March 9, 2014 – Christians Arrested In Enugu Nigeria For Burning Shrines During Crusade

6 guys have been arrested in Umuaji, a village located in Ezeagu LGA of Enugu state after burning down several shrines.

According to Vanguard, the suspect who are Christian people of Umuaji burned down the pagan shrines during a powerful crusade.

The 6-man group claimed that the burnt shrines were responsible for the backwardness of their community and her indigenes, adding that they had the approval of the natives to destroy the shrines as part of spiritual cleansing of the area.

But while Christians in the area were celebrating the destruction of the shrines, the four priests in-charge of the burnt shrines reported the arson to the police which led to the arrest of Nnaeme and members of his group.

Police spokesman in the state, Ebere Amaraizu, stated that the police has commenced full scale investigations into the “incident of burning down of different sacred shrine houses in the community as well as damaging of other valuable items at Umuaji Aguobuowa in Ezeagu local Government Area of Enugu State.

He said:

“On 7/1/14 in the early hours, a group known as Indigenous Christians of Umuaji led by one Joseph Nnaeme, alias 404 gathered themselves and went on rampage during their crusade in the community and during which different sacred shrines of the community were burnt down and other valuable items damaged. Six persons have been arrested in connection with the incident just as the state command has advised members of the community to remain calm and law abiding while the investigation lasts”.

    Let the gods fight for themselves. It is laughable for man to fight for gods! Really, these “products” of the forefathers contribute to the problems we are having today. Mr. Nnaeme, you can only win in this battle if you and your men are more in intergrity than those idol worshipers, otherwise, a kettle should not call pot black.

    The word of GOD says ” For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through GOD to the pulling down of strongholds “.
    The Lord will speak on their behalf in jesus name(AMEN).
