Gov Obiano denies ‘evil spirits in govt house’ news

The Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, on Sunday denied reports in some dailies( The Punch not included)purporting that he said there were evil  spirits in the state’s Government House.

In a statement by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, James Eze, Obiano described the story as “false, malicious, misleading and mischievous.”

According to Punch, The story had said that the governor had in an annual prayer session of the Anglican Church held on Saturday in Awka the state capital, asked the congregation to help him to exorcise the evil spirits in the government house.

But in his CPS’s statement, the governor said he did not even attend the prayer session.

The second thing is that investigation has shown that the comment is a mischievous interpretation of a prayer point raised by Rt  Rev. Prosper Amah of Ogbaru Diocese of the Anglican Communion while praying against the challenges facing the nation in  general and Anambra State in particular with reference to the recent petrol tanker fire outbreaks.”

The statement added, “Bishop Amah said the prayer during the annual prayer rally of Anambra State  held at Ekwueme Square, Awka, directly ascribing the spate of fire disasters to the manipulations of evil spirits and some evil people in society.

The CPS maintained that, “The report claiming that Governor Obiano had raised the alarm about the presence of evil spirits in the government house is false, sensational, malicious and misleading. It should be ignored without second thoughts”
