By Praise Chinecherem

Anambra Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo has ordered disciplinary actions to be metted to the personnel involved in the manhandling of Prophet Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere (Odumeje) during demolition of the cleric’s church.

The worship center of the Mountain of Holy Ghost Intervention and Deliverance Ministry owned by Odumeje was demolished on Thursday for being built on drainage channel, while he was brutalized by security operatives following his attempt to disrupt the exercise.

But Soludo in a statement, condemned the brutalization of the cleric, just as he regretted what he described as unprofessional manner displayed by the officer.

He said: “Yesterday’s outing has evoked emotions, not against the decision of government, but the imperfect and unprofessional manner with which one of the task force members discharged his lawful duty.

“This is highly regretted, and would never happen again. I have instructed that the task force personnel involved in the manhandling of Prophet Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere (Odumeje) be treated in accordance with the rules of public conduct which he roundly failed to uphold.”

Appreciating the people of the State for their understanding as he takes “audacious steps towards making our Anambra a liveable and prosperous homeland.”

He added: “On this journey, imperfect steps will be taken, emotions will run wild and opinions will grow thick. What is pertinent to note is that we shall remain undaunted, correct our imperfections, strive to put our emotions in check and aggregate opinions that are in the interest of our overall good.

“We will continue to work to actualize the mandate you have given to us. Nothing short of the best outcomes is guaranteed. On behalf of the government and good people of Anambra State, I condemn the assault, and further ask for your continued support in the fight to restore the dignity of Onitsha, and indeed the totality of our Homeland.”
