Anambra State Governor, Charles Chukwuma Soludo, has reacted to the prophecy from a Catholic Priest, Reverend Father Emmanuel Chibuzo Obimma, popularly known as Fr Ebube Muonso, that Fulani herdsmen with tribal marks would attack the Anambra State Government House. In a viral video that surfaced online, Father Ebube Muonso was seen telling his congregation that he saw Fulani herdsmen invading the state’s Government House, and he saw Governor Soludo running out in a pool of blood. He also urged people to pray for the governor.
In his reaction, Governor Soludo told Father Ebube Muonso that he does not believe in his prophecy, and asked him if communicating the prophecy from his pulpit was the best way to go about it, assuming anything was revealed to him.
In the statement which was shared by Daily Post, Gov Soludo said; “I need all the prayers in the world, and I believe that thousands of people of goodwill are praying for us and Anambra. No man has a say regarding his plan for my life.
I do not believe these political or phantom prophecies designed to play to the gallery. That is not my upbringing and faith as a Catholic. You have my contact, and assuming that anything was revealed to you as a threat to my life, do you really believe that the best way to communicate it is on the pulpit?”
Speaking further, Governor Soludo asked him why God did not reveal to him when he was attacked by unknown gunmen at a rally last year that led to the death of three policemen. He also asked why the cleric has not gotten revelation about any of the dozens of violent attacks on innocent people this year so that the people could take caution and pray about it. Gov Soludo said that because of his upbringing, he does not believe in such prophesies.
