A Chief Priest, in Umuaka, Njaba Local Government Area of Imo State, Marcellinus Obiagwu has warned contractors working in the area not to tamper with his shrine
Speaking to journalists, Nze Obiagwu commended the construction work in the area, but said his shrine should not be touched.
He listed Ezioku Umuaka, Amadioha, Eziadibe and the children’s house as places where his gods are situated.
The chief priest said the gods will get angry and strike if any of the places is destroyed.
Nze Obiagwu urged the state governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha to settle the problem about the Afor Umuaka Market for peace to return to the area.
It could be recalled that same chief priest last week had told the proprietress of the alleged baby factory in the area, Lolo Comfort Ahamefula (Madam 1000) to appease the gods or die.
Nze Obiagwu had submitted that Lolo Ahamefula had defiled the land by her acts.
The chief priest gave Lolo Ahamefula 16 days with effect from May 22, 2013 to appease the gods or face death.
He had listed items Lolo Ahamefula would bring for sacrifice.
Also speaking, the Chairman of Afor Umuaka Market, Chief Gilbert Iheanacho frowned that women in the area protested about the market without consulting anybody.
Chief Iheanacho said the issue could result to something else if not handled properly.
The chairman advised that the price for allocating shops in the market be reduced, adding that the people complained that it is on the high side.
In his remarks, the market leader, Chief Emuka Chimezie stated that the executive and traders of the market are behind the Chairman of Aka City Development Council, Mrs. Ngozi Obiefule.
He said a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between Mrs Obiefule, Eze Amadioha Ojinaka and others that after building the market, those who own shops will be considered first.
Chief Chimezie wondered why the monarch wants to renege on the agreement.
