Soludo also said he has instructed that the taskforce personnel involved in the crime be made to face the law.
Anambra State governor, Charles Soludo has said the government taskforce that demolished a building at the Prophet Odumeje’s church on Thursday, acted in an unprofessional manner.
He was reacting to a viral video showing taskforce personnel manhandling and assaulting the man of God.
He said all those who took part in assaulting the man of God will face the law.
Soludo wrote on his Facebook page;
“Let me sincerely appreciate ndị Anambra for understanding with us as we take audacious steps towards making our Homeland Liveable and Prosperous. On this journey, imperfect steps will be taken, emotions will run wild and opinions will grow thick.
What is pertinent to note is that we shall remain undaunted, correct our imperfections, strive to put our emotions in check and aggregate opinions that are in the interest of our overall good.
Yesterday’s outing has evoked emotions, not against the decision of government, but the imperfect and unprofessional manner with which one of the task force members discharged his lawful duty. This is highly regretted, and would never happen again. I have instructed that the task force personnel involved in the manhandling of Prophet Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere (Odumeje) be treated in accordance with the rules of public conduct which he roundly failed to uphold.
We will continue to work to actualize the mandate you have given to us. Nothing short of the best outcomes is guaranteed. On behalf of the government and good people of Anambra State, I condemn the assault, and further ask for your continued support in the fight to restore the dignity of Onitsha, and indeed the totality of our Homeland.
CC. Soludo, CFR”
