A false prophet recently fled from his community in Nsukka, Enugu State to escape the fury of the youths in the area who had accused him of defiling some boys.
According to reports, the “prophet” confessed to the act and could have been lynched by the youths but for the intervention of the traditional ruler of the community, Igwe Odomeh.
Sources said that the “man of God” encountered brief success when he set shop in the community, Edem, and won many converts who trooped to his programmes and crusades for “miraculous healings, visions and liberations.
In a deft maneuver, he applied Catholic methods of worship like tolling the Rosary and making the signs of the Cross as the community belong mostly to the Catholic faith.
This depleted the membership of the local Catholic Church, St. Dominic’s Church, which became a source of serious concern to the Parish Priest, Rev Fr. Ujah.
The priest reportedly challenged the “prophet” to stop conducting his series in Catholic style or get clearance from the Bishop while ordering Catholics in the Parish to stop patronizing him or face ex-communication from the faith.
But what brought the drama to a permanent end was the allegation that the false prophet had homosexual relationship with boys for which he fled the community in shame.
