Catholic Church suspends priest for condemning and banning Igbo choruses in Parish

Angered by the uncharitable conduct of the Parish Priest of Holy Trinity Catholic Church, Ewu-Owa Gberigbe in Ikorodu, Rev. Fr. James Anelu, the Lagos Catholic Church has wielded the big stick, directing the god of men to proceed on leave without pay.

Rev. Fr. Anelu in a bizarre pronouncement, banned Igbo songs and choruses in his parish arguing that the excesses of Ndigbo must be contained.

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

He cited the case of his Benin Diocese where Igbos dominate to the point of becoming the Bishop in person of Akubueze adding that the spirit of God in any place recognises only languages indigenous to that geographical location.
