By John Owen Nwachukwu |

The Assemblies of Light Bearer Greater Church of Lucifer, popularly known as Church of Satan, Ohafia, Abia State, has been demolished and its founder, Ifekwe Udo arrested by the State police command. The church was allegedly destroyed by youths in the area.

Ohafia Area Council Chairman, Fred Idika told reporters that Udo and his Church of Satan would not be allowed to come back to the area, adding that he (Udo) was a bad influence to the community.

Udo, a.k.a Lucifer or Fada-Fada was arrested earlier in the week for flouting the COVID-19 lockdown rules.

Udo who also runs a brothel in Ohafia was also accused of terrorizing the community and this led to the youth of the area destroying the satanic images outside his church when he was arrested.

He is said to have become popular few years back after he established the church and started providing some jobless youths in the community motorcycles on hire-purchase.

The LGA Chairman, Idika said the Commissioner of Police in the state alerted them that Udo violated the COVID-19 protocol directives and that they were coming down to shut the place.

He said the police went there with the Mobile Court to closed down the satanic worship centre.

Idika disclosed that before now, Udo and others had been arrested by police from Force Headquarters, Abuja “over an offence I do not know about, but until they are arraigned, we should be able to know why they were arrested.”

According to the LGA boss, even if Udo was released, the council “would not want him to continue with what he is during in Ohafia because he is a very bad influence on the community”.
