The Daniel Kanu New Deal Organization has decried the alleged assault against the Archbishop of Owerri Archdocese, Anthony Obinna by some youths of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In a release by the organization, the group said: “We the above named organization led by prince Daniel kanu joins many other good spirited Imolites and Nigerians in general to speak loudly against the assault and abuse on our revered man of God Arch Bishop AJV Obinna on the altar of God by APC youths led by comrade Jeff Nwoha at the requiem mass of late Lolo Ezinne Juliana Mbata on the 3rd of March 2018 in the presence of the wife of the governor, Nneoma Nkechinyere Okorocha and his son in-law Uche Nwosu .
We register our displeasure at such disdainful act which shows no respect for God. This comes to “prove the fact that Imo state is ruled under anarchy. This also comes to prove that Imo State needs a proper reorientation which is the preaching of the new deal organization as our generation is almost lost and needs rebranding and reorientation to correct. If we allow such type of madness and violence to continue, we may lose even the generation of our children yet unborn.
“We therefore call on all and sundry to shun violence and rascalism as we enter the political period for our State Imo and Nigeria in general to have the desired change and progress that will bring good life to us all. For the rascals that molested the man of God and their sponsors, let God reward them according to their deed for God had earlier warned…” touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm”.
“Imolites and all religious bodies demand apologies from you all for this ugly and shameful sacrilegious action”.
