A star guest at the recent Inaugral ACNA Assembly was the recently retired Bishop of Okigwe-North in the Church of Nigeria, the Rt Rev Alfred Nwaizuzu. At the close of the business sessions, he rose to congratulate the self-satisfied schismatics, and joyfully announced: “Archbishop Akinola is happy.”
As the world’s leading Doctrinal Warrior I felt a sense of duty to find out something more about this hitherto unknown prelate, so went hunting around to find a little about his background.
And what I’ve discovered is crazy. Not Father Christian-Ichabod Springs crazy, but hit-man-Archdeacons-with-guns batshit crazy. As in “The Bishop illegally transferred me from my station to work under his hatchet man, Venerable Kenneth Olebara, who is a gun man. That was where I was meant to have been killed” crazy.
It’s not a short article, but you really need to read it.
Now I’m not an investigative journalist, I’m a Priest. So I don’t have all the resources to verify this that I’d like to have, but I have spent a fair bit of time on the telephone to Nigeria and so far everything checks out. The man behind this story, Emmanuel Asiwe, recently had to flee his homeland as a result of his outspoken stance against corruption and fraud. Among Nigerian human-rights activists his reputation is impeccable. I believe he's telling the truth. Everyone I’ve spoken to insists this is an extreme but accurate example of life in the kingdom of thugs over which Akinola presides.
It’ll be interesting to see if little Bobby Duncan responds: I’ll bet he does his best to ignore this. Although next time he takes the moral high ground about anything I suggest we all remind him of the company he’s not ashamed to keep.
I’m Father Christian, and I’m proud to not be in any way associated with CANA.
