Nigerian actor, filmmaker and politician, Yul Edochie has asserted that a large percentage of religion is “scam.”
The controversial thespian claimed that religion was created centuries ago by men with the intention of dividing and ruling over others.
Yul Edochie stated via his official Instagram page that religion is making people hate each other, which is the opposite of God’s teachings that dwell on love for one another.
He wrote; “A large percentage of Religion na scam. Cooked up centuries ago by men, to control, divide and rule others. God teaches us to love one another. While religion is making us hate each other.”

She stated this via her Twitter (X) account while positing that religious rulers need bad governance to sell cheap miracles to the people.

“On the Muslim side, they will tell you that the suffering here does not matter as your reward is in heaven, so protest is haram. Expect more extremist behaviour from hisbah which will be used to indicate it is because they are trying to establish Islamic ways that things are hard.
“On the Christian side, they will tell you to focus on your personal miracle and not be bothered about government, after all, any government can favour you.
“Expect more miraculous miracles that defy reasoning from pastors, which will be used to indicate if you focus on your personal miracle you can get more than government can give you. As for traditional religions, they always have witches, old people, uncles, and mothers-in-law to blame.”
