Soludo Orders Disciplinary Action Against Task Force Personnel For Assaulting Odumeje 

Anambra State governor, Charles Soludo, has condemned the actions of the Task Force personnel involved in the manhandling of Prophet Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere, a.k.a Odumeje, during the demolition exercise in Onitsha on Thursday.

DIPLOMATIC DIARY had reported the demolition of Mountain of Holy Ghost Intervention and Deliverance Ministry led by Odumeje in Onitsha for constituting obstruction.

The structure, located at Bida Road, off Creek Road, Fegge-Onitsha, was said to be erected along Nwagene stream and had to be removed for the actualisation of the Onitsha Urban Renewal Plan.

During Thursday’s demolition exercise, Odumeje was manhandled by security agencies, who accompanied the demolition team following his attempt to stop the officials from carrying out the exercise.

A viral video showed the  cleric being manhandled by security men, including police officers and men of the vigilantes services.

In a statement on Friday, the governor said, such action  would  never repeat itself, and assured that the culprits would be treated in accordance with the rules of public conduct which they failed to uphold.

“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.

“Let me sincerely appreciate ndị Anambra for understanding with us as we take audacious steps towards making our Homeland Liveable and Prosperous. 

“On this journey, imperfect steps will be taken, emotions will run wild and opinions will grow thick”,  the governor said, adding  that his government shall remain undaunted, correct imperfections, strive to put our emotions in check and aggregate opinions that are in the interest of overall good of the public.

“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”,  he said.
