Governor Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra State has said that popular pastor Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere, who is also called Prophet Odumeje, will pay for the cost of demolishing his church in Fegge area of Onitsha.

Soludo said notices were sent to all house owners, whose houses were marked for demolition, and that the affected landlords were all served notices asking them to remove such illegal structures within a given time.

The governor said the people ignored the notices.

He also said that two parishes of the Catholic church were still waiting for demolition.

“It is costing us money. They had several notices to remove such structures, but they refused.

“The demolition started yesterday (on Thursday), and so far so good. The demolition went well, except for Pastor Odumeje, who according to the report drove in, in a brazen manner and attempted to take over the equipment.

“Of course, state work must go on, and security had to stop him. This was a man who was in several meetings we had, and also spoke.

“In fact, this is costing us money, and the structures should have been removed before now, but they chose to test the resolve of the government.

“Once we are done with this exercise, we will compile the bills and send to the persons involved, and they must pay," he said.

According to him, two Catholic parishes involved in the illegal structures waiting to be demolished are St. Dominic Catholic church and Our Lady Queen Catholic church.

He noted that the parish priest of Our Lady Queen Catholic Parish was around when the demolition team visited, and even cooperated with them.
