Lady Apostle Helen Ukpabio Deported & Banned From The UK
April 20, 2014 – Lady Apostle Helen Ukpabio Deported & Banned From The UK
Former Nollywood actress-turned lady evangelist Helen Ukpabio has been deported to Nigeria from the United Kingdom after several campaign by human right activists in opposition to her view on witch-children.
Helen Ukpabio who travelled to the UK last week to liberate people from spiritual attacks has been faced with opposition.
The unfortunate aspect of her message is that she targets defenseless children, and usually burdens then with the woes of their families, labelling them witches and asking their families to get rid of such children.
A UK-based Nigerian, Modupe Debbie Ariyo who started the campaign against Helen Ukpabio took to Facebook on Thursday to announce her deportation.
“Helen Ukpabio deported from UK…hurray!!!” Ariyo said. Ariyo, who’s the Executive Director of Africa Unite Against Child Abuse (AFRUCA) in furtherance of her terse release sent as a confirmatory note of the deportation, said that the British Home Secretary, Ms Theresa May was pressured by human right activists and the UK press to act.
“Theresa May was under pressure from charities to act…the evidence was overwhelming too” she stated. Ms Ariyo called on her Nigerian counterparts and the press to borrow a leaf from their action which led to the deportation of Ms Ukpabio.
“Now, it is up to our Nigerian colleagues to learn from our example. These people can be challenged. They are ordinary human beings like you and I.” Ariyo maintained.
Pro-witchcraft group, campaigners lobbied the Home Office that her controversial views are dangerous to children – including what was written in her book that, ‘if a child under the age of two screams in the night, cries and is always feverish with deteriorating health, he or she is a servant of Satan’.
