Fr. John Oluoma, a Catholic priest in Abuja has said that Nigeria’s presidency and the National Assembly, including government houses across the country, are filled with “witches” who are “responsible for the death” of many Nigerians.
The comments can be found in a sermon uploaded on his personal website Here.
“Don’t get carried away, which witches and wizards am I talking about? It’s not all those ones they say fly at night and with brooms. Ah, those ones are not your problem.” The priest said.
“The witches and wizards I am talking about, they are in the presidency, in the National Assembly, in government houses,” the priest, John Oluoma, said in the sermon which held last month in Abuja.
What the priest meant here, apparently, is that leaders who have held down Nigeria, including ordinary citizens who have failed in their service delivery, thereby leading to loss of lives should be branded as “witches”.
“They are civil servants, they are politicians, they are Hausa, Igbo, and Yoruba. They are Catholics, Pentecostals, Protestants, Christians, and Muslims.
“If you are given money to do road and you don’t do the road and somebody has an accident because of bad road and die, what do you think you are? You are a witch! You have taken blood.
“You are given money to equip hospitals, you refused to build the hospital or even equip it, and the medical attention that would have saved somebody is not there and the person dies, what do you think you are? You are a witch!
In the past weeks, Governor Obiano of Anambra state and his Benue state counterpart, Governor Ortom alleged there were evil spirits in their respective government houses.
