobelu, who represented the governor at the event, enjoined the church to pray against those planning evil for Anambra State.

“The report claiming that Governor Obiano had raised the alarm about the presence of evil spirits in the government house is false, sensational, malicious and misleading. It should be ignored without second thoughts.”
