A man has been arrested by the Enugu State Command of the Nigeria Police Force for allegedly arresting a communal deity in his community.
According to reports, the young man whose name is identified as Nnajiofor Donatus had captured the deity of Ibeku Opi, a community where he resides with claims that the deity is responsible for poverty, failure of businesses, and lack of marriage by eligible bachelors in the community.
Donatus who is now in police custody said he was motivated to remove the deity by an unnamed higher force.
He stated further that the deity was responsible for the crashed out of his thriving honey business job in Anambra State, a development which made him returned home with nothing to show for his efforts. Naija News gathered that residents who were frightened at the sight of Donatus and the deity observed that he showed strange behaviour and barked whenever anyone tries to get close to him.
He was said to have acted violently to anyone who tried to stop him from gaining entrance to Okunere adoration museum at St. Theresa’s Catholic Church, to liberate Ibeku Opi community out of the fetish powers of the deity.
