Angry Rev. Father Bans Igbo Songs In The Church.


The Parish Priest of Holy Trinity Catholic Church, Ewu-Owa Gberigbe in Ikorodu, Rev. Fr. James Anelu has banned Igbo songs and choruses in his Church.

The Priest who angrily stopped a soul lifting chorus during the second collection said the Igbos cannot keep dominating other people even in his Church.

He sighted the case of his Benin Diocese where Igbos dominate to the point of becoming the Bishop in person of Akubueze.

Rev. Fr. James Anelu said that the spirit of God in any place recognises only languages indigenous to that geographical location.

On saying this, the entire congregation went up in tumultuous uproar, leading to abrupt dismissal as people massively walked out of the Mass.

Meanwhile, the Catholic authority has sent the priest to a mandatory leave for making such statement capable of dividing the Church.
