Igbo Leaders Apologize To Native Doctor On Odumeje’s Behalf
Igbo leaders have made efforts to settle the lingering dispute between Anambra prophet, Chukwuemeka Ohanemere popularly known as Odumeje, and the people of Arondizuogu.
Recall that Odumeje was challenged by a popular native doctor in Arondizuogu after he allegedly spoke against late herbalist Pericoma and the people of Arondizuogu.
On 6 May, a video had surfaced on social media where Odumeje could be heard saying Pericoma’s children are of no use to the society and also that the People of Arondizuogu are very poor over their involvement in fetish practices.
In a follow-up video, Villagers and elders could be seen sitting at the big shrine while a Native doctor performed Rituals against Prophet Odumeje.
The native Doctor called on all their gods to come out and fight prophet Odumeje for condemning it.
He further accused prophet Odumeje of getting his power from India, adding that he cannot get his power from a foreign land and test in their Own Land.
The native doctor then went further to slaughter a fowl which he claimed had been invoked with the spirit of the prophet.
Now, Igbo leaders, who are representatives of Orsu Local Government Area stakeholders, have in a letter, apologised on behalf of the prophet.
In the letter – which the state governor, Hope Uzodinma was copied – the leaders urged the affected parties to bury their hatchet for peace to reign.
While apologising on behalf of the prophet, the Orsu Local Government Area stakeholders, noted that there will be an interface between the two affected parties once the coronavirus lockdown is over.
